Tip for the top: Salary reviews

Whether you're in your perfect job, or about to start a new one, being able to identify and negotiate the correct salary for yourself is a crucial skill. Getting it right on the day could net you thousands of pounds throughout the months that follow and spare you immeasurable amounts of bitterness.

Negotiation skills

- Make sure you know your worth. Compare your salary to what other people in your position, both internally and externally, are receiving.

- Demand that your employer keeps to the specified review date, because if you do eventually get a rise, it's very difficult to back-date it.

- If you feel you're an asset to your employer, but aren't getting sufficient reward, then getting another job offer is the ultimate negotiation tactic.

The threat of your departure may free your employer's hand to negotiate a rise.
