Fantastic senior-level payroll opportunity with one of Vancouver’s most well-established and stable companies. Leading a team that processes multiple payrolls- salary & hourly, union & non-union, executives, etc. 4 to 5 direct reports. Competitive total compensation package.
Who- the Company:
Our client has many decades of history in British Columbia and has grown to become one of the largest privately-held companies based in Vancouver. The company believes in the importance of health & safety for their employees and customers, corporate social responsibility, and diversity & inclusivity. Very stable organization with diversified operations and a bright future!
What- the Role:
On behalf of our client, SWIM is seeking a new Payroll Supervisor. The Payroll Supervisor will manage, lead, and mentor anywhere from 3 to 5 direct reports, including Payroll Specialists and Payroll Support Staff (mostly full-time employees, sometimes contractors). The Payroll Supervisor will report to the experienced Payroll Manager.
The Payroll Supervisor will ensure the smooth day-to-day functioning of their payroll team, while also contributing to process improvements, payroll-related projects, and payroll system optimization. The payroll team uses an ERP-based payroll system, Excel, and various timekeeping systems.
