Dear {{Name}}, 

Thank you for your offer of the position of {{Position}} of {{Department}} for the {{Company}}.

I enjoyed meeting with you last week to discuss the available Staff Supervisor position at {{Organization}}. While I am certainly grateful for your job offer, and still firmly believe it will be an exciting opportunity for me, I would like to continue negotiations concerning the salary you suggested.

Your salary offer was certainly generous. However, I would like to counter for a salary of {{Currency}}{{amount}}. I believe this is justified due to my extensive experience working within the {{field}} field, including more than a decade in administrative positions. Additionally, I have continued to take occasional online courses to keep me updated on current technology and trends.

I have researched Staff Supervisor salaries extensively before making this counteroffer to ensure that I was making a fair request. As I mentioned during our interview, I think this position offers a lot of exciting possibilities. Since I am a people person with proven leadership abilities, I believe I will make a valuable addition to your staff after working out this remaining detail.

I look forward to the opportunity to schedule another meeting with you at your convenience to further discuss my reasonable salary request. Thank you for your time.

Thank you very much for your consideration.

Yours sincerely,
