What you'll do

Do you love working with payroll? And are you enthusiastic about providing excellent service to our store colleagues in a fun and dynamic environment?

Then we would be happy to see you apply for the position as Payroll Administrator in our Swedish support office in Gothenburg.


It has been an incredible journey from our humble beginnings to where we are now. Along the way, we have actively sought out challenges to bring us closer to our ambition: to bring accessible healthcare to the high street.

Today, Specsavers is the world's largest private optical retailer, operating in more than 10 countries and providing eye and hearing care to over 38 million customers globally, together with more than 37,000 employees at our stores and support offices.

Our optical stores in Sweden are supported by our Shared Service Centre (FAS), in which controllers, accountants and payroll administrators work together to provide a number of services that help our Store Partners in the day-to-day running of their stores.

What you'll do
As a Payroll Administrator, you will be responsible for handling end-to-end payroll administration for approximately 15-17 stores. Next to payroll, you will also be responsible for supporting all stores that are part of FAS with basic labour law.

It's only recently that we decided to take our payroll function in Sweden in-house. So, when you join us, you will become the fifth member of a whole new team with three payroll admins and one team lead.

In this team, your key responsibilities will be to:
  • Process the payroll administration in Hogia Lön according to our collective agreements (Handels, Unionen and SRAT)
  • Manage time reports, travel expenses, holidays, statistics, insurance, and pensions
  • Support the financial department with monthly/yearly closing procedures
  • Manage the delivery of tax filing and payment by preparing files for payment and ensuring that all relevant documentation is kept up to date
  • Be the first point of contact for all operational payroll related questions from Store Partners and colleagues, Regional Relationship Managers, Accountants, Controllers, the HR team etc.
  • Manage employee benefits, employer's certificates, and work certificates.
Who you are

We are looking for a Payroll Administrator, who has gained experience from working with payroll systems and pre-systems (preferably Hogia Lön and/or Quinyx), and who is knowledgeable about the Swedish labour law. We need someone with a structured mindset, being very attentive to details and always delivering high quality. On the other hand, you should also be a proactive person with the ability to take ownership of solving problems and finding the right solutions. This also requires an analytic/mathematic mind since you need to be able to understand errors to improve them. And finally, you need to be confident and service-minded towards our Store Partners, to relieve them from additional pressure by supporting them through a can-do attitude.

Other than that, you should be able to accommodate the following qualifications:
  • Obtained education in payroll administration from University/KY/YH
  • Minimum of 2 years vocational experience within payroll
  • Fluently in Swedish
  • Having worked with payroll administration in a Swedish Retail business is an advantage, but not a must
What's in it for you?

At Specsavers, we promise you a highly dynamic workplace and a company that is growing at a high pace. Recently voted the top European retailer by Great Place to Work 2020, Specsavers is constantly progressing and very passionate about being the best in everything we do.

As our new Payroll Administrator, you will be working together with our talented and fun-loving colleagues in the FAS payroll team. The wide variety of job tasks within payroll, and the possibility to support our Store Partners with new structures, processes, and systems in the day-to-day running of their stores, are what makes this job exciting.

On top of that, we offer all kinds of employee perks, such as:
  • Join a smart, passionate, and confident team with colleagues from many nationalities
  • Great training and development opportunities, where no two days will be the same in our changing matrix environment
  • An informal, supportive, and fast-moving environment with little bureaucracy
  • Great coffee, lots of laughs, regular birthday and Christmas treats, social events and much more
  • A salary package matching your qualifications with a pension scheme and other staff benefits
  • Be part of a business which serves a major impact on the future of eye and hearing care.
