How do I approach my new manager to renegotiate my salary, not long after transitioning from another department ?
I used to work in a department that was set up to run a specific project. The project ends in June this year, and the roles are being made redundant. Most people on the project were seconded from other areas of the business, and will go back to those roles.
I was a new hire, so did not have anywhere to fall back to.
However, my manager did not want the company to lose me, so I have transitioned into a new role. in another department. Any job at the company should normally be advertised. However, my new role was not, and my job title has not changed either, I was told the reason for this was so that they could get me into the new role through the back door, and without any questions from HR, and no need to go through the interview process.
However, I also feel I missed the chance to re-negotiate my salary. Although my job title is still the same, I am now working on a lot bigger projects than I was before, and feel I should be paid more for this.
What is the best way to approach my manger about this ?
Or should I perhaps wait 7 months for the end of year review ?
I am an analyst, I was working along side Supply Chain on the previous project, and now am working in Sales & Operations planning.
I am of course very grateful to live in a country where finding a good paid job is fairly easy. (England)
And am happy the the company could in fact keep me on once the project ended.
But being in this very lucky situation, is by no means a reason to settle in life, I still want to earn as much money as possible to provide my child the best in life too.
