Employment Hero is an Australian SaaS start-up. Our platform is the easiest way for small to medium businesses to manage HR, payroll, employee engagement and benefits. We’re on a mission to make employment easier and more rewarding for everyone, whilst being a remote first workplace with global ambitions!

The Professional Services division is responsible for implementing the Employment Hero platform with customers, and our Payroll Trainers are responsible for gathering information, creating and delivering training to our customers to ensure they have the knowledge and skills required to proficiently operate and administer our payroll software.

You will work with Payroll Specialists and Project Managers to build training contents for our clients going through our Guided and Managed Implementation service.

This role is challenging. Many of our customers are not experts in payroll processing or legislative requirements. You will be managing many projects at any one time. Our platform and our business are constantly changing. To be successful, you will need to communicate effectively, influence stakeholders, prioritise tasks, and drive outcomes.

  • Constantly review and improve our delivery processes

  • We set you up for success with the latest and greatest hardware, tools and tech
  • Continuing education / post-graduate assistance program
  • Virtual yoga classes
  • Weekly virtual happy-hour and social events to get to know your new colleagues
