    Far more useful than that job nonsense, seeing as there'll be no jobs soon
    I did notice, most of the checkout people were older 60+ ladies - they will be 1st to peg it

      Aldi was absolutely rammed this morning. Queues down the isles. Never seen anything like it. Much worse than Xmas.

        I never did trust just-in-time - probably because the supermarkets around me randomly had empty shelves of items anyway.

          How do I know? - Because I just did that!
          I am a Tester currently in an outside IR35 role so it is possible.

            Back on the market - not expecting to get a sniff pre-April 6th but applying regardless

            Lots of £200 inside IR35 work about!

              Are you the only tester in the organisation, otherwise are you doing the work permanent staff do?
              merely at clientco for the entertainment

                £200 is the new £500

                  Trying to get clients to understand that if you choose to put roles inside IR35 (and it is a choice) then you should also choose to take on the additional cost in doing so.

                  There is an option to keep your outgoings where they were previously - make the role outside of IR35.

                  At the moment they seem to be adopting the position of doing one without the other.

                    Apart from the exceptions where the role requires DV/SC clearance etc.

                    I used to be in Testing including Test Automation (in all application tiers - Front end, Middleware and Backend + traditional and Agile methodologies such as BDD/TDD)

                      And they can keep doing so because most contractors are keeping their heads down and accepting the terms.

                      Unfortunately, it takes 2 to tango.
