We have a proud tradition of connecting New Zealanders to the world through a range of diverse and innovative services.  We’ve been around for over 170 years, playing a pivotal role in the lives of New Zealand businesses, communities and families.  Through innovation, we’re making sure we’re going to be around for a while longer.

About the team

This is a busy team who provide payroll support and contractor pay functions to 4,500 employees and 4,500 contractors.  The team are in a transformative phase, aiming to be a customer-centric payroll team who are focused on increasing and implementing efficiencies across the payroll function, continuous improvement and making it easy for our customers. 

What we’re looking for

First and foremost, you’ll need to be a dynamic and agile leader who understands transformation and can demonstrate your ability to own and execute a vision for the evolution of our payroll function.  You’ll need to assess what needs to be done to reach our objectives, determine how we should work, then make it happen.

You’ll need to understand a partial outsourcing model so that you can work closely with our partners in Manila, and it is essential that you will be able to collaborate and engage with stakeholders to simplify the complexities across our payroll function.

Compliance, payroll legislation and processes will be second-nature to you, you will need to be fully-fluent in the Holidays Act and be able to drive compliance and standards across the team.

We are interested in how you get things done – your relationships, your style and your tenacity.  We would see you coming from a large complex organisation, where you would have led a team of specialists within a high-volume financial or operational shared services type environment.

If we’ve just described you, and you’re willing to get stuck into an interesting role that will provide you with opportunities to prove your strategic worth, then we invite you to apply before 5pm on Tuesday 12 November 2019.

Please apply online, visit our site for the Job Description, or for further information call Nikki Tuhou on 027 229 8364.

All applicants will be required to provide proof of their eligibility to work in New Zealand. Appointees will be subject to a security and credit check and may be required to undertake a drug test.
