International Payroll Specialist

(32-38 hours per week) 
Action continues to grow and expand on the international playing field. As our new HR International Payroll Specialist, you will continuously support our current and future colleagues throughout this process. 

This is your daily action

As a Payroll Specialist you are responsible for providing the correct payroll input to our external payroll providers, perform the necessary controls on the payroll output, answer questions from our business partners and setting up/performing compliance controls. You are the main contact person for the local colleagues and the local payroll provider. You are able to help and assist with relevant topics and questions. 

You will mainly be working with our time registration software and our suite of HR tools. From here, you will gather all the relevant data, convert it to a workable format and perform the necessary control tasks. We are continuously improving our systems and processes, and you will be an integral part of this journey.

Meet your team

Action has grown so rapidly that we have set out to transform our old-fashioned HR department into a strategic ‘centre of excellence’. Within our department, Recruitment is responsible for recruiting new Action employees for our international headquarters and our Dutch country office. Compensation & Benefits is responsible for anything related to salary, bonuses, lease cars and other employment conditions. Learning & Development organises training courses for colleagues working at our stores and distribution centres. HR Projects develops various projects aimed at increasing the added value of our HR department to the Action organisation and our Shared Service Centre provides various services to our country offices including payrolling. Finally, each support department has its own HR advisor focused on employee recruitment, internal and external mobility and departures and acts as an interface between the departments and our overarching HR team. Do you want to contribute your ideas to help further the professionalisation of our HR organisation?
