Payroll is a vital function in every company, yet the vast majority of payroll personnel have no formal Payroll Qualifications.
Working in payroll is a varied, challenging and demanding career, but one that brings enormous job satisfaction, and little by little the role of payroll professionals is gaining the respect and the recognition that it truly deserves. Dealing with ever changing Revenue, Social Welfare and Employment Law legislation, working to strict deadlines, being proficient in the use of IT and dealing with a myriad of queries from employees and management alike, means that the role of payroll personnel is a highly demanding one, whether operating as a one person payroll department, or as a member of a payroll team in a large multinational.
