The People Services team is the backbone of our HR team. As a People Services Specialist Payroll and C&B (this is how we call it!) you are responsible for a meticulous salary run each month. In addition you support our Total Rewards Manager in analyses and projects with regards to compensation and benefits.
You can consider it your personal mission to:
Make sure our A-players get the right salary exactly on time! You will be our ‘payroll’ guru and give the HR team the confidence they can rely on you in getting the well deserved salary at our A-players. In addition you are the right hand of our Total Rewards manager and together you develop our reward philosophy and bring it to life in day-to-day work.
As a People Services Specialist Payroll and C&B you will have the following tasks and responsibilities:
A day as an People Services Specialist Payroll and C&B
Let's start by saying Lightyear is very flexible in terms of your working hours, we offer near-full remote working with any office equipment we need to work ergonomically (and a work-at-home budget to upgrade your internet). If needed, or desired, you can spend your working time at our modern office at the Automotive Campus close to Helmond (travel allowance included). Here you can enjoy a good cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate, fresh fruit and experience the buzz of the office and the labs/workshops.
So, let's assume it's Friday, you chose to come to our office and the first thing you do is grab your favourite wake-up drink before rolling into your first task of the day:
You start the day with some informal conversations with fellow A-players at our office. Next you have blocked time to finalize the data for the monthly payroll. Together with one of our HR administrators you do a final check before finalizing everything in Nmbrs. Before lunch you have a meeting with our Total Rewards Manager to discuss if we need to do additional benchmarking for some of our engineering roles.
And then you decide: it’s time for lunch!
You decided to go for a walk together with a few colleagues, because the weather is perfect today (the sun is ALWAYS shining in Helmond of course!). During walks like these, it's not all about work. You talk about when you will go mountain biking together or about what you have planned for the upcoming weekend.
In the afternoon you answer questions of employees and leads that have reached us through our ticketing system. And before starting the weekend you meet with some of your HR colleagues to discuss how to improve the process of job plotting, as currently this is sometimes a bottleneck in getting timely salary information for new roles in our fast growing organization.
Then, it's finally time for your well-deserved Friday afternoon drink or you participate in one of the fun activities our happiness team comes up with!
