Are you a talented and experienced payroll advisor with a keen eye for detail, and the drive to progress your career within a successful retail organisation? If so, then LloydsPharmacy & Celesio UK want to hear from you!

Payroll Coordinator (Permanent and Contract Opportunities Available)

37.5 hours/Contract until June 2017

££ Competitive

Coventry, CV2

Celesio UK, a pioneering provider of integrated healthcare services (and parent company of LloydsPharmacy!!) have an exciting opportunity for a Payroll Coordinator to join our HR function on a fixed term/Perm basis.

Based at our recently renovated Support Centre at Walsgrave Triangle in Coventry, this role will report directly to the Payroll Manager, and will be responsible for ensuring that the Celesio UK payroll and supporting documentation are processed accurately and on time into the payroll system, and to provide payroll advice and support to all Celesio UK employees with all matters relating to pay by telephone and email.

Overview of the role:

The successful candidate will have significant responsibility within a team of experienced payroll professionals to control and wholly manage payroll queries and resolutions.

You will respond to queries from colleagues across various departments within the business, therefore strong communication skills are required to be really successful in this role. You will continuously work to high volumes and tight deadlines, ensuring business controls and processes are in place and followed at all times. That being said, it’s a very supportive and fun team, who really pitch in and help each other out, so we’re really keen on people who will thrive in this kind of team environment.


To be successful in this role, we really do need the right candidate to have demonstrative payroll experience within a similar sized organisation. Ideally you will have experience in a Retail environment where you have had responsibility for payroll across a retail branch network. You will be managing a high volume workload so the ability to prioritise and set colleague expectations will be really important. You will also need to work effectively and autonomously whilst supporting your colleagues with team initiatives and goals.

If you have had experience of using Northgate or iTrent payroll systems, that’s an added bonus! But we are equally happy to consider experience with other similar systems.

And a CIPPM Qualification would be a distinct advantage for this position.

What can Celesio UK offer you?

With unparalleled opportunities within the organisation for career development, and fantastic exposure across our business to a vast array of different career paths, it’s a really exciting time to join our business.

We realise that our employees are key to our success as a business and integrated healthcare provider for our customers and patients, so you can expect a creative and supportive environment where your skills and talent will be nurtured to their full potential. The more you achieve, the more we do!

For this reason it’s no wonder Celesio UK were nominated a Top UK Employer for 2014.

You can expect dress down Friday, lots of bake sales and plenty of charitable happenings around the office.

You will find a culture where we are as caring and committed to our employees as we are to our customer and patients.

We are looking for colleagues who share our passion for innovation and caring for people, who can help us to shape the future of healthcare and meet the constantly changing needs of our customers.
