Accountancy Payroll Job Description: Skills And Attributes

As a Payroll professional, this individual will need to be able to multi-task, have excellent attention to detail, and be adept at working under pressure at certain times. 

The payroll role within an accountancy practice includes weekly and monthly payroll for multiple clients, which could be for hundreds of people. These people rely upon this money not only being accurately but promptly paid as agreed. 

For this reason, a Payroll professional must be both technically strong and have excellent communications skills, as this role is client-facing.

Technologically savvy, the Payroll person uses multiple systems to run clients’ payroll and spot and escalate any inaccuracies quickly.
