Of course, career paths can vary greatly, but it seems logical that those who do become a top-level Payroll Manager, in whatever size organisation, share something in common. Here we look at these common characteristics to identify what it takes to be a Payroll Manager. We surveyed 430 Payroll Managers and conducted in-depth interviews with two employers and one Payroll Manager. We are very grateful to them for their time. From qualifications and experience to personal development and work/life balance, our report gives you an insight into what it takes to make the top job in payroll. If you are considering your career options and want to become a leader in the payroll industry, our report will give you an insight into what it takes. And if you are already a Payroll Manager, or well on your way to becoming one, we hope you find what your peer group have to say about success to be interesting and engaging.
