HR GO plc is a leading staffing group with offices across the UK, Poland and Australia. Established in 1957, HR GO operates across all sectors of the staffing industry to help candidates find work and customers find talent.

At HR GO we know that seeking employment and finding talent are urgent and important challenges to our customers. We know that it's important for customers to have a transparent, responsive, personal, and attentive service from their recruitment partners. We operate to remove the uncertainty and stress from job seeking or talent searching.

We are a private business with a culture of entrepreneurialism and personal service. We invest in cutting edge technology and research and development to build tools and systems that offer a more efficient and transparent service to our customers.

In supporting our payroll department, you will play a key role in the service we provide to our customers. You will collaborate with team members and managers to ensure accurate and timely wages are paid to thousands of candidates each week.

Sometimes things go wrong and when it comes to people's pay, there's nothing as important. This means that sometimes the job can be stressful, with stakeholders wanting to know where their pay is or whether the calculations are correct. You will need to be able to cope when things don't go right, to ensure our candidates receive the wages they are entitled to and learn from the experience to make continuous improvements.

Innovative systems are key to the future success of HR GO. Therefore, you should have an interest in the digital and technological transformation of payroll, as well as a rounded technical understanding of payroll and pensions administration. Our systems are becoming more sophisticated and integrated all the time, and you will play an important role in finding smarter ways of working through technology and better integration, systems, and processes, for the benefit of our customers. Engagement with software engineers and IT teams is an important part of the job and you will need to be able to communicate and work with them to be successful.
