I understand it is totally my decision to stay or leave but I really want to get inputs from experienced veterans out there.
Thanks to NotAllThere for his advice about references.
To northernladuk: I am not sure about my IR35 status - I do not really understand what that is about. All I know is all my work here is solely about the specific project so I do not consider myself as part and parcel of the organisation. Thanks for highlighting that concern though.
Thanks also go to SueEllen and Lance for their useful suggestions (and mdhd for his/her hint?) about the requirement gathering and the project management although that will be an uphill battle along the way.
I will wait for my potential renewal and decide what to do afterwards. Will come back and post some update...
No need to post an update just get on and do it.
Then in a few years time when someone is moaning about not getting roles you can explain because you did x on one project and y on another you now have no problems getting roles.
