For our Global Transaction Center (GTC) in Berlin, we are looking for a Specialist Payroll for Germany as soon as possible. The position is full-time and initially limited to 2 years. If you are interested in working independently and service-oriented and if you have already demonstrated that you are self-motivated, a team player and flexible, we look forward to getting to know you soon.

Your "customers" are your colleagues at KWS and it is therefore important to you that they can rely on a correct and timely payroll, that problems are solved fast and questions are answered quickly.

You are fluent in German. As our team is very international, a basic level of English would be beneficial. If necessary, we can support you with language trainings.

  • A great team with lots of fun at work and regular team events
  • A positive and appreciative working environment
