You've researched the company, updated your CV and passed the job interview with flying colours.
But experts say you shouldn't rush into accepting a job offer until you've asked your potential employer ten vital questions.
From enquiring about recent team promotions to questioning what they dislike about the company, recruiters say posing these questions can help ensure you get the money, respect and happiness that you deserve.
1. Is the salary negotiable?
'This is a question on every candidate’s lips,' said Lee Biggins, founder and managing director of CV-Library.
'If you don’t try, you don’t get. Be prepared to back your case though as every employer is out to cut costs where possible – even if you’re the best person for the job.'
A spokesperson for Glassdoor agrees, adding: 'Remember an offer is an offer and very few employers expect you to take the first one out of the gate.'
'So, come to the table expecting to negotiate. Don’t just ask for more, but do so intelligently, with real numbers to support your argument. Use your research to put together a case for more base salary or a signing bonus because if you don’t ask, you most definitely won’t get it.
'And, as I know from being an employee and a hiring manager, it is always easier negotiate as you are going into a new job.'
2. Aside from salary, what other workplace perks do you offer your staff?
While some companies can’t offer the highest wages, they are able make up for it in other areas. Ask this question to find out how else they reward staff, whether it's flexible working, free lunches, and so on.
Negotiation expert Jonathan O'Brien believes that you should ask about training courses and business qualifications. 'It shows your employer you want to better yourself and increase your skill set, and indicates that you have a long-term interest in the company.'
'It’s crucial that you ask about training before you accept the job,' said Steve Jeffers, HR director at Meridian Business Support. 'Let’s face it, you won’t want to go in a role and stay there indefinitely – you’re likely to want a promotion at some point. By asking at the interview stages you can understand how you will progress through the company from the offset.'
3. What are the career development opportunities?
It’s a staple question, but very important. If you’re an individual that is driven by your ability to move up the ladder, this will help you understand the routes available and the potential timeframes.
4. Can you provide me with an example of a team member who recently got promoted?
