About the role
Octopus are an ambitious, high growth organisation whose goal is to attract and retain high performance and diverse talent across the group. Our aim is to support and promote a best-in-class Employee Value Proposition (EVP) that differentiates Octopus in the market, contributes to employee engagement and supports a high performance culture.

The role will support the delivery of cyclical reward processes like annual pay reviews, benefits sign up, and projects including the selection of third party suppliers, paperless process improvement, job evaluation, grading processes and any other reward related programs.
A key focus of this role is coordinating monthly payroll and pension processes with our third-party providers, requiring data manipulation skills and a strong eye for detail. They will be an internal contact point for manager and employee queries about payroll and benefit issues, answering queries by email, face to face and by phone, and escalating as appropriate.
All roles within the HR team, including the Rewards Analyst, are highly visible roles across the company with the expectation that you will champion HR and help build the profile of the function across the company. Alongside colleagues in HR, the Rewards Analyst is responsible for championing initiatives that deepen the Octopus culture.
