Payroll Admin - Sweden

At Polestar, we are not afraid to be bold to align with our sustainable mission to improve the society we live in, but in the HR Operations team we take pride in sometimes going unnoticed.


Let us describe the challenge we offer

We are an energized small team full of service minded people that are passionate about administration and organization. Here, you will find that there are no clear-cut boundaries between our roles. Instead, you will have the chance to develop yourself and your skills in the ignitive phase Polestar is currently in.

Our current Payroll Administrator will be on parental leave from January 2022 – We are therefore looking for a payroll star as a replacement during the fixed period who will start as soon as possible.

This is a full-time temporary position for one year located at our HQ in Gothenburg.


What you’ll do

In this role, you will do the administration related to each month’s payroll run for the two legal entities in Sweden, in interaction with our payroll vendor. With an eye for refinement, you will identify and suggest and implement process- and system improvements to secure accuracy and quality. You will also be supporting in payroll related reporting, audits and yearly projects as well as do administration related to pension, insurances and benefits suppliers and systems.

Further, you will:

  • Be the main point of contact for Swedish payroll, which means interfacing with payroll provider, employees, HR-colleagues, finance, and external parties (i.e., mobility, pension, authorities)
  • Document and evolve instructions and processes to payroll related questions to build an effective communication towards our employees and organization

In addition to your main responsibilities, you will support the people administration in Workday and the continuous improvements within HR Operations as well as assisting projects with other HR colleagues, for example in Compensation & Benefits.


Who you are

We are eagerly looking for you who have a true passion for working in a structured way with this type of administration which require a great attention to detail and accuracy. Since you will be alone in your role, taking great responsibility comes natural to you. Also, you have a fantastic ability of independently driving your own tasks and prioritize, in close collaboration with internal and external parties. To be a great fit for this position, you are eager to learn new things and constantly trying to improve with the goal of providing the best of our company and its employees.

Further on, we believe you to have:

  • A bachelor’s degree in either payroll, economics, or equivalent.
  • Have a high level of integrity – understanding the high demands on confidentiality and data security and accuracy in relation to payroll is essential
  • A few years' of experience from payroll processing (hands-on or outsourced), preferably from a company with the collective agreement Teknikavtalet

It’s beneficial if you have experience from working in Workday HR System.

At Polestar, you will be part of a cross-functional and international team, where English is just as common as Swedish in daily written and spoken communication.
