Cpl Resources plc is Ireland’s largest recruitment agency and a global provider of staffing, recruitment, training and outsourcing services. Founded in 1989 by CEO, Anne Heraty, Cpl now have 750 staff working across more than 40 offices in 10 countries. Cpl is listed on the ESM in Dublin and AIM in London. We promote an empowering, entrepreneurial culture.
Reporting to the CFO, the Senior Manager Shared Services is responsible for managing 40 staff (five direct reports) across the four functional areas: external payroll, invoicing, collections and accounts payable. It is a fast paced, high volume environment. Each month we pay 6,500 workers across 15 payrolls (weekly, fortnightly and monthly), process 10,000 invoices and collection in excess of €40m in cash.
The four functions have historically operated as standalone units. However following recent upgrades of our IT systems, the invoicing function is largely automated and heavily reliant on payroll inputs. Therefore greater alignment between the functions will be required and the successful candidate will play a leading role in achieving this. Working capital optimisation will also be a key focus.
Cpl has expanded at an impressive rate with no plans to slow down. This role offers the opportunity to gain post acquisition integration experience as we acquire and merge with recruitment agencies in Ireland and overseas.
This is a unique opportunity to make the role your own, this is a hugely autonomous and key role in the group – you will be able to put your own stamp and style to improve processes and procedures and broaden your experience into other areas of the business.
