Hi ICB Network!

We are looking to fill the below position - please pass on to anyone you know who would potentially suit. The role is for an employee and needs to be local because they are required onsite (Boondall & Stafford Qld Areas).

Wishing you a wonderful holiday season all!


We are on the look out for a Payroll Officer to join our existing team in a bookkeeping firm located on Brisbane’s northside. Our firm provides full-service payroll, bookkeeping and management accounting to a range of small business clients. The successful applicant will be joining a current team of 7 permanent staff.

This role will start at 10 hours per week permanent - casual with a view to expanding work if and when suitable. The applicant may be required to visit one or more places of work – always within the Stafford – Boondall areas. Work and training are required in-person (remote work is not suitable for this position).

This position is required beginning in February 2020. The position will be for days that align with client payrolls and would potentially suit a person with school-age children. As the days are specific (Wed/Thursday) it is unlikely to suit university students.

  • the ability to interpret a variety of Awards and Agreements across several industries
  • sound knowledge of payroll legislation across all states and territories
