    Fantastic career opportunity with a global public company with operations in over a dozen countries. This is a diverse role that is great for someone who enjoys leading a highly complex payroll and benefits function. Our client is open to relocating a qualified individual from anywhere in Canada or the US. This role can be based out of Vancouver, BC, or Atlanta, Georgia. Qualified candidates will have hands-on experience with both Canadian and US payroll. 

    Who- the Company:

    Swim Recruiting is thrilled to be engaged as the exclusive recruitment partner on this senior leadership payroll search. Our client is a highly successful and innovative 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 Senior Manager, Payroll & Benefits who will lead the complex payroll and benefits function for close to 800 employees across North America with the position later expanding to include opportunities to build standardisation in payroll and benefits in Europe and Asia (400 employees). Reporting into the Senior HR Director and managing two direct reports. The new Senior Manager will be responsible for managing and contributing to the smooth and accurate day-to-day processing of payroll and benefits, process improvement, troubleshooting, shaping the strategic direction of the payroll and benefits function, change management, and generally managing the smooth and efficient functioning of a complex North American payroll. This role may involve very occasional international business travel in the future. Swim will provide interested candidates with a thorough job description. 

    Who- the Candidate: 

    We are looking for a seasoned payroll & benefits professional with over 10 years’ progressive payroll and benefits experience as well as experience managing direct reports. The ability to manage and navigate successfully through change, build systems and processes with a view to striving for ongoing improvement, effectively oversee a complex and nuanced payroll with a roll-up your sleeves approach is essential. Proficiency in both US and Canadian payroll is required (the more states and the more provinces, the better!), and experience managing payroll for employees residing in countries outside of North America is a significant asset. Experiencing managing a company’s benefits function and programs is also important, although not crucial as hands-on payroll experience. This role involves both a lot of teamwork and autonomy, and we’re looking for someone who can partner with employees and leaders, be an integral part of the Payroll and HR team while also contributing to projects and initiatives, in North America and globally. 

    Bonus Points

    • Experience working for companies with significant operations in both the US and Canada.  
    • Experience in a public company, Expatriates and Board of Director fees
    • Understanding of 401Ks and RRSPs
    • Recent proficiency in ADP Workforce Now
    • Exposure to equity payroll transactions including RSUs, PSUs, and Stock Options 
    • Canadian Payroll Association and/or American Payroll Association Certification 
    • Experience working in the fast-paced technology sector is an asset 

    How Much: 

    Very competitive base salary commensurate with level of skills, experience, and education. The company will provide their new Senior Manager, Payroll & Benefits with a solid overall compensation package, including a performance-based bonus, an RRSP (or 401K) match, and excellent health & dental benefits.  

    Where: 

    Greater Vancouver, BC, Canada is where this person’s direct boss and several peers are located, therefore Vancouver is the preferred residence of the new Senior Manager. That said, there is also opportunity to work out of a US office, most likely in Atlanta, Georgia. Please discuss further with Swim.

    Swim Recruiting has been engaged as the exclusive recruitment partner on this search and our firm will be presenting the profiles of short-listed candidates directly to the hiring team.

Reporting into an experienced and motivating TA Manager, the TA Specialist will be responsible for full-cycle recruitment for a high volume of reqs and providing candidates and new employees with an excellent experience.

    Competitive base salary commensurate with the hired individual’s experience and qualifications, plus great benefits, RRSP match, L&D support, etc. Please discuss further with Swim. 

    Where: 

    Working remotely from home, or perhaps working from a small corporate office depending on where the TA Specialist lives. The preference is for this TA Specialist to be based in Ontario given the growing operations in that province. That said, we are also open to strong candidates based in Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Quebec, and Nova Scotia, as long as they can primarily work EST hours.  Currently most corporate employees of this company are working from home due to Covid-19 physical distancing.
