Default Salary Increment Rate

is it normal to ask for 20% increment when jumping ship and when there is no change in designation and job scope?

What is usual range to ask for?

It really depends on what is your current wage versus the market wage. what level you are moving at. what job scope. what industry you are in.

You should speak with a headhunter who knows the market and he will give you a more accurate picture than what people who don't know your background can give you.

If it helps, I got +20% 6 months ago when I changed job. But there was a change in job scope and my new role is more demanding.

20% is the normal range when jumping ship, but if your current pay is very low can ask for more.

Must be careful of recruiters because sometimes they will try and undercut you by telling you industry norm is 10% - 15% because they are very scared that the deal falls through they can't get commission.

I got this recruiter before who I ask for 25% because the new company benefit a little lower try to bullsh!t me to accepting just 15%. I kept insisting no 25% no join and in the end got the offer.

After I join I check with my boss and realise the recuiter actually didn't even communicate my 25% request and instead put in 15% because the 25% exceed the company budget slightly and she was scared the company will reject outright, so she was trying to play both sides by lowering my expectation and force fit into what she thinks the client is prepared to pay.

I received more than 20% increment, not for changing job but staying in the same job with a promotion in grade.

Some of you may not believe but this is one of the strategies by companies to retain key personnel when they know that the industry is doing well and looking for people to fill key positions.

Therefore, you need not change jobs to get more than 20% increment - just make sure you make yourself valuable to the company.
