Meet the Team – Lewis Gosling, Senior Payroll Coordinator
Getting our contractors paid on time, every time is our “raison d’être” and the key to what we do at Liquid Friday. This month Lewis Gosling, Senior Payroll Coordinator, talks about the role he plays in ensuring the smooth running of payroll for thousands of workers every week.
How long have you been at Liquid Friday?
5 years – this week!
Tell us a bit about your role
I started out as an apprentice expenses coordinator then after 18 months joined the payroll team as a junior. I have since worked my way up to Senior Payroll Coordinator. In my current role I am responsible for a portfolio of clients with regards to receiving and inputting timesheets, raising invoices, reconciling client payments and preparing payment files.
In your view, what makes Liquid Friday stand out from the competition?
Quite simply, we don’t use jargon and try to make things as easy to understand as possible for everyone. Apart from that, I think what sets us apart is the team. We are like a family in the office; we all get on well and everyone, no matter of seniority, is approachable. It means we’re always working together to give our clients a positive experience.
In your view, how are things for contractors out there at the moment?
Many contractors were hit by a drop in income after the SDC rules came in back in April. However there is still the demand for temp workers and we’ve found that many are pleased that we constantly try to ensure that our clients are getting maximum benefit. This is more than just take home pay but things like helping our self employed workers with their tax returns and the employee benefits that are available through Perkbox.
What do you enjoy most about working at Liquid Friday?
As I previously said, what I enjoy most is the people. Also the view from the office is a massive bonus.
What do you do for fun / outside the office?
I have a season ticket for Pompey so my weekends very rarely don’t include football! I have also just got onto the property ladder by purchasing my first flat and have just moved in after a few months doing renovations.
