    I do understand that I had already accepted the original contract with the wrong address. There is no financial penalty for going back on the contract.
    worth checking the contract for a probation period, just to have it up your sleeve if they don't like that you have gone for the other contract.

    I had this before as a permie where I accepted an offer, but then went for a different one. Agent wasn't very happy with me but as I was during my "probation" period where either party could give 1 weeks notice and my start date was 3 weeks ago, i just gave notice and there was nothing they could do. Agent said i'd never work for that company as a result, but 2 years later, there i was......

    What I was actually thinking, is that he believes this invalidates the contract, as he made a point that he has not accepted, the amended contract via a portal.
    I was, also, trying to point out the original signing still stands.

    Maybe, I need a little lie down
    I think you're probably right on all counts.

    The address is not a material factor so the rest of the contract still stands as accepted.

    Companies can move addresses or change names during contracts.

    However as the agent is thick I would see if they understand this.

    Hmmm, one for Solomon I think. Does the address invalidate the entire contract?

    I was talking about this part:-

    Recruiter A had sent contract A with a mistake in the address so he had to re-issue the contract. He has now re-issued it and I am yet to accept it within the portal.

    Following the interview, I have been offered contract B at £450 per day. It seems like it will be more interesting and varied. Also more challenging but I don't mind a challenge. And the drive was real nice so I could get used to doing that every day for 6 months.

    Contract A is not due to start for another 3 weeks but as soon as I receive Contract B and have it reviewed by the accountants, I will let Recruiter A know ASAP and I am sure he is going to be fuming.
