‘If you don’t ask, you’ll never know:’ Key pointers for securing a raise in 2022.

MANY Britons will make a pay rise a New Year’s resolution this year, but how easy is it to get one?

There’s no guarantee your boss will say yes, according to one expert, but there is a right and wrong way to go about it.

She gave This website exclusive insight into her top tips for giving it your all.

Every January, millions of people begin the New Year with the goal of finding a new job or increasing their pay.

As Britons struggle to meet higher living costs due to rising bills, a pay rise could be higher on the list than ever this year.

Clare Willets is a mentor in the advertising industry who hosts power hours on how to negotiate a raise.

She said she learned the hard way that if she didn’t ask, she didn’t get.

“I would go into every review prepared to have a pay raise discussion if I felt I deserved one,” Clare explained.

“It’s scary at first, but it’s a lot easier if you’re prepared.”

She started hosting power hours last year after many of her mentees expressed concern about asking for a raise.

“I’ve been mentoring people in advertising for several years, including volunteering for Creative Mentor Network, which helps young people from low-income backgrounds find jobs in the creative industry,” she continued.

“People often focus on pay,” she continued, “but there may be other things that people are thinking about as well, especially since the last few years have brought a lot of change and focus on what is important to many people.”

“I frequently ask people whether the issue is pay or role because it’s critical to distinguish.”

If it’s the pay that’s the issue, Claire has five suggestions for getting a raise.

“It’s difficult to talk about money,” she continued, “but keep in mind that losing a good employee costs a company a lot of money to replace.”
