Clayton Recruitment in the Daily Mail

  • February 28, 2017

Lynn Sedgwick, Managing Director of Clayton Recruitment, recently featured in the Daily Mail offering her top three tips on negotiating the salary you want. Here is her advice:

Demonstrate your worth in monetary terms

‘That means giving examples of the times you’ve saved – or made – your employer money or have achieved something that has made a significant difference to the firm like changing inefficient processes, or opening a new business division.’

Be prepared to negotiate

‘You need to be able to state your case in a clear and concise way and don’t be afraid to haggle. The vast majority of interviewers will expect this to happen and so will leave a bit of wiggle room to potentially move your salary up.’

Good experience if handled correctly

‘The worst thing that can happen – if you conduct yourself properly – is that the interviewer says “no” and that answer won’t last forever. Even an unsuccessful salary negotiation can provide you with good experience so it’s worth giving it a go if you value your chances.’
