          I'm right to be offended when someone invites me to apply for this, yes? The quote box evens out the formatting, sadly, which was in a variety of fonts and font sizes.

            What exactly does umbrella rate mean? Is it Dave Chaplin's Smurf rate or something else?

            I'm tempted to play it thick and then ask for the Key information document they should have but won't exist...

                  There are a large amount of high skilled professionals turning to minimum paid jobs sadly at the moment.

                  I had an interview yesterday with an Investment Bank for a 12 month FTC which went really well & they really liked me alot. But at the end of the interview I got the standard "This role has attracted alot of interest, we will be doing more first round interviews over the next few weeks and after that we will be conducting a set of final round interviews."

                  The role needs to start by end of September, yet they're still planning circa 3 weeks of interviews + investment bank on-boarding time (which is always an eternity)....sigh

                  So blatantly obvious that they're going to pick the 2-3 best candidates then take the cheapest option. Maybe if I offer to work for minimum wage, they will cancel the hiring process and send me the contract tomorrow!

                    Quite common at the moment. There is so much spare capacity out there in the workforce, and all available immediately.

                    Its such a contrast to the good old days. I remember agents leaving multiple voicemails and then pleading with me over the phone.. "Please...do you know ANYONE who might be available?".. "what will it take for you to leave your contract?"

                      I miss those days. Most of my old agency contacts are nowhere to be seen at the moment.
