Ensuring staff are paid accurately and on time is an essential requirement for an organisation. For this reason Payroll is key to any business, and the Payroll Manager is an important member of the Finance team.

We currently process the payroll for 4,500 employees across Bracknell Forest Council including schools, leisure sites and care homes. It is a complex payroll, with many diverse types of contracts, terms and conditions and payments. Our current arrangements are working well and we have low error rates and high customer satisfaction.

We want to build on this success by offering services to other organisations, using our skills, expertise and strong reputation to expand our customer base. We need a confident and experienced Payroll Manager to develop and take forward this strategy, while ensuring our core service to the Council is not compromised.
