Employee Benefits and International Payroll Support Administrator At Oxfam GB

Oxfam is a global movement of people working together to end the injustice of poverty.

Do you have proven administrative experience and good organisational skills?

Do you have the ability to work well under pressure within a very busy environment, using your own initiative and prioritise accordingly to meet deadlines?

Do you have clear and effective verbal/written communication, able to draft emails and work with reports?

If the answer is yes, then would like to hear from you.

The Role

As an Employee Benefits and International Payroll Support Administrator, you will assist with the life cycle of our international staff and their personnel records, including their pay and benefits.

You will also help our team with UK pension administration, and other benefits including medical/travel insurance and life assurance. You will be the main point of contact for our shared inboxes to assist local HR’s and international staff queries.

What we are looking for

We’re looking for a candidate who cares about Oxfam’s mission to end poverty and is personally aligned to the values of empowerment, accountability and inclusion in all you do and our feminist principles.

You will be a confident candidate with proven administrative experience who is comfortable with numbers and managing data/reports on Excel. You’ll be customer-focused and motivated to offer a high standard of service to Oxfam with excellent attention to detail. The ideal candidate will be comfortable working in a collaborative environment in supporting the EBIPS team.

We offer

This role will give you an opportunity to work with a group of social, friendly and passionate people for a charity that makes a real and lasting difference to the lives of millions of people around the world.

We offer great development and opportunities through various talks, courses, workshops, qualifications, on-the-job training and events. To help you continue to grow your passion and skill in HR, for qualifying and interested candidates, we may be able to offer an HR Apprenticeship as part of this role.


We believe that flexible working is key to building the Oxfam of the future, so we are open to talking through working arrangements (in terms of hours and homeworking) that might work for you, including job share. This role will be based in the location as stated above.

It’s people power that brings about change.

  • We need an inclusive Oxfam where everyone can bring who they are to our work and feels celebrated for the differences they bring.
  • We want and need everyone, and that means we need you.
