National Payroll Week - 6th September 2021

National Payroll Week was established in the UK by the CIPP in 1998 to celebrate the payroll profession and to give it the recognition it deserves.  Ingrid Foster, Payroll manager explains that Payroll is a profession people fall into rather than have ambitions to become! However, it’s a hugely important part of every business, with that in mind we hope you will join us in thanking the wonderful SOLO Payroll team this week who work hard to make sure everyone gets paid on time! 

Meet the team: 


I joined Solo 8 and a half years ago.  In this time the company has grown so much, and my role has changed too.  I am continually adapting and learning to lead the Payroll Team the best way I can. Legislation changes frequently and as a Member of CIPP I listen regularly to webinars and updates.  I look forward to being able to attend courses in person again one day.  I walk, run and Zumba for exercise and I am looking forward to travelling and weekend city breaks returning.


I will have been working for Solo for 4 years in November. I love being part of the payroll team, I enjoy every aspect of my role and especially enjoy processing payrolls.  I worked from home for a year during the Pandemic and I came back to the office in April and am so pleased to be back working with my amazing colleagues. I enjoy eating out and finding new restaurants to try. I love my holidays and can’t wait to get back on a plane!!!


I have been working at Solo for 4 and a half years and I really enjoy working here.  I love the variety of the job, working as a team and the people I work with are all lovely.  We are a great collection of caring people; we are all different but we all get on because we are helping people. I enjoy going out with friends, eating out, going to the cinema and spending time at home in my pyjamas! There are lots of webinars regarding payroll that we have the change to listen to so we can keep updated with any changes.


I have worked at Solo for 5 years. I love being part of the payroll team and I enjoy processing a variety of payrolls and answering any queries, whilst also continuing to learn some new things myself. In my spare time I enjoy crocheting and spending time with family and friends. I have attended a number of HMRC and CIPP webinars in order to keep up to date with the current payroll legislation.


I love working at Solo, everyone is so friendly, willing to help and we have lots of fun every day.  I have learned a lot from them.  I enjoy processing payrolls, putting in all the information and making sure the numbers match correctly ! I have recently completed my CIPP Payroll Technician course which has given me a more in-depth understanding of all the elements of payroll. I love exploring new restaurants.  I also like to stay in and watch Disney movies with a big cup of hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows!


Working in the payroll team is really fulfilling, you always learn something new and the people in the team make it a joy to be at work every day. I have worked in payroll for 5 years and have achieved my CIPP advanced payroll technician course in this time. I keep up to date with the ever-changing legislation by attending training webinars and courses. In my spare time I enjoy going for days out and food with friends and family.
