Downer has been designing, building and sustaining New Zealand’s infrastructure for over a century and is a leading provider of integrated services in Australia and New Zealand.

With over 12,000 employees in New Zealand, we work alongside some of New Zealand’s biggest businesses, councils and government agencies.

Downer New Zealand is a leading provider of integrated services. Our commitment to building long term relationships and supporting our customers with high calibre services and solutions; the talents of our people; and consistent excellence in operational delivery sets us apart.

Due to the increased workload, our Business Services (BSC) team is now looking for a high-performing graduate payroll administrator to join their friendly and efficient team into this entry-level role. Located at our Head Office in Manukau, the BSC team is an integral part of the Downer business and is responsible for managing multi-functional payroll, finance and accounting procedures for our operations teams across the country.

What’s in it for you
challenging yet rewarding, this is an outstanding opportunity to work in a diverse business and be part of a great team thriving in a collaborative fast-paced environment. You’ll be:

  • Able to work with a large network of internal and stakeholders and get exposure to different parts of the Downer business.
  • Part of a fun, friendly and supportive team with a strong mentor
  • Free onsite parking

The role

The BSC team manages the entirety of accounts payable, accounts receivable, fixed assets, payroll, and a multitude of accounting tasks that are focused on creating efficient processes and effective solutions for the day-to-day running of the business. Reporting to the Payroll Manager, the role will see you working within the payroll team and liaising with a wide range of internal and external stakeholders. Along with these, you’ll also:

  • Liaise with depot administrators across the country to receive timesheets in a timely manner
  • Process fortnightly and monthly pay run and assist employees with any pay-related queries
  • Be responsible for award interpretations (calculating overtime, allowances, referrals etc.)
  • Help the team leader with monthly reportings

About you

The role offers responsibility and autonomy, so it goes without saying that you must be highly organised, self-motivated and be able to work independently. There’ll be multiple deadlines and cut-offs to meet in a month, hence it is a must for you to be deadline-focussed and have spectacular time-management skills with meticulous attention to detail. You’ll also bring with you:

  • High level of proficiency in MS Office suite particularly Excel and Word.
  • Strong interpersonal skills and confidence in building and maintaining relationships at all levels
  • Love for numbers with a problem-solving attitude and analytical thinking
  • A keen desire to learn and grow

You’ll be joining an inclusive and collaborative team where people are supported to be the best versions of themselves. The team loves a good morning tea, so a team player attitude is a must.
