Job Description

People are at the heart of our organization and building an extraordinary culture is foundational to our success. To ensure that our people can focus on meaningful and inspiring work we are in the middle of People Success (HR) transformation.

Additionally, you will play an important part in our transformation to one global payroll provider. We aim to simplify our multi-country payroll landscape, automating the payroll processing with less manual steps. Payroll-related information is updated and handled once. The objective for our People Services team is to deliver extraordinary admin and payroll services to employees working at Unit4 all over the world.

You will report into the People Services Manager and work closely with regional People Success (HR) leaders, the global payroll manager and employees globally. You drive operational excellence, through technology, automation, and consistency across all regions.

  • Submit additional variable payroll input e.g., overtime, absences & leave data for the external payroll provider(s) to process
  • Make sure all is done accurately, timely and completely
  • Coordinate with the global payroll manager to make the payroll activities run smoothly
