Negotiate the salary you want from your next executive role

Go in prepared.

That question. What are your salary expectations? Can come anytime, from first interview to final. More often than not it starts with the recruiter.

Do your research so you don’t get caught off guard.

  • Handle these negotiations confidently, without hesitation.
  • Know what your worth in the current market. This varies wildly, don’t assume your current Company has this right.
  • Add up all the benefits of your old role.
  • Add on 10% for leaving one role, more if the responsibilities are more.
  • As with all negotiations, start high and be prepared to come down a little.
  • Be ready to turn the question back to them what is the salary range?
  • Highlight specifically how you add value to your current company. For example unpaid overtime, etc.

Be prepared to use benefits as a bargaining chip. Compare both roles like for like and weigh up the old benefits package against the new one.

Include intangible benefits, like occasionally working from home, less travel etc.
When you are weighing up whether to take an offer take into account any lifestyle changes and how much more or less this will cost you.

For example going from jobs in the suburbs to a city centre role can cost more in motoring costs, parking costs and time each day.

Finally- closing the deal.

Check how often you can expect a pay review.
Be sure to request the outcome of the negotiation recorded in your contract and signed by both parties. It is important to have a lawful written record.
