When we asked listeners to get in touch if they wanted expert advice about getting a pay rise, we were inundated with your messages.

In today’s Money Clinic podcast, we triage three different pay problems. Natalie keeps getting knocked back when she asks for a raise; Max is being targeted by headhunters and knows that he could get paid more elsewhere; and Charlotte is trying to negotiate a bonus that really matches the effort she puts into her job.
