Payroll Manager Recruitment

Payroll Managers are expected to oversee and supervise the company's payroll functions. They work with Human Resources to design and operate payroll systems, directing collections, and gather employee time data.

The Payroll Manager's Role

After years of Payroll Manager recruitment experience, JMF Associates has found that the role has evolved. They must do more than determine and dispense salaries.

Payroll Managers must also act as administrative personnel that can restructure the payroll system to improve the workflow. They must also be highly knowledgeable in legislation pertaining to payrolls and required benefits and other regulations. This keeps the company legally compliant in its tax responsibilities.

Experienced Payroll Managers also audit the payroll system, recommend improvements, and implement new processes when necessary.
For example, suppose a Payroll Manager has experience working with timekeeping platforms and software to streamline the payroll system. In that case, they can recommend implementation throughout the whole company. Furthermore, they need to train their personnel in its usage.
