    This. Contract A might still not happen for some reason. Go to the interview with B and then (assuming B offers you the role) politely decline it only after you're already on site at A and invoicing.

    +1 this

    go to interview B, see how it goes. It's not impossible that A could cancel your contract before you even start so cover yourself until you are 100% sure and in the door of client A.

    You only have a decision to make if B also offer you the role....if that happens, then deal with it.

    If you have a bum on seat at Client A, cancel the interview with Client B, if not I would not have any objection to proceeding with Client B and turning them down when I start Client A, as offers can fall though right up to the last minute
    Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.

    It has as much to do with the Ops post as your contribution, where does he say he is in the Scottish contracting market, the rates are too high for a start....

    No.

    He didn't. My point was about the size of market and the cost-risk analysis around burning bridges re: dumping a confirmed deal versus an interview.

    SimonMac and moneymoney had the more precise "advise" however given the OP hadn't indicated if there was a start date yet.

    Anyway that's a shame, you really should have been. For typos if nothing else.

    I don't have the time for moderating. You'll make a good choice, though you'll need to rein it in a bit - isn't that going to be tough?
