What are your salary requirements? What is your current salary? The answer to these two questions can be quite different but when you make an application, we often only receive information on the latter. Your current salary might be significantly higher than what you are looking for in your next opportunity because your personal circumstances may have changed but equally, you might be looking for a higher salary than what you are on at the moment because you feel you are under paid. Providing this information whether it be on your CV or in a covering note, is very helpful to the recruitment consultants who are shortlisting on behalf of their clients and will help them match you best to the opportunities they are recruiting for.
