Posted 3 months ago
  • Do you have 5+ years’ experience leading the payroll function?
  • Are you a positive team player looking for the next step in your career?
  • Are you continuously looking for improvements in systems and processes?

After 40 years with Port Nelson Ltd, our Payroll Manager is moving on leaving some big shoes to fill. Are you up for the challenge?

Port Nelson is the maritime gateway for the Nelson Marlborough region – a vital hub for economic activity and a key stakeholder in the region’s continued growth and prosperity.

Reporting to the CFO, you will be responsible for managing and coordinating the PNL payroll function ensuring that an efficient and effective payroll service is delivered to all 300+ stakeholders; managing payroll reporting and overall system administration; and providing compliance administration for the company. You will be key to driving continuous improvement of the HRIS (Pay Global) system and be across all relevant employment legislation and taxation requirements.

Day to day you will be the super user of Pay Global ensuring all payroll details and maintenance is kept up to date. You will provide excellent customer service and advice to Managers and employees, investigating and problem solving when required. There will also be times where your payroll expertise will be required on projects throughout the business, therefore flexibility to pitch in will also be required.

With 5+ years of payroll experience (preferably in Pay Global), you will have a proven track record with technical knowledge, usage and support of payroll/HRIS. You will be detail oriented and be able to work well under pressure. Excel will be a breeze for you, being able to report and analyse effectively. You will be an excellent communicator with well-developed time management skills ensuring all payroll and reporting deadlines are met.

There will be a considerable handover period ensuring the successful candidate is fully up to speed. This is a rare opportunity to join one of Nelson’s leading employers.

At Port Nelson Ltd, irrespective of our positions, we all strive to uphold our “ASPIRE” values: accountability, safety, passion, integrity/honesty, respect and excellence.
