Zellis are leaders in HR and payroll. Our purpose is to make people feel appreciated for the work they do – through precision, choice, and magic. Our multi-award-winning products pay over five million employees a year; with almost half (45%) of the FTSE 100, 50% of the top retailers and 30% of the top universities in the UK and Ireland as customers, making us largest providers of payroll and HR software and Managed Services.

Whether you’re passionate about all things payroll, dedicated to customer delivery, or a true techie who’s ready to work across a myriad of cutting-edge solutions, then Zellis may just have a place for you.


Zellis Group believes that everyone, irrespective of their gender, sexual orientation, race, nationality, religious belief, disability, or any personal characteristics, should be supported to achieve their ambitions equally.

We are committed to building a diverse, inclusive and engaging culture and environment that colleagues want to join and are proud to be part of.

We recognise this requires long term commitment, with support and participation from all colleagues which is why we have spent time working with colleagues, industry experts, customers and partners to define a comprehensive Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI) approach that will help us become a more inclusive organisation, that is truly reflective of the communities and customers we serve.

We ask all colleagues to complete an annual Diversity, Equity & Inclusion eLearning module and provide enhanced training for managers to support them to source and select talent, ensuring balanced shortlists and practical tools and data to support hiring decisions and break down barriers to entering work for people from disadvantaged or underrepresented groups.

We also offer awareness sessions to educate and give practical ways for leaders, managers and colleagues to create a more inclusive workplace including – education on pronouns, British Sign Language, Autism at work and cultural differences.

At Zellis we welcome gender pay gap reporting as an effective way for us, along with other organisations, to gain visibility on progress for gender pay parity – an intrinsic part of achieving gender equality.

We are also proud that our two in-house management and leadership development programmes, launched in 2019, support our ambitions for a more equal and reflective company structure, with 66% of Making Management Count and 63% of Future Leaders UK delegates being women.

Making use of our own products and capabilities we have developed MyDiversity – a diversity data capture module within ResourceLink – to help baseline our organisation against the communities we operate in and set out measurable high level ambitions and goals.

In February 2022 we launched the first of our colleague-led networks – ‘Count Me In’, a women’s’ business group and ‘Moore Visibility’ our group wide LGBT+ network – to accelerate change and ensure colleagues views and interests are represented at all levels of the business.
