Any fuker here work in recruitment or experience in the area of Pricing (e.g. Analyst) - I've just been offered a role and wondered if anybody would be able to give a rough estimate to the ideal salary that I should be looking at; especially within London.

I'm finding it abit difficult to gauge a realistic salary I should be negotiating to.

If someone can drop a PM that would be great!

Edit: Thanks Timmbo appreciated mate.

Can any HR specialists advise me whether an employer can withdraw a conditional offer on the basis that I don't fulfill one area of the job's desirable criteria - despite highlighting this at every stage of the process and it being agreed beforehand?

Bit vague so will provide more info if required.

Depends - context? Being the professional mover, I did it when I changed industry slightly - and now 2 years later I'm earning way more than I would've been.

How much more should I expect to be paid for doing the same job in London? Considering a move from the West Midlands but only being offered £3.5k more than my current salary, which seems quite low.

Usually that's about what I've seen as the standard London Weighting amount, not much though

Anyone in sales got any advice on closing deals, or language that they use to persuade the client during the proposal/closing phase.

V. new to sales and have been told by colleagues that I'm saying all the right things up to this point and making progress by being the most proactive in chasing and prospecting leads, but that is now the stumbling block. Obviously quite a big one!

Assume a fair few fukers are self employed, recently became fully self employed. Really don't make the most of tax breaks and offsetting cost (expenses etc..) against tax so would like to change this.

Anyone got any solid information on where to start. Particularly interested in whether I can offset cost of a new car or lease against my tax as a business expense. I have a fixed place of work although I do travel to other locations on occasion.

If anyone has any experience could they PM me? Cheers

Currently working in a retail finance role for a large UK retailer and should be finished with CIMA study by the summer.

Looking to move to a smaller company, and wondered whether anyone had any advice/experience they could share via pm.

I was thinking the same especially considering the fact it's in LDN. Measly fucking wages to pay for a Store Manager.

when you think of the rent and start up costs and running costs, small indies have to sell a shed load of clobber to get in the black.

it's a good opportunity for someone to step up and gain experience.

what salary would you expect for a small mens clothes shop?
