    Yes but the average agency drone won't do that...

    But that wasn't the point I was making to the OP

    What Mal says. There are always odd exceptions like this which are great when they happen but they aren't enough to base a long term contract career on.

    I currently am in a similar situation but I didn't go contracting on that. I went with the knowledge I had. I then had to learn new skills between contracts then choose which contracts to take so I could use these skills in addition to my main skill.
