Negotiating the Job Offer
Morgan McKinley’s consultants are specialists in each of their sectors and will know exactly what the most appropriate offer is for each individual in each job. We are committed to ensuring that both the jobseeker and prospective employer reach a mutually satisfactory outcome.
Following a job interview, if you are successful and are offered the job by your Morgan McKinley consultant on behalf of a prospective employer, you will need to ensure familiarity with what the job entails, what is expected of you and what benefit package is on offer, including salary, holiday allowance and bonus schemes.
If the job offer is satisfactory, you accept and reconfirm your enthusiasm for joining the team or company. If, however, you are unsatisfied with the job offer, then you will need to carefully consider whether the job is right for you and discuss it in detail with your Morgan McKinley consultant. One approach is to negotiate a job offer by being clear about your expectations and what you are willing to accept or concede.
Remember, if you are facing the possibility of negotiating a job offer, whether for a job in China or abroad, the first person to contact is your Morgan McKinley recruitment consultant. Consultants at Morgan McKinley can answer all of your negotiation questions and put your mind at ease over what your next steps should be.
Negotiating - Securing a Positive Outcome
As with any negotiation, you may be entirely successful in securing your objectives, however, there’s always a risk that you might not be. Negotiating a job offer is a prime opportunity for you to display your business acumen and confidence. You never know – you might just surprise yourself by getting exactly what you ask for.
The key to successful negotiations is to:
- Remain professional, open and honest – all characteristics conducive to the open forum for discussion that negotiations need.
- Keep an open mind, but remain focused on what goals you wish to achieve.
- Remain realistic – in negotiations, it’s rare that everyone gets exactly what they want.
Negotiations, when facilitated by a Morgan McKinley consultant, can be resolved as easily as they were entered into, provided that communication has remained straightforward, honest and professional. If you are unwilling to accept the job offer and were unsuccessful in your negotiations, graciously decline the offer with professionalism. Whether you are successful in negotiating or not, but still wish to accept the job offer, do so with the same interest and passion for the job and company as you would have done in the beginning.
