      "Java Developer

      Swindon (SN1)
      £45 - £55 per annum + plus benefits"

      After tax, you're looking around 50p a week!
      Better than this one:
      SQL Server Database Administrator (SQL Server DBA)
      Swansea, Wales - £30k - 40k per year
      Permanent

      A good mix of the following is desirable:

      Experience in troubleshooting and resolving database integrity issues, performance issues, blocking and deadlocking issues, replication issues, log shipping issues, connectivity issues, security issues etc
      Experience in Performance Tuning, Query Optimsation using Performance Monitor, SQL Profiler and other related monitoring and troubleshooting tools.
      Knowledge of SQL Server tools
      Experience of working with and supporting big data clusters
      Experience with Hadoop and Spark technologies
      Experience with Cloud database technologies
      Experience in performing DR tests
      Expert experience in implementing operational automation
      In return you will receive a salary of between £30,000 and £40,000 per annum plus an excellent benefits package and a great working environment (including free parking!).


      I'm mean hey .. free parking!

        Yeah, but don't forget you get to reside in, errm, Swansea. Who could possibly turn that down ( apart from anyone with a brain cell )?

          The free parking alone makes this a great opportunity.

            Maybe free parking is a way of saying that your ass will be dragged on site as soon as the restrictions have been lifted. Which by the looks of it, we seem to be already past that point and restaurants at least are using the “measures” only to show how swanky they are.

                Definitely; as I reported, that's stage two after the targeted search doesn't turn up enough people.

                  I think there's another part to stage 2.. Pimps are also posting contracts as Linkedin updates which appear in your content feed, provided you've added some pimps that is...
                  This is completely free for them, and it'll be picked up by contractors who they've previously added, not randoms.

                    I follow a few recruiters and they did that in pre-pandemic days too. I would click like (or whatever) if the role had some relevance to people in my network to help it be visible to any who may be looking.

                      I do similar and call out to specific contacts where I know that they'd be suitable.
