The Role

As part of our growing HR department, the Payroll team is responsible for over 9,000 Clarks’ people, in 23 different countries. Joining us, you’ll bring your payroll experience to a supportive, dedicated and very friendly HR team in an iconic, internationally successful and ever-expanding business with ambitious growth plans. You’ll be involved in SAP related payroll processes to ensure that all of our people get paid accurately and on time. It’s a big task with lots of responsibility but don’t worry, you won’t be on your own. You’ll be part of a small, friendly team and work closely with them to ensure that processes are effective, up-to-date and internationally compliant. We want our payroll service to be world-class, just like our shoes – that’s where you come in.

A bit about you

You’ll have proven experience working within a payroll environment, specifically with an understanding of statutory payment and deduction processing and the handling of sensitive data. Strong IT skills including SAP Payroll means you’re equipped to handle our systems. You’ll have a good understanding of payroll principles relating to the calculation of up to gross and gross to net. If you’ve worked with RTI, Pension Autoenrollment and salary sacrifice, that’d be even better. Ideally CIPP qualified or part qualified, you’ll also be well-organised, detail conscious, and comfortable working at pace to strict deadlines. You understand the importance of payroll to a global organisation and you’ll use your skills and expertise to maintain our reputation for international excellence.

Life with us

Every year, over 46 million pairs of Clarks shoes are sold globally. That makes us a £1.5 billion business and a truly worldwide brand. We now have some 12,000 employees across 75 different countries – everywhere from Europe to the Americas. Despite being the world’s leading global casual footwear brand, we’re still majority owned by the Clark family and based in Street, Somerset – where the Clarks business began. Street is the nerve centre of our business, driving growth and the whole Clarks success story.

The benefits

As well as development opportunities, pension and a competitive salary, you’ll also enjoy a variety of benefits. These range from 25 days’ holiday (plus bank holidays) to discounted healthcare. And, as everyone loves new shoes, you’ll also get a very healthy discount on our products.

We love hearing from great people
