Payroll and Finance Administrator

Deadline for applications: Tuesday 4th May, 9am
Salary: £30,000-£33,000 per annum dependent on experience

We are looking for a committed self-starter to join our small finance team in the performance of key administrative activities accurately and efficiently. The successful candidate will take ownership of the role and work using their own initiative, and also be an active part of the wider theatre team. We are looking for a candidate who can display exceptional attention to detail and is committed to meeting deadlines. The company is going through a period of growth and expansion and the candidate should be excited by this prospect, and be willing and flexible to undertake any necessary changes in the job role as required.

The role will be responsible for all the administration involved with recruiting new starters across the company, together with the Theatre Administrator, including job specifications, anonymisation of applications, issuing contracts and the onboarding of new starters (including rights to work checks, employee reference checks and the new starter process). This role will then carry that through to accurate payroll preparation and submissions for weekly, four-weekly and monthly payrolls, up to manager review. The role will also manage the leaver process from manager through to payroll, and will be responsible for administration of the HR database and the HR email inbox.

The role will also support the Head of Finance by taking ownership of monthly reporting of charge card expenses across the business, and the reporting of all receipts spent by colleagues with petty cash advances and debit cards.
The role will suit someone who is excited by the idea of working in a fast-changing environment and having a hands-on approach to supporting and maintaining good internal controls, and being able and willing to implement process improvements.

The finance team currently consists of joint Heads of Finance and a Director of Finance and Administration, so it is a great opportunity to participate in the company and be really hands-on, driving the role forwards to suit the needs of the company.
