    Default Hi...About to go contracting

    The agent is probably keen since he's got someone lined up for your old job for when you resign.

    You resign, he fills your old role, then drops you like a stone...

    Lol... Now that's a bit of out there thinking. Kudos to the agent if he puts that off.

    Put yourself in their shoes, ideally they would like to fill both roles.
    The agent is likely to now have have contact details of the OPs current manager, in any case, so is likely to try and get in contact, all potential business to them.
