500 new stores in just twelve years, 1000 new people in one. It’s fair to say we’re growing fast! In fact, we’ve doubled in size in the last five years. Our stores are springing up all around the country – now no-one is ever more than half an hour away from their nearest Screwfix. Operational Finance ensure all finances run smoothly behind the scenes, enabling the business to grow and achieve its objectives.

The Payroll Officer role

We’re expanding fast and need to ensure our staff are looked after; paying them correctly and on time. You’ll be responsible for a number of geographical trade counter areas of the business, covering around 900 employees, processing new starters, interrogating an Excel based system for each Store of hours worked and absence recorded and leavers. You’ll ensure continual, critical evaluation of the accuracy of data that takes place. It’s essential that you maintain and grow excellent working relationships with your colleagues, both with the team and at store level to facilitate easy flow of information.

The skills you’ll need as a Payroll Officer

You’ll need to have a detailed understanding of current payroll legislation & keep yourself informed with regulatory changes. Ideally, you’ll have experience of working in a high-volume payroll environment. With a flair for multi-tasking, you’ll have excellent organisational & time management skills. We’re looking for someone who can handle a busy, fast-paced business. You’ll be able to adapt quickly and love the opportunity to problem solve. Your communication skills and ability to make informed decisions are first-rate and you’re used to working with highly confidential information.

But what’s it really like to work here? The pace is fast and the standards are high. We work very hard to meet the needs of our customers and be even more successful. But make no mistake, we also like to have fun, muck in and support each other. As our people make all the difference, we believe in promoting from within, which is why a career at Screwfix can really take you places.
