Discussing salaries at interviews can be a difficult topic for both the client and the candidate. What would you do if you found a suitable candidate and they wanted a higher salary than you were offering?
Always be clear about the salary being offered – this topic is best brought up early in the recruitment process to ensure time is not wasted and the candidate and client know the score right from the start. Ensure the job description contains a salary range for negotiations within.
What do you do if you find the perfect candidate and they’re asking for more money? See below for some tips and advice on what to do in this scenario….

Honesty and Transparency
Always be honest with the candidate but have an upper limit in mind should the need arise. Ask the candidate about what salary they are expecting – this may be higher but they too probably have room for negotiation.
When you find the suitable candidate but they want more remember the following:
Find a salary that suits the candidate and yourself alike. You don’t want to risk losing the right candidate to a competitor if a better opportunity arises they may not feel obliged to be loyal.
The key to a successful candidate/client relationship is to discuss salary and expectations right at the very start of the recruitment process this will prevent time wasting and ensure the most suitable candidates come forward.
