Lots of room for long-term career growth and professional development.  Read Full Description
Our client is a successful, stable, and well-established Canadian company with over 2000 employees that is growing quickly- both organically and through acquisitions.  They have an excellent opportunity for an experienced Senior Payroll Specialist who wants to process an interesting, complex, multi-provincial payroll. Lots of room for long-term career growth and professional development. 

Who- the Company: 

Our client was established decades ago and has evolved to become one of the largest in their industry in all of Canada. The company has been growing by leaps and bounds- both organically and via acquisitions.  Many of their employees have been with the company for 10 years or more, which speaks volumes about the organization’s values and commitment to their people and their customers. In the last couple years the organization has undertaken major business and digital transformations. The company has been hiring very impressive leadership, and it’s a very well-respected and well-managed business in a backbone industry that is relatively recession-proof (for example, no lay-offs occurred due to Covid-19). 

What- the Role: 

Our client has a growing HR team and they are looking to hire a new Senior Payroll Specialist.  Reporting into the Manager, Payroll & Benefits, the Senior Specialist will work on a Payroll team of 5 who process the Canada-wide payroll for approximately 2000 employees. The company currently has employees in BC and 6 other Canadian provinces (Alberta, Ontario, etc.). The company uses Ceridian Dayforce as their HRIS, and the Payroll & Benefits team is optimizing their use of this sophisticated system.  The Senior Payroll Specialist will work alongside HR colleagues in benefits, compensation, learning & development, HRIS analysis, HR projects & operations, talent acquisition, etc., and also collaborate with departments outside of HR such as Accounting & Finance.  Because the company has been growing exponentially via acquisitions, there is some interesting post-acquisition integration work to contribute to with the goal of streamlining and improving the company’s payroll processes. Swim Recruiting will provide interested candidates with a more detailed job description. 

Who- the Candidate:  

We are looking for a proven Payroll professional with at least 5 years’ relevant and recent in full-cycle payroll processing. In addition to the technical skills, we are seeking individuals who are friendly, down-to-earth, humble, assertive, knowledgeable, helpful, and curious. Great communication skills are crucial, as is a self-motivated work style and the ability to encourage a team-player attitude.  This is a very values-based company that gives back to the community and seeks out employees who embody their culture of mutual respect, efficiency, honesty, and customer service. There is definitely room for professional development and career growth with this company! 
  • Experience processing salary and hourly payroll for a company with 500+ employees is required. Experience working in a company with 2000+ employees is a significant asset.  
  • Experience with T4s, T2200s, ROEs, employer health tax remittances, etc. 
  • Multi-provincial payroll experience is required- minimum BC plus one other Canadian province, and the more provinces the better! 
  • PCP certification is viewed favourably (this company is a passionate supporter of employee professional development). 
  • Understanding of different employee benefits (RRSP match, health & dental benefits, PD allowances, etc.). 
  • Experience in the retail sector (i.e. multiple locations/branches/stores/operations) is a bonus, not required.  
  • Experience using Ceridian Dayforce is very beneficial!  

How Much: 

Competitive base salary commensurate with the hired individual’s experience and qualifications- plus an RRSP match, professional development support, and great benefits. Please discuss further with SWIM.

Where: 

Currently most employees are working from home. The beautiful corporate headquarters will reopen in Greater Vancouver in spring 2022 and the Senior Payroll Specialist will work from the office 2 to 4 days a week.

If you are qualified for, and interested in, this fantastic Senior Payroll Specialist opportunity with a high-growth and stable company, please let Swim Recruiting know as soon as possible as this search is moving very quickly!
