UK pubcaster Channel 4 has commissioned a documentary from the Scottish arm of Argonon-owned Remedy Productions.
Commissioned by Daniel Pearl, Channel 4′s deputy head news and current affairs, How to Get a Pay Rise is Remedy Scotland’s first current affairs commission, and is set to air on Channel 4′s ‘Dispatches’ strand.
The 1 x 30 doc dispenses advice on how to negotiate one’s salary in the context of the UK job market, where over half of the work force has reported feeling underpaid, according to research conducted by international law firm Slater & Gordon.
The doc will feature Dan Hughes (pictured), who trained civil servants representing the UK at Brexit negotiations. Hughes has worked with multinational companies, and has also advised members of UK football team Arsenal on how to negotiate player contracts.
“Salaries are a hot topic and with Brexit looming, the ‘negotiation’ buzzword is top of people’s minds,” said head of Remedy Scotland Jim Regan. “This is the perfect time to make a program tackling the often daunting prospect of negotiating with the boss. We hope that this film really pays off for our audiences.”
Dispatches: How to Get a Pay Rise is produced by Remedy Scotland. Ted Hill and Jim Regan are executives producers, and John MacLaverty serves as producer director.
