    Depends on what industries the companies you are contracting with work in on whether they have to reference you. They don't reference people for fun.

      Interesting proposition. Could you please expand on the role?

            Contract market suddenly booming, right when I'm about to go permie. Agents have been messaging me on linkedIn for the last 2 days with different contract opportunities. They seem pretty desperate because when I say I'm off the market they ask if I can recommend anyone (which they hardly ever did before).

            The roles they talked to me about are all for public sector clients, all outside ir35 and paying from 350 to 450 a day. Not too shabby to be honest.

                  Out of interest, I did ask if it was inside or outside IR35 from April - no response, but i suspect inside/umbrella, since the day rate says "all in MAX".

                    They don't need to issue an SDS until just prior to the first payment for work done after April 5th - which could be July given how long some end clients take to pay...
