    I have to fix the code of the onshore on site consultants who know better than what the customer wants.

    It wouldn't be so bad if what they wrote was just poor rather than overly complex and totally and utterly unfit for purpose
    merely at clientco for the entertainment

      You're missing the point. It generates a requirement for more consultancy days.

        I know exactly what the point is. But they've spent all the budget and I only have enough money for myself and the permie I've been lumbered with

            Fortune favours the brave! I got a contract in Zurich but WFH 5 days a week in UK... and paid in euros, my day rate just jumped about 30 pounds a day

              Hope it's 1000 CFH per day at least, three days in CH have cleaned me out!

                Early days but starting to get some traction in applying, getting responses back from agents now rather than radio silence.

                Every day in current gig is a bonus, but don't see the role lasting to the projected end date in August

                    That may be the case in the coming months. Right now on a Monday morning it feels to me like someone fired almost all of the contract recruitment consultants in the country apart from, the government ones trying to recruit director level roles for £350pd in central london.
