Our hard-working team deliver 20 payrolls every month, supporting 17,000 staff including 5,000 casual workers, as well as processing high volumes of fees, expenses and claims.  We support the University’s strategic – and increasingly global – goals, keeping it safe while operating in a complex framework of UK and overseas payroll and finance regulations, and audit requirements of statutory bodies and funding partners.  

You’ll help us deliver the payroll service that employees would expect of a leading, global university.  You’ll do this by maximising the use of technology, and developing your team to deliver excellence in all their personal interaction with our customers.

You are a professionally qualified (Chartered CIPP) Payroll Manager with in-depth, technical payroll knowledge (including international payroll) and experience of operational management of the payroll team in a similarly large, complex, organisation.  You have the skills to communicate and collaborate at all levels, and a commitment to work across departmental boundaries to deliver transformational change in the way our services are delivered. 

When you’re with us, you’re not only working for the University, you’re working for people in our local communities and beyond, who benefit from our teaching, research and social responsibility. Here, no matter what your role or responsibilities, everyone works together with one common goal: to make great things happen. So join us, and take pride in the part you play.

As an equal opportunities employer, we welcome applications from all suitably qualified persons. As we are committed to the principles of the Race Equality Charter Mark, we would particularly welcome applications from the black and minority ethnic (BME) community who are currently under-represented at this level in this area.  All appointments will be made on merit.
