The business is a global player with solid growth year on year and the role would suit someone with proven experience within an international company, accustomed to reporting within a corporate structure.

Reporting to the Chief HR Officer, the role will be based in St Neots, Cambridgeshire. An office presence will be needed but some working from home will also be supported.

  • Conducting regular audits of payroll processes to ensure efficiency and compliance.
  • Managing the administration of employee benefits programs, including health insurance, retirement plans, and other voluntary benefits.
  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams, including HR, finance, and legal, to ensure effective communication and coordination of compensation and benefits initiatives.
  • Provide guidance and support to HR team members and managers regarding compensation and benefits-related matters.

Ideally you will have a minimum of 2 years experience in operational benefits and payroll processes in the UK and the US.

The successful candidate will be a confident IT user with strong Excel skills and the ability to get to grips with systems quickly.
