A WOMAN awarded herself a £7k pay rise at a company that lets employees set their own salaries – before boasting “I’m worth it”.

Cecilia Manduca, 25, who works for London firm GrantTree, recently decided to take her salary from £30,000 to £37,000.

GrantTree – which helps businesses secure government funding – lets employees decide what they earn.

But colleagues can’t grant themselves a raise without discussing it with their colleagues first – and it must be in line with what they’d earn at a similar firm.

She told BBC 5 Live: “I felt a lot of doubts asking for that raise. It took a lot of talks with other people.

“When I spoke with my colleagues internally and asked for advice, the advice they gave me was that, yes, I did deserve it and I was worth it.


Cecilia made the decision to hike her pay after her responsibilities at the firm changed.

She said: “I was aware that my job had changed. I was aware I was going way beyond my targets”.

GrantTree’s 45 employees set their own salaries and can have them reviewed as often as they like – as long as colleagues agree.
