Janice is Mercer & Hole’s Payroll Manager, responsible for coordinating and managing the entire payroll system. She has been in the payroll sector for over 40 years, ever since her first payroll job in a cleaning company at the age of 16. Janice enjoys the interesting contracts and the diversity within payroll.
With her work in the payroll sector taking her from the contract cleaning industry to accountancy, Janice has worked with a wide variety of clients and has held a range of responsibilities. Her early career within the cleaning world allowed her to work in a variety of contexts, including the Old Bailey and many government buildings. She has been involved in many interesting cases, one of which required her to work heavily with a tax team that ultimately resulted in fantastic outcomes for the accountants and the client. As Janice says, “never say payroll is dull”!
Mercer & Hole has over 350 payroll clients of all different sectors and sizes, with our smallest being director-only payrolls, and our largest including a bakery and a gaming company. Through her role as Payroll Manager, Janice deals with the payrolls of solicitors, dentists, preschools, and companies from many other sectors. Internally, Janice works closely with all the firm’s partners that have their own payroll clients, tax teams, bookkeepers and audit managers.
With four children and three grandchildren, Janice rarely has a quiet moment, but when she does, she enjoys clay pigeon shooting with her husband.
