Payroll & HR Services

School payroll and HR tasks can be notoriously complex — but it doesn’t have to be this way

Our area of expertise is vast and ever expanding because of our detailed understanding of Schools.

Payroll in schools is notoriously complex – teaching awards, non-teaching staff awards, enterprise agreements, overtime, penalty rates… it all adds up.

It’s no surprise that school professionals around Australia become skittish when you start discussing payroll and HR. From navigating teaching awards and non-teaching awards to understanding enterprise agreements, following school procedures can be incredibly complicated — and that’s before you start adding in penalty rates and overtime!

You need the right team to understand all the complexities of processing your school’s payroll and managing HR, from using school-specific software to calculating leave entitlements. If you’re struggling to find and recruit the right HR and payroll officers at your school, we can help.

Outsourcing your school payroll

It may surprise you that outsourcing school payroll and HR operations is often cheaper than employing a full-time employee. The outsourced professional is skilled at performing the complex tasks required and can batch them and execute them much faster than an in-house employee. Additionally, they are often already familiar with your school payroll software and can get to work straight away.

Finally, you won’t need to account for leave (training another employee to handle payroll while the primary officer is away) or worry about staff leaving and taking all of the knowledge with them when they go.
