Payroll CV

A payroll CV is all about displaying an in-depth knowledge of the job. Your work experience section should entice the recruiter to shortlist you. There are many payroll jobs and most of them require one to be able to work unsupervised. Give the employer the idea that you can work on your own. Let your resume reflect a team player, a leader and a self motivated individual.
