I know that there has been many discussions with regards to what salary people would take to go from contractor to permie. However I am looking for some advice from people.
I am currently a Cisco CCNP qualified network engineer working in the public sector. Obviously with all the IR35 changes i am looking for a new contract, before the new tax year.
However a previous company i used to work for is now advertising a permie position and I have a meeting/Interview to chat about it.
I have been contracting for 2 years and my average day rate is around £325.
The permie position is offering 55k plus up to 15% bonus, 10% pension contributions with all the health benefits share saving scheme etc. As well as it been only a 10 minute drive away. Finally the start date would be tied in with the new tax year allowing a smooth transition.
The difficulty I am in deciding is the financial aspect as well as the freedom, i initially decided to myself that if i was offered the role i would accept but now i am having doubts.
I haven't really had an issue finding contracts each time on finished however with the market likely to be flooding with people leaving the public sector its likely to become saturated.
Any one else been in the situation who can offer advise?
