The recent opening marks activpayroll’s first office in Ireland and will be an invaluable addition to the firm’s current EMEA offering which boasts eight other offices in the region. The new entity has been established to provide dedicated in-country support to existing and new Irish customers, in addition to supporting the wider international clientele with Irish-based employees.
The firm has been providing payroll services to customers in Ireland since launching two decades ago and this latest office addition highlights the growing need to have in-country teams to help with the increased demand for activpayroll services around the globe. In addition to its primary payroll service, the Irish team will also offer customers specialist Global Mobility and Global HR support.
Activpayroll’s new team will be led by Paul Shelley, Payroll Operations Manager – Ireland. Paul has over 24 years’ experience working in the payroll sector and has held multiple leadership roles throughout his career, both in-house and as part of the outsourcing sector. Having worked for small and large global organisations across Ireland, Paul’s experience encompasses payroll operations, implementations, consultancy, ISAE and customer relations.
Alison Sellar, founder and CEO of activpayroll, said: "It’s a very exciting time for us all and we are delighted to have Paul on-board to help us start growing our office in the Irish capital. An entity in Ireland has been on the cards for quite some time and it’s great to see it finally come to fruition. We’re proud to service a number of renowned, global brands and our office in Dublin means that we can continue to deliver our industry-leading expertise on an even greater scale.”
Paul Shelley, Payroll Operations Manager - Ireland, added: “I am really pleased to be joining the team and being part of a company that is so highly regarded in the payroll industry. For me, it’s all about working with our customers, both existing and new, growing the business and having a great team who can offer the best service possible. It’s going to be a busy time ahead building a knowledgeable and dependable team to service the Irish market, but one I’m very much looking forward to.”
