  2. Sticky Thread Sticky: Security Clearance (SC) Q&A Read first before asking questions

    Please find below an accumulation of questions that have featured on some of the many reptitive questions about SC. Maybe by putting them in a stickie and adding when we get new ones we can bat some of the drudgery off. I have given canned answers from what I read on the forum but you know how...

  7. Sticky Thread Sticky: Behaviour in the Professional Forums

    I have noticed an increase in squabbling and bickering in the Professional forums of late. I am not amused. I do not care who starts the squabbling. I will finish it by banning all participants. The more persistant the squabbling the longer the ban. Feel free to disagree and correct but...

  1. Different rate discussed in the interview

    I know this has been asked before but my Google search isn't bringing up the threads I recall seeing. Pre-interview I had as good as no detail on the role so I said I wouldn't commit to a rate. But I did say my previous rate was £Y. To which Agent said he thought that would be higher than they...

  7. Accenture - working for?

    Anyone got any experience of? I've heard stories they are strange with mega long days expected etc. They seem to pay fairly well but I'm too old for this sort of thing all the time. (and also its all well and good having a daily rate 1.5x normal but not so good when your day is 2.0x as long).
