Payroll Supervisor

» search for more Jobs

Payroll supervisors oversee the process of payroll administration. They are responsible for maintaining records, creating reports and making sure that obligations like superannuation and leave pay are met by employers. While they must have excellent accounting and book keeping skills, they also need to have some knowledge in industrial relations, so electives in this area are useful. Payroll supervisors may be called upon to provide advice and recommendations to employers on their financial position and on issues such as award rates of pay and employee entitlements. Qualifications necessary for this position may vary depending on the size and structure of the organisation, though university qualifications in accounting, finance and human resources are always very well regarded.
