Want A Raise Without Sounding Like A Blackmailer

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about money: How can I drop hints that I’m looking for new opportunities,without actually going for a interview?

I have been working for the company for 6 years and am part of a department of about ten people. However the job I do is very specific and I and another girl are the two that have the qualification and experience to carry it out. It’s a very important part of the company structure. She is leaving in 4 weeks time to take maternity leave and they are trying to recruit a temp to cover her for 9 months, (I’m more senior than her and earn £21,900 per annum. They are having great difficulty in finding someone with the skills and experience to take on the role. They are offering the job at £20k, however I heard they might now be willing to up this salary to try and get someone. The job is very busy and you need two full time people. If they don’t get someone in soon they will be in big trouble.
