"Information's pretty thin stuff unless mixed with experience"

We recommend using Quiglies to negotiate on your behalf but here are some tips to bear in mind when it comes to salary:

  • It’s always best to avoid discussing salary in the first interview but if the interviewer asks the question, always be upfront and honest regarding what you currently earn and it’s a good idea to have a recent pay slip handy as proof of earnings.
  • When the time comes to talk about money, it’s best to talk about total cost to company so make sure you know what your current cost to company salary is.
  • Be realistic about what you ask for and be prepared to motivate your requests. Quiglies recommends a benchmark of between 10 and 20% increase on your current earnings.
