Research your case

Before you speak to anybody about a pay increase, ensure you are prepared and have done enough research to propose your case. We suggest searching for similar jobs to compare your salary with others out there, this may help with your argument. Ensure you know what you’re worth, what you bring to the company and what your employer can offer before bringing up that all-important conversation.
