As part of our Central Services function, you’ll be taking on a newly created role as a standalone Payroll & Pensions Manager; responsible for the accurate processing of payroll and pensions administration for all 200+ employees. You’ll be updating and reviewing all payroll data, investigating pension errors, liaising with the finance team to process ad hoc payments, and managing the reimbursement of all expenses. You’ll benefit from the support of the wider Central Services team, with a HR Manager, Finance Manager and administrative support from an Office Administrator, where needed.

You’ll have evident experience in processing complex payroll data, preferably using Microsoft excel, so creating numerical formulae and manipulating data will be second nature to you. Multiple streams of incoming payroll data won’t phase you, from contract changes to overtime, expenses to professional indemnity reimbursement. You’ll have sound knowledge of statutory pension legislation and will relish the challenge of taking on the complexities of our NHS pension scheme.

You’ll need to have a methodical approach to pension administration, as there are often multiple workstreams to manage at any one time, including retirement applications, pension projections, annual update administration, and resolving historical pension errors. Time management will be key to ensuring the monthly payroll process is delivered effectively, by our deadline, alongside your other duties. You’ll be responsible for identifying and investigating pension queries and errors, utilising the expertise of our external Pension Support Advisors.

The ideal candidate will have experience with manual payroll processing and NHS pension administration, however, applications from candidates with strong payroll and pensions administration experience from other sectors are welcomed. As this will be a standalone role, you’ll need to have experience of being autonomous in the application of payroll services in your past experience and should have at least 3 years’ experience in processing payroll. In the future, we hope to bring our payroll in-house, so a confidence to take on this challenge is a must.

In return, you will enjoy membership of the coveted NHS pension scheme, as well as 25 days annual leave (pro rata), generous NHS employee discounts, wellbeing initiatives, free parking and more. After an initial training period of 6 weeks, this role could become hybrid.

What we can offer you!

  • 5 weeks holiday pro rata PLUS bank holidays
  • NHS pension scheme membership with a 14.38% employer contribution rate
  • Employee Wellbeing initiatives
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • Monthly employee award
  • Investment in developing your skills and progression opportunities, across the Partnership

To apply

  • Provide an up to date CV and a supporting cover letter detailing how you meet the requirements of the role
  • Applications should be e-mailed to
  • Closing date: Wednesday 24th May 2023
  • Interview date:  1st June 2023

Thank you for your interest and we look forward to hearing from you.

Managing Partner (Non-clinical)
