Meet the team: Kathryn Campbell

2023.06.20 Kathryn Campbell

Name: Kathryn Campbell

Title: Payroll & Contractor Coordinator

Region: Calgary, Canada

Time with company: Since June 2016


What do you do at Energy Resourcing? 

I work with the back-of-house team in Canada. My focus is our contractor payroll, but I also process our employee payroll and invoicing for receivables.  

How did you get into your current career?  

I was working in the administration field for the oil and gas sector for over thirteen years and was part of many layoffs and cutbacks several years ago. I took a leap of faith and decided to change what I’d been doing and applied with Energy Resourcing for the current role I have now. It turned out to be the best decision I could have made.  

Are you working on any specific projects at the moment? 

No specific projects – my role as Payroll Coordinator means there is a payroll every week to complete. But we are always working on ways to improve our processes. 

What’s the best part of your role? 

I enjoy the customer service I can provide by completing every payroll on time. It may sound nerdy, but I do also love when my balance sheets match exactly!

What is the most challenging part of your role? 

Trying to include as many late invoice submissions as I can, so that everyone gets paid. 

Any words of advice for young graduates?  

Payroll may not be the most glamorous job, but it is a necessary one. If you love numbers and balance sheets, then this might just be an option for you. 

What do you like to do outside of work?   

I love spending time with my grandchildren and family, working in my garden, and of course travelling. Our latest trip was to New York City, and I absolutely loved visiting all those iconic sites.

What was the last book you read? 

There is a Canadian author, Faith Wood, who is a suspense/mystery writer – I’ve been reading her series recently. 

Film you watched? 

‘Top Gun: Maverick’ and ‘A Man Called Otto’. 

Music you listened to? 

Generally, I like to listen to New Country.  

An experienced business development and client-focused manager.
