Fantastic career opportunity with a global public company headquartered right here in Greater Vancouver. This is a diverse role that is great for someone who enjoys overseeing a complex payroll. Our client is open to relocating a qualified individual from elsewhere in Canada and possibly from the US. 

Who- the Company: 

Our client is a successful international company headquartered in the lower mainland with over 20 years of history, approximately 1000 employees, and exciting projects on the go. The company has a fun-loving yet hard-working corporate culture with friendly and down to earth employees. If you are a proven payroll & benefits leader who is looking for a successful and exciting global company to work for, this could be the place for you!

What- the Role: 

Our client seeking a new Manager, Payroll & Benefits who will oversee a complex payroll of close to 1000 employees across Canada and the US. The company is in the process of outsourcing some of their G&A functions, and the direct payroll processing will soon be done by a 3rd party solutions provider. The new Manager will be responsible for change management, ensuring the SLA quality metrics are met, troubleshooting, and generally managing the smooth and efficient functioning of an outsourced payroll. Given this, the Manager is not directly taking care of hands-on payroll data-entry and processing. This role may involve very occasional business travel. Swim will provide interested candidates with a more thorough job description. 

Who- the Candidate: 

We are looking for a seasoned payroll & benefits professional with over 10 years’ progressive experience and a focus on excellent customer service (internal and external). The ability to manage change and effectively oversee a complex and nuanced payroll is essential. US payroll experience is highly preferred (the more states, the better!), as is previous experience managing a 3rd party service provider.  The Manager will also be responsible for high-level benefits administration and ensuring compliance with COBRA, HIPAA, IRS, etc. This role involves both teamwork and autonomy, and we’re looking for someone who can partner effectively with 3rd party consultants, employees, and leaders (based remotely and locally) while contributing to various projects and initiatives. 

Bonus Points

  • Experience managing a 3rd party payroll provider (this would be highly advantageous!)
  • Experience in a global public company and with SOX compliance
  • Understanding of 401Ks and RRSPs
  • Exposure to equity payroll transactions including RSUs, PSUs, and Stock Options 
  • Canadian Payroll Association and/or American Payroll Association Certification 
  • Experience working and living in the US 

Where: 

A lower mainland suburb, accessible by transit and plenty of free parking provided. Good work location for someone living in Vancouver, Burnaby, Richmond, Delta, New Westminster, Surrey, etc.

    Fantastic opportunity to lead talent acquisition for a global public company headquartered in Vancouver. The responsibilities of this role include full-cycle recruitment for diverse corporate positions (based locally and internationally), working on employment branding, contributing to onboarding & orientation, etc. Collaborating closely with HR peers in other specializations. 

    Who- the Company: 

    Our client is a billion-dollar global public company, headquartered in Vancouver, with a great reputation worldwide as a leader in their industry. Over 3000 employees working in several countries.

    What- the Role:

    We are seeking a new Talent Acquisition Specialist on behalf of this complex and sophisticated organization. The Specialist will be working on full-cycle recruitment for various professional positions in accounting, corporate finance, legal, operations, IT, etc. The Specialist will also nurture recruitment vendor relationships and ensure optimized use of the company’s ATS. 
    Working closely with a collaborative and dynamic HR team with the direction and guidance of an impressive senior leadership team. This will be the sole person dedicated to talent acquisition in the company headquarters and the hired individual will play a key role in the organization’s continued success and growth. The number of corporate searches open at any given time is not particularly high, so the TA Specialist can put in quality, strategic recruitment time and conduct targeted headhunting. 

    Who- the Candidate: 

    We are seeking well-rounded recruitment professionals who are self-motivated, fast-paced, and confident, as well as versatile, strategic, and creative in their approach to talent acquisition.

    • Previous multi-national recruitment experience is highly preferred. 
    • The ideal profile is a blend of full-cycle recruitment experience in agency and in-house corporate. 
    • Ability to communicate effectively with senior-level executives. 
    • Although this consulting role is for the most part focused on talent acquisition, we are open to individuals who a) are HR professionals with recruitment experience who want to continue to specialize in TA or b) are TA professionals wanting to gain some more work experience related to general HR.

    Why: 

    There are very few TA opportunities in Vancouver where you get to interact closely with the C-Suite of such a complex global public company. Working with peers in other HR specializations such as Total Rewards and Employee Relations. Very large company, yet the TA Specialist will have the ability to make a significant positive impact in both the short-term and long-term. 

    Where:

    Downtown Vancouver. 

    How Much:

    Competitive salary commensurate with experience, plus a variable bonus, an RRSP match, and good benefits. Please discuss further with Swim.

    Fantastic career opportunity with a global public company headquartered right here in Greater Vancouver. This is a diverse role that is great for someone who enjoys overseeing a complex payroll. Our client is open to relocating a qualified individual from elsewhere in Canada and possibly from the US. 

    Who- the Company: 

    Our client is a successful international company headquartered in the lower mainland with over 20 years of history, approximately 1000 employees, and exciting projects on the go. The company has a fun-loving yet hard-working corporate culture with friendly and down to earth employees.

    Bonus Points

    • Experience managing a 3rd party payroll provider (this would be highly advantageous!)
    • Experience in a global public company and with SOX compliance
    • Understanding of 401Ks and RRSPs

    Our client is a well-established, diverse, reputable, and high-growth company with operations across Canada and the US. This company hires people who embody their values of teamwork, honesty, respect, and excellence. The organization has grown by leaps & bounds in recent years, and the company as a whole will continue growing both organically and through major acquisitions. 

    What- the Role: 

    We are seeking a System Implementation Specialist who will work alongside an IT Project Manager to lead the major upgrade of the company’s time & attendance system, Kronos. This project will take close to 2 years to complete. The new Implementation Consultant will ensure the system is configured in the best way possible to support the company’s large, diverse, and busy operations.

We are seeking people with a minimum 5 years relevant experience.  Experience using or implementing ADP products such as ADP Workforce Now is an asset.

    Who- the Candidate: 

    • Qualified candidates will have at least 2 years progressive full-cycle recruitment experience- ideally a blend of both agency and in-house, but one or the other is fine. 
    • Technical recruitment experience is highly preferred given the nature of most of the recruitment at this company, but is not necessarily required for someone self-motivated who can learn quickly and who has a personal passion for IT. 
    • Qualified individuals will be at their very best in a fast-paced, high-change, and creative work environment. 
    • Relevant experience working in a high-growth mid-size technology company is highly preferred, but certainly not required for someone who embodies the company’s culture and values. 
    • An entrepreneurial mind-set, thirst for knowledge, and big picture approach are all key. 
    • This company isn’t very big (yet!) and all employees have a “roll up your sleeves” approach to work. 
    • We are looking for people who are passionate about their career, but who also lead a full life outside of the office. 

    How Much: 

    Competitive base salary commensurate with level of experience, please discuss with Swim. There is also a performance-based bonus, a health spending account & personal spending account, and tons of fun social outings and meaningful charitable events.
