Bring your extensive payroll and superannuation expertise, agility and proactive attitude to the University’s Payroll team.

We are a new world university. Like our namesake, Charles Darwin, we think differently. We innovate, embrace change, challenge conventions and look for better ways. We’re not about tradition or legacy, privilege or exclusivity. We care about people as individuals, and about our wider society. We’re about what we can give to the world, rather than what we take. We cannot build a new world without diversity of thought, so we bring together people with unique perspectives in an inclusive and supporting learning environment to help them connect, discover and grow. This is the CDU difference.

As Payroll Consultant, you form part of a small team of dedicated payroll professionals responsible for the end to end payroll processing of approximately 1,400 employees fortnightly, calculation of terminations, processing of third party payments including; superannuation, payroll tax, workers compensation and liaising with internal and external stakeholders to provide advice on employment entitlements and conditions. This role requires a specific skill set, and intimate knowledge and experience with superannuation legislation in particular.

The ability to provide professional, and customer focused service, with a talent for organising and prioritising workloads with minimal supervision to meet regular and conflicting deadlines under pressure will prove invaluable in this role.

To be successful, you require a relevant tertiary qualification in Business and/or Cert IV in Payroll Administration or extensive experience as a payroll consultant in a large organisation, ideally specialising in superannuation. A capacity to interpret legislation and enterprise agreements as well as demonstrated experience using financial/HR information systems such as Ascender Pay (Alesco), Oracle Financials and superannuation payment systems and advanced proficiency in Excel is essential. Experience with Oracle HRIS will be highly regarded.
