We have an exciting opportunity for a Payroll Manager to bring their technical expertise and leadership skills to the East Sussex County Council payroll team.

If you have experience of managing payroll, associated systems and statutory compliance we want to hear from you. We are looking for someone with a level 5 CIPP qualification or a similar level of experience running end to end payroll processes in a large organisation.


About Us

The County Council operates a monthly payroll as well as payrolls for Bureau customers and East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service. The payroll team produces some 160,000 payslips per annum.
