So you’ve passed the interview and been offered the job, now all you need to do is sign on the dotted line, right? Wrong. Your employment contract is a legally binding document, so you need to make sure that you are 100% satisfied with the benefits as well as the salary that you will receive as part of your total package when you start working for the company.
After her amazing debut guest slot on the first #JobAdviceSA chat of 2020 it was clear that the best person to help us navigate us through the delicate topic of negotiating your employment contract is online Career Coach, and Head of Learning, Knowledge, Program Quality and M&E at @ActionAid International, Ennie Chipembere. Here are the questions that she will be helping us to answer:
Q1. What do you need to know before you negotiate your contract?
Q2. What financial benefits can you negotiate other than salary?
Q3. What work structure, wellness and days off benefits can you negotiate?
Q4. What personal development benefits can you negotiate?
You can answer any of the questions using A1, A2, A3, etc, or ask any other questions you might have, using the hashtag #JobAdviceSA.
We look forward to chatting with you on Monday!
