      well done fingers crossed all your checks pass.

      2 months is nothing around these parts.

      northernlad has taken holidays to bognor that are longer than that.

        After a whirlwind couple of days I start a new contract tomorrow. Rate a bit down on what I am used to and have to go to London but needs must.

          Congrats SS on the new role.

          I refuse to do London, & haven't considered anything down there for years. Rates usually decent but costs can wipe out a huge chunk of that unless you're prepared to rough it. Plus I like to be in my own bed of a night time. Getting too old for that living out of a suitcase malarky.
          Clarity is everything

            Phone call today

            Can you attend interview on Friday in the city

            Me, I’m on holiday in Greece

            Agent, you should fly back early it’s only job I have on my books

            Me, what’s the rate

            Agent, £300 inside IR35

            Me, not bad if hourly rate

            Agent, that’s a day + 2 hours overtime

            Me, ok I’ll fly back, flights booked (was pulling his plunker, have trurtle island booked for Friday)

            Agent 2 hours later, interview cancelled - sorry mate

            Me, lol

              That's a new one. I've heard of a few 'Monday to Friday, 9-6'

                Thanks. I can commute into London although it does make for an early start.

                Wish I could offer some pearl of wisdom but someone I used to work with noticed I was still looking on LinkedIn and someone he was working with left. On its own a bit of luck but having chased down hundreds of lost causes in the last few months I was probably due it.

                    So I've managed to secure a new contract & start tomorrow. Rate is a bit less than I wanted & travel will cost me an arm and a leg in the short term, but beggars can't be choosers at this point. Also got one more in the pipeline which I'm hopeful for as it's local, but I suppose this one will keep me out of trouble for a while! I'm happy

                      I just quoted an extra £150 a day for any days I have to spend in London.
