          Yep. A mate went for an interview and afterwards the agency got back to her, said the client was interested but wanted her to lower her rate. She told the agency to tell the client her rate had gone up.

            What's more, some of the roles on jobserve actually exist and don't just dump your cv back into cwjobs...

              according to the stats, 2017 better rates than 2015 or 2016 just less of them (so far). No doubt election and brexit having an effect on big capital expenditure.

                I agree all my contracts have been from there but the number of HR policy external candidates required when the role has already gone, fake or duplicate ads is also higher than ever.

                  There seem to be squillions more ads on Jobserve than any other site. Case in point - find a very specific search filter, should produce a small number of results (see the numbers next to the filter options) - however if you keep scrolling the jobs just keep appearing.

                  What insight have jobserve got that jobsite, Monster, CW etc. don't have?

                  Finding things so quiet that having to do something I swore I'd never do and get back into the "suits, process and depression" world of financial services.

                    None, apart from more 20 year old scroats posting fake adverts.

                    By all means keep looking but pickings will be slimmer until the election is out of the way, not long to wait though.

                      and a few weeks afterwards.... Just because the election is over doesn't mean things that on hold will instantly start up again...
