Senior Payroll Specialist

SAP, HR Technology, some experience, internal role

Nothing gets you as excited as numbers, accuracy and tight deadlines. Your analytical mind acquires insight in new and complex matters easily and your strong problem-solving skills ensure you always look for process and system improvement. You have a hands-on mentality and a can-do attitude – once you sink your teeth into something, you won’t let go until it’s a done deal.

Payroll processing holds no secrets for you, and you consider simulating net salaries child’s play. You’re up to speed on the changes in Belgian and European tax law and social legislation. As a true payroll specialist, you attach great importance to accurate and timely payroll. That’s exactly why you’re both detail- and goal-oriented.

Who are we?

We are the delaware HR team: a close-knit group of about 36 HR professionals. You can find us in the different delaware offices in Kortrijk, Ghent, Antwerp, Lummen, Liège, Wavre and Luxembourg. With more than 1,600 colleagues in Belgium and Luxembourg alone, you can imagine that every one of them has different needs and expectations when it comes to HR. They come to us with a broad variety of questions on compensation, tax, benefits and social security.

Add to this a dose of ever-changing employment legislation and the challenges that come with reward management, and you immediately get why we need a Senior Payroll Specialist with extensive knowledge on these topics and trends. Don’t worry, you won’t have to do this on your own – you can count on the support of experienced HR colleagues!

What will you be doing?

You’ll be working closely together with your colleagues to prepare and execute all payroll. By the way, we’ll train you the ins and outs of special rewards, such as warrants, bonus plans and payroll costing. At all times, you ensure data quality and maintain and improve tools, systems, interfaces and platforms. By analyzing and leveraging data, you help improve and sustain a competitive reward strategy. 

What’s more, you’ll be our point of contact for payroll and compensation & benefits matters that require specific expertise and you keep a close eye on any changes in local legislation. As such, you put your expertise to good use in conversations with internal stakeholders and you answer questions about split payrolls, taxes, intellectual property rights, and many more.

Is there a match?

Let’s see. If you…

  • have at least 5 years of payroll experience, preferably within a larger organization.
  • have a strong background in payroll and compensation & benefits.
  • are familiar with eBlox or other payroll tools for GOs and your Excel knowledge goes beyond v-look up (although that’s a good start 😉).
  • always strive for executional excellence, are pragmatic, good with numbers and have a strong analytical mind.
  • are fluent in Dutch or French and have a very good command of English.
  • would like to sink your teeth into new payroll & compensation projects. These projects can be strategic or operational – just tell us what you’re passionate about!


…then you may be the Senior Payroll Specialist we’re looking for!
