You should be inspired by the potential of this role and have the experience to help us make a difference. Ideally you will be someone with a strategic approach, keen to pioneer digital initiatives to support our ambitions. Above all you will need the tenacity to ensure all systems are functional, efficient and robust.
We need someone with experience of working in a similar role for a large organisation. Someone who has an analytic approach and who can ensure data is accurate and concise. As well as experience using iTrent for a large payroll, you should be used to managing data for a Pensions Scheme.
