    I wasn't being literal. You wouldn't get a contractor working for that though, would you

    Understood. I was making the point that T2 isn't the open door for cheap Indians some here like Coolcat seem to think is.

    I'd say he's a one-man recruiter with a website.

    He trawls the job boards and bothers people directly whilst hoping they don't twig. Lack of any companies house presence would worry me.
    Why not ask them why the site is still dated 2011, and can you have their company and VAT numbers so you can do due diligence before you'll let them put you forward for a role?

    Cheap Engineers push your salary/rate up, why ?

    because the sh*t mundane stuff gets done cheap, increasing the profitability of the company and they can pay more tor the really difficult stuff.

    I work in a company that now uses plenty of "cheap" offshore Engineers, and not only do I now earn more than I did before we starting using them. I have an easier life.

    Can't even find the agency on company check.
    And people told me I was silly for always changing my phone number

    You are.

    I still get calls from people I met ages ago who are worth speaking to.

    I just block the annoying agencies.

    Tell them that your business model is to steal agency contracts by going direct and then ask them for the client details.

    Then pass their details onto hair gel wholesalers.
