Payroll, Compensation & Benefits Administrator

Your mission will be based on two pillars - each equally important:

Payroll: You’ll be accountable for all things payroll-related across all Labster entities. We’re working with great payroll partners so most processes are plug and play, however, you will contribute towards optimized processes, smooth internal collaborations as well as being the main point of contact for all payroll requests. This also includes filings related to payroll and e.g. leave and/or vacation days.

Compensation & Benefits Specialist: You will contribute to the development of operational policies and procedures concerning the classification of employees, compensation, employee relations, and benefit programs. This includes the continuous improvement of our benefits from both a local and global perspective while ensuring a fair and holistic approach.

To make all ends meet, you’ll work closely with the remaining People Operations team as well as the overall People team; this includes Talent Acquisition, People Partners, Internal Communications & Employer Branding. We’re a team that values close collaboration and actively appreciates each others’ expertise.

What you’ll be doing

  • Run payroll and benefits, ensuring that transactions are delivered on time and in accordance with local regulations, policies, and procedures
  • Review payroll reports for accuracy and makes adjustments as necessary
  • Act as Labster’s point of contact for all international payroll partners
