The Role

Our Customer Experience Delivery Teams are responsible for implementing the Employment Hero platform with customers, and our Project Managers are responsible for ensuring timely and successful implementations with our larger customers.

You will work with specialists from our HR and Payroll teams and with our off-shore Data Analysts to deliver great outcomes for our customers.

This role is challenging. Many of our customers are not experts in project management, technology or HR/Payroll, therefore you will need to be comfortable with managing many projects at any one time.

  • Ensure that issues are swiftly resolved.
  • Work with other professional services team members (Payroll, HR, Data Analysts) to ensure that tasks are completed to our high quality levels and in a timely manner.
  • Effective and efficient utilisation of resources.
  • Executing project management fundamentals and managing multiple projects at any one time.
  • Ensure the data in our business management systems (e.g. sales, support, project management, time tracking) is accurate and current.
  • Constantly review and improve our delivery processes


  • Bachelor's degree; business or commerce related degree preferable.
  • Project Management qualification is highly desirable.
  • Experience with HR and Payroll is highly desirable.
  • 3+ years project managing the delivery of SaaS implementations to small and medium sized business customers.
  • 3+ years managing a portfolio of projects (up to 50 at any one time).
  • Process innovation and improvement experience.
  • High level of written and verbal communication including stakeholder engagement and stakeholder management.
  • Effective and efficient utilisation of resources.
  • Strong time management and schedule management skills.
  • Attention to detail with exceptional risk management skills

  • We set you up for success with the latest and greatest hardware, tools and tech
  • Learning & development (including an external study policy, live monthly professional development classrooms, and premium online learning content!)
