  • Providing pastoral care and support to new hires and apprentices 

  • Collaborating with the broader L&D team to establish a comprehensive development framework for payroll employees. 

  • Collaborating with the L&D team to design a training program for payroll managers 

  • Reporting on predefined key performance indicators (KPIs) and delivering weekly updates to the SLT. 

  • Coordinating with the wider Managed Services team to establish an appropriate Learning Management System (LMS) playbook for payroll. 

  • Contributing to the development and implementation of evaluation mechanisms to gauge the effectiveness and impact of training programs.  


What are we looking for?

  • Excellent communication skills. 

  • High attention to detail. 

  • Strong influencing skills, enabling the ability to inspire and guide individuals toward shared objectives.
