[*]Salary is negotiable based on relevant experience

This always gets me. What they mean to say is they want to see your current payslip and offer you 5-10% more. But if your payslip reflects a figure larger than the person interviewing you earns, then it's a no go.

So negotiable should have at least an upper bound less than or equal to what your potential future manager earns.

Hi Stricken, thank you for your response.
I do understand where you are coming from as in most cases that is definitely true. However, we are not a Software Development company looking for young developers who should be earning less than the Hiring Manager.
We at our firm believe that if a person is earning a certain salary and can prove they are worth it then we are more than happy to negotiate.

Thank you for clearing that up Stacey. I suppose I was just being a troll, speaking from past experience. Good luck with finding your candidate. I'm sure he/she is out there.

Hi Stricken. Thank you for your response and I'm sorry you've had some bad experience's in the past.
Please feel free to hang on to my details in case you're ever in the job market - I will never waste my candidates time with an interview without knowing what the salary details are beforehand - stacey@africorpsolutions.co.za
