The compensation team is responsible for the development and implementation of remuneration policies and practices, providing advice, guidance and support for all compensation activities across the business. This involves developing compensation policies; working closely with HR Business Partners; gathering market data on compensation trends; designing appropriate incentive arrangements; implementing the annual compensation review; and managing deferred award plans. The key functions of this role will be to identify, assess and implement opportunities for process improvement. You will be responsible for ensuring data and information is processed and reported on, including record keeping, reporting and system transactions, dealing with colleagues in Continental Europe, Asia, the US and Latin America, as well as the UK HQ. The outcomes for this role are for the successful candidate to be a subject matter expert on deferred compensation plans, including the application of the relevant plan rules, have responsibility for accurate and timely delivery of key deferred awards processes, for example daily processing to support the employee payment service, settling share-sale proceeds from deferred compensation awards for employees outside the UK and preparation of grant files.

As a result the business is looking to meet Share Plans Analysts or Reward Analysts who have gained experience supporting deferred award plans (ICSA Certificate in Employee Share Plans is an advantage).
