How to negotiate a job offer in 5 simple steps

Grab that job in five easy steps!

The world of work is a tricky place to be right now. The job market is arguably the most competitive it has been in decades, unemployment rates are high and the sheer number of people applying for the same job is intimidating to say the least. 
However, this does not mean you should forget about negotiating that job offer once you get one. 

If you've been offered a new role then negotiating the offer in your favour is definitely a skill to acquire that can make your life a whole lot easier. 
Knowing how to get what you want without putting off your new employers is a tricky balancing act, so we spoke to recruitment consultant Tom Bunkham to get his advice.

He says it’s all about looking at the bigger picture, “Once you have made it through the interview with flying colours and secured a job offer, you will be at the stage where you can discuss salaries and benefits. 
"From the basic pay to your benefits package, it’s important to know the most effective way to negotiate a job offer.”
