I started a new job a few weeks ago. It's a start up company so I'm only on MW and zero hour contract for the time being. Generally it's been really good though and all the other staff are lovely.
There are 2 people in my 'department', me and one other guy who is my immediate boss. He has just told us he is leaving so the assumption seems to be that I will be taking over running the department (although no one has explicitly said this). I am the only one with the experience and qualifications to do so and I know from speaking to the management that they won't be replacing him with a new staff member.
Wibu to ask for a higher rate of pay considering that I'm not going to be doing a different and more different job than I was hired to do? I'm just unsure if I should bring it up or wait for them to offer as I don't want to look grabby!
