Official Title: PAY & BEN SPECIALIST ADVANCED(21312)
Hiring Department: A190500-COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING/OPERATIONS/BUS SERVICES
Term: This is an Ongoing appointment
This position will have a primary connection between the College of Engineering and Departments and will be reassigned as needed to serve other departments. This position is responsible for initiating and processing payroll and related operations in the College of Engineering in support of its instructional, research and service missions. There are different rules and regulations to be followed for each different appointment type. The College has a variety of funding sources, many from Federal and non-Federal grants and awards. This requires constantly changing funding commitments to be made on the various appointments. Funding periods may vary and include grant funding periods that don't necessarily coincide with the fiscal year funding, complicating the payroll process.
In the role of benefits coordinator, this position supplies benefit information to different classes of employees, each with a unique set of benefits. This is made even more complicated by continuous changes such as leave of absence, sabbaticals, appointment percent level, and appointment type. The impact of supplying incomplete or insufficient information could result in an individual not being eligible or losing critical benefits.
This position drafts appointment letters and processes visas for Visiting Scholars and Post Docs and serves as back-up to the CHRIS and PVL system.
The individual must be able to manage multiple, multi-faceted, detailed responsibilities ranging from day-to-day to extremely detailed activities. A strong knowledge of UW payroll, visa process, and benefits procedures are required.
7:45 A.M. - 4:30 P.M., Monday through Friday., some flexibility may be considered.
