I have been offered an interim role to cover maternity leave.
The interim role will be for 6 months. It will involve more day to day tasks. This includes monitoring of team members and tasks and more weekly/monthly meetings. It is a management role of a small team. I am currently a team member in the same team. In my company, there is a relatively big difference in salary ranges for these two roles.
This interim role does not come with a pay raise. I work in tech.
Is this common practice with interim roles to not offer a pay raise? Does it depend on individual companies or industries? Should I try to negotiate a raise or even an end of year bonus for successfully running the team for that duration?
With the increased level of work required, I think it is unfair to not receive a temporary pay increase/bonus. The only benefit of taking the role without a pay increase is that successfully running the team would definitely put me in the first place to become a team manager in the future on a department wide basis. I enjoy my current role and I am happy with my current salary. I think I am a capable of leading the team also.
I think this question and the answers given are pretty close to what I am asking and I found it helpful. I decided to post this question anyways because of the duration of the interim role which is almost guaranteed to be 6 months.
