I am a marketing coordinator for a large professional body. I was in a team of three - two marketing coordinators working under a marketing manager.

 

My colleague, a fellow marketing coordinator, has left for bigger and better things. I have been informed that there will not be anyone else recruited to fill the position and I am highly unlikely to get a pay rise despite having an increased workload and therefore increased responsibility. In order to avoid giving me a pay rise, my line manager argues that she will take on some of the work and she will try to reduce my workload. She also argues that the extra work is not extra responsibility!? My line manager is already snowed under with work and it is highly unlikely that we can recruit a temp. How should I approach this?

 

I really need the extra cash as I am already struggling to make ends meet and I'm already being under paid by about £4,000 PA.

I would imagine this is quite a common situation, I doubt realistically there is much you can do about it.

 

When it comes to appraisal time you could point out that your work load has increased or simplest solution is to go get another job.

 

If you are so underpaid I would assume you would be looking anyway.

How should I approach this?

 

Without sounding flipant, like a game of Poker.

 

There is nothing in law that says that you must automatically receive a pay rise because your colleague has left, and consequently your workload has increased.

 

Thus, this is purely a contractual issue.

 

How much do they need you?

 

How much can you bluff them that you will leave if you don't get 'x'?

 

The only legal issue, is if your job has changed so dramatically because of the increased work as to make them in breach of contract, but I wouldn't even bother with this route for now.

 

Negotiation, is the answer for now.
