Clayton Recruitment in the Daily Mail

Posted by: Whitney Griffiths

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.'
