When I started in my role it was a newly formed role assistant in an admin team. It has gradually morphed into a full admin role as I undertake almost the whole role. When I compare job descriptions every duty but one I do and the other duty I could do but don't. My role pays £4000 pa less though. There are issues recruiting into a role the same as mine because of the responsibility of the role for the salary offered. My query is could I challenge my employer to pay me more because it's so similar ? Am worried if they recruit someone on more money I'll be the lowest paid. Don't mean to sound so tight and money obsessed but it doesn't seem fair and the company seems to have quite a few pay disparities

I would have a chat with your manager and say your role has changed to include more responsibility but your salary doesn't reflect that and would the company consider a payrise. They don't have to agree though.

Is there anything stopping you from applying for the other job that is £4K more?

Thanks for replyingsmile There aren't any vacancies for the other roles, I did apply for one back in 2014 but they employed someone from outside the company as the director wanted to bring someone from the private sector as their way of transforming the team.

In that case gather together evidence showing that you go above and beyond what you were employed to do and demonstrate that you match everything on the job description for the higher paid job. Hopefully your employer will be reasonable and agree to a pay rise. Good luck.

Ah thank you smile I don't think there's much chance as we have a pay freeze on but I will try / thank you
