Here’s what our people are saying…

Gabrielle Dean, Senior Payroll Specialist

“Joining the ADP academy immediately made me feel at ease. The group of 10 were from a variety of backgrounds and with little to no payroll knowledge. From payroll basics, to system training, to customer service, the 14 week intense training programme really helped me to obtain some complex payroll skills I needed to fulfil the role as a payroll specialist. ADP has consistently given me the support and ability to progress in my career from a trainee, to a payroll specialist to my current position as a Senior Payroll Specialist. It’s so important to feel valued within a business, and ADP has not disappointed as they have provided me with the continuous support and development I need to drive my career forward.”

Joanne Day, Associate Functional Consultant – Client Solutions

“Joining the ADP training academy was a brilliant opportunity for me as I had no background in payroll. The 14 week intense training programme enabled me to attain the fundamental skills required to begin a new career path at ADP, that I would not have been able to peruse otherwise. The training gave me the knowledge that I needed to build a solid foundation of experience that has led me from a Graduate Trainee to a Senior Payroll Specialist. I have now moved onto a new role within Client Solutions Consultancy. I really enjoy working at ADP as there is a high sense of encouragement from both associates and management for independent growth and internal promotion. There are also lots of incentives that the company offers to make the working week more fun, such as theme days, activities and the occasional treat. In an industry that can sometimes be quite demanding, this gives us such a great moral boost and continues to make you feel like a valued associate at ADP.”
