Payroll Administrator
Hawke's Bay Hawke's Bay New Zealand
Full Time
Johnny Appleseed Ltd

Johnny Appleseed is an integrated grower, packer and marketer of pip fruit and stone fruit. The business started in the early 1900's when the Paynter family moved their growing business to the sunny Hawke's Bay. Five generations later, the Paynters are still growing apples and stone fruit on the family orchards in Havelock North, Hawke's Bay.

Our office is run out of the old family homestead in Havelock North. We have over 700 hectares of apple and stone fruit orchards, and a full-time staff of over 100, and up to 600 seasonal workers. We run our very own pack house where we pack Yummy fruit.

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for an experienced Payroll Administrator to join our team.  This role is varied and fast paced, reporting to the Financial Controller, who is looking for the perfect fit who can autonomously work to payroll and contract deadlines. Your main responsibilities are to manage weekly payrolls, payroll tax and weekly account reconciliations as well as assist staff with the weekly rosters. The payrolls vary in size depending on the season with the high-season managing 600 weekly pays and the low season managing 300 weekly pays.

The person we are looking for must have a passion for payroll, along with a thorough understanding of legislation related to payroll; such as leave calculation, ACC, WINZ and the like. An understanding of IMS is an advantage but not preferred as we will be switching to Zambion.  Part of your role is to be back-up for the HR Coordinator when on leave.

The successful applicant will have:

  • End to end preparation and processing of the payroll
  • Updating and maintaining staff records
  • Preparing and reconciling payments
  • Payroll reporting
  • Analytical and attention to detail
  • Processing IRD, ACC & Kiwisaver payments
  • Answering staff payroll queries
  • Computer literate
