Payroll Support Consultant

What is your role at Fusion5?

I am a Payroll Support Consultant / Payroll Consultant for PayGlobal, Jade Star and TimeFiler.

I currently manage and investigate the iHelp requests for PayGlobal and TimeFiler we receive from our clients, I complete the Jade Star testing for clients and test the updates within the system, and I am also learning how to become a Payroll Consultant for PayGlobal, Jade Star and TimeFiler.

I wear many Fusion5 hats.


What attracted you to Fusion5?

After 10 years of processing Payroll for various industries here in New Zealand and In Australia, I felt like I needed a change, but I still wanted to use my Payroll knowledge. Fusion5 offers such great business solutions and I thought it was the perfect place to begin my career learning more about becoming a Payroll Consultant.


What are you working on?

Currently I am the Lead Consultant on a Leave remediation project whilst multitasking Jade Star testing and being the first port of call for the iHelps that come through for our PayGlobal clients.


What makes a ‘good day’?

I usually like to start the morning at the gym or on my yoga mat, followed by my morning coffee.

It is always a good day when I can cross items off my ‘to do’ list and move on to the next item.

I feel lucky working in a such a beautiful city, so I always try and get a lunchtime walk in along the waterfront.


What are you famous for?

Always smiling, I try to keep positive and make the most out of my days. 


What do you get up to outside of work?

I like to keep active outdoors mainly, I absolutely love hiking and to travel. Wellington has such great eateries and breweries which is where you can often find me in the weekends.


Great outcomes start with great conversations
