The South Carolina State University Controller's Office is seeking to hire a dynamic Director of Payroll to join our team.

The Payroll Director must be able to create suitable financial strategies for the continuous improvement of payroll systems, possess excellent managerial skills, and have the ability to supervise personnel working on payroll procedures.  The position will oversee the day-to-day payroll function for employees across South Carolina State University using multiple systems for payroll operations and retirement contribution submissions and reporting, while also ensuring compliance with wage and hourly regulatory reporting requirements. The successful candidate will attend to payroll-related questions from employees and ensure the best financial practices are adhered to by payroll operations team members.
