    Dunno about anyone else but I've had more calls about gigs in the last week than I've had in the last two years and I don't even have my linked in flagged as looking. I've had four this week, three were right up my street and one standard key word mess up that's clearly not for me.

    Granted all three are inside and two of them were abysmal rates. We are talking worse than my average rate and inside... but still it's work. If I was outside to inside I would have had no issues leaving and taking one of these.

      Judging by the number of devs leaving our place over the last month, it looks like the boom times are back!

        Things definitely seem to be picking up on the perm and FTC front. I know several people who've got new roles in the last two weeks and a few more who suddenly started getting multiple interviews across different disciplines.

        I had a call yesterday about doing a bit of ad hoc work on a project with a major IT services provider and also started to see more roles come up that I want to go for.

          I am now employed myself in the last month, but I suddenly started getting calls and LinkedIn requests.
          Musical chairs are happening and it is good that people are reassessing their lives. Good luck to all of you looking for work.
          I suspect there are a very small contracts out there that offer true Outside IR35 though (https://offpayroll.org.uk/).

              Offpayroll send out quite a comprehensive list of outside jobs every day. I guess you may think it's limited if they're not in the area you work it.

                    You were offered 3 roles in one week? Nice problem to have.

                      “getting calls” and watching people leave are not good indicators of a strong market. Most of the people i have seen leave in the past month are because IR35 negotiations broke down.
