Jodie Bowe, candidate manager at NSTR, explores the reasons why a payroll career is the best option for starting a career or new challenge.


In a constantly expanding market, there are always opportunities to embark on a career in payroll. With various opportunities to join international companies and work in amazing teams or businesses offering stand-alone positions. Whilst some businesses offer outsourced payroll, others offer in house or umbrella opportunities.

In payroll, you’re never stood still, there are always progression opportunities! With perseverance and resilience, you have the chance to gain new qualifications such as CIPP, which incorporates Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees; your options are never limited. As in most career paths, qualifications means career progression, from Payroll Administrators to Heads of Payroll or Payroll Directors. Career progression also means significant salary increases! The perfect choice to start your career or a new challenge.

Effectively, payroll is the heart and soul of any organisation. Payrollers, are essentially responsible for making sure employees or clients are paid correctly and on time. An attention to detail is key, when working within payroll. Payroll teams are crucial parts to any business because everyone needs to be paid! Whilst payroll is a fast-paced environment it is also an extremely fulfilling role.

Here at NSTR we have various payroll vacancies at a number of levels open across the North West. If you are interested in hearing about new opportunities, please get in touch with one of our experienced consultants.
