1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:

8/10

My title is Payroll Consultant, this involves helping the client and employees with queries regarding pay. I also input data into the payroll, for example court orders and P45s. Pay day is always the busiest day of the month whereby I help employees with their pay queries or any tax issues, how tax is calculated. It keeps me up to date with the latest legislation and I can pass this on to others.

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?

9/10

I have learnt how to use a Bespoke payroll system on a day to day basis, I have further developed my customer service skills and I will gain a Level 2 in payroll when I have finished my course.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
