On UP3 Interview for a post with TLR 2 can I ask for reduced pay?

    Hello,
    I am an experienced teacher, still enjoying teaching and have been looking for permanent positions. I got my first 4 jobs easily and after children did maternity covers and part time contracts with supply. I have kept up with professional development but am struggling to get a permanent contract now. I am being shortlisted to the last 2 at interviews, each time losing out to a teacher with 2 - 5 years experience. I have an interview coming up for a TLR2 post but I am already UP3 so know I am expensive. Can I ask the Head to consider a reduction in salary or no TLR 2? Any other tips to help me, an enthusiastic teacher get a job?
    Thank you.

    Your application would have made it clear how 'expensive' you are - so why do you think you are nearly getting the post if you think you are being turned away for financial reasons?
