Payroll & Expenses Administrator – 18 Month FTC Temporary

  • Innocent

Innocent started with a simple mission: to make drinks that make it easy to do yourself some good. In 1999 we concocted a few smoothies in our kitchen and tested them on people at a music festival; today we’re blending every type of fruit & veg under the sun and selling drinks right across Europe. We have great ambitions: to show the world that you can build a successful business that cares about more than just profit, and to leave things better than we find them. We’re proud to call ourselves Europe’s favourite little healthy drinks company, but we’re still growing. And that means we need more brilliant people who share our ambition, to join in with the next, most exciting, part of our story.

What you’ll be doing:

We’re looking for a payroll and expense guru to run our UK payroll and group expenses system. This is an excellent opportunity for someone who knows the world of payroll like the back of their hand and wants to develop themselves across the wider business.

Your main responsibilities will be:

  • Keeping up to speed with movers and shakers across UK and Ireland (around 300 people), processing them through payroll
  • Providing support for payroll in our other regions across Europe
  • Being the business owner for our group expense system (Concur), posting all the costs at month end in to our financial ledger and ensuring balance sheet accounts are reconciled.
  • Responsible for ad hoc queries and maintenance of the system data
  • Partnering with our people team (HR) to ensure all changes are captured and reporting obligations are met
  • Processing of weekly confidential payment runs through Citibank.
Once you’re up to speed there will be plenty of opportunity to take on additional stretch projects.

To be considered, you will have:

  • Experience running a UK payroll with relevant systems (preferably ADP Freedom)
  • An understanding of taxes and reporting obligations
  • A head for numbers, with a keen eye for detail and great organizational skills
  • The ability to work autonomously whilst being able to partner with multiple stakeholders
  • A clear communication style, with the confidence to build relationships across the business
  • Experience working with our accounting and expense systems (Great Plains & Concur) and financial knowledge around debits/credits, would be a bonus.

You will get:

  • Great opportunities to partner with teams across the business
  • To enhance your financial knowledge of payroll and expenses
  • Chance to develop beyond Payroll.
You will help us to keep doing business the right way – keeping innocent one of the Sunday Times Best Places to Work, using our B Corp status to inspire wider change, and reinforcing our culture of staying little as we grow big.
In return for everything you can bring, we can offer you an exciting, challenging role in a fast-growing and dynamic business, with plenty of career opportunities in the UK and across Europe as well as a competitive rewards package.  We also have some great clubs, a free breakfast and as many smoothies as you can shake a stick at. Take a look at our reward page for more details.
If you think you have everything we’re looking for and more, then we’d love to hear from you. You’ll need to get your skates on though, as applications close soon.
Dolly Parton may have worked Nine to Five but you don’t have to. We’re all about being healthy and happy here at innocent so we’re open to a chat about flexible working. No promises, but we reckon that if it’s good for you, then it’s good for us.
