Mitchell Charlesworth Payroll Division Goes from Strength to Strength

Mitchell Charlesworth is launching a targeted campaign to drive growth in the payroll sector after bolstering its division with three new recruits. The firm has invested in an experienced trio of senior payroll staff to help drive the 2013 initiative.

Samantha Burton, formerly of Ceridian, and Rizwan Sindhu, formerly of Logica, join the division as senior payroll clerks. Geraldine Taylor has also been employed to carry out payroll administration.

Mitchell Charlesworth Payroll Manager Joanne Nieman (pictured right) said the new additions would play a vital role in securing new business and driving growth. Key areas the division is targeting in 2013 include the health, construction and care home sectors.

"We are delighted to welcome the new recruits to our team," she said. "Together they bring a wealth of experience and skills to help further strengthen our payroll division. Samantha has more than a decade of experience working on major payroll accounts including national retail firms. Similarly, Rizwan brings a high level of expertise having worked across a broad range of sectors. Our third new recruit Geraldine has strong and valuable payroll administration skills from her time working with The Gauchwin Group.


Mitchell Charlesworth has been delivering a first class payroll service for more than 30 years. The last 12 months has seen formidable growth with client wins within the department rising past 700 for the first time. This growth is due to the fact payroll processes are becoming increasingly difficult and onerous, requiring expert attention. This latest move is a statement of our intent to continue building the division to capitalise on the growing demand for services."

The 11 strong-payroll team provides services across a broad number of areas including traditional tax, national insurance, holiday and statutory payments.  Others include the new Real Time Information (RTI) regime and Auto-Enrolment for Pensions.

"The construction industry remains a core focus area for business growth," said Mrs Nieman. "There are strict rules for all contractors making payments to sub-contractors. However, many firms fail to operate the scheme correctly resulting in harsh penalties from HMRC. We deliver specialised CIS (Construction Industry Scheme) services to ensure these issues are tackled head on. Moreover, we see great potential in the health sector, specifically doctor's surgeries, where issues including pensions and national insurance schemes are notoriously complicated. We have also seen rapid growth in the nursing home sector in which we have a depth of experience."
