    Yeah, judging by the many job specs I've read the majority want you to be in the UK. A small number of companies have a more liberal approach and clearly state in the job specs you're free to be based anywhere as long as you are within 1-2 hours from UK timezone.

    One reason they want you in the UK, but this applies mainly to permie roles, may be in regards to sending hardware. I don't know, maybe they can't/don't want to go through the hassle of sending laptops to Europe. Who knows..

      Please stop trolling the forums.
      You're now changing your story to say that rather than thinking of travelling, you already are, and now the contracts are disappearing.
      Shock, horror, if clients recruit a resource in the UK, they expect a resource in the UK unless told otherwise. Someone who sleeps in a tent or a hostel with a client laptop is a security risk. The client can't insure for you being in NFA. You won't have business insurance for NFA.
      Plenty of reasons why they won't want to employ you at UK rates for an unreliable offshore resource.

        Having just been de-boomed I will be taking a closer look at the market.

        I might take a seasonal Christmas job. Already ruled out getting a HGV licence.

              Security for 1.
              A general dislike of any risk of overseas tax offices asking awkward questions for another.

                Polite and cheerful? You've met me; do I meet those criteria?

                  I'm sure you can turn it on for the interview, or turn up pissed. You were actually quite tolerable when you were drunk.

                    That was exactly the point the recruiter raised. Apparently the client said no because of security. I told him I can't see how it can be a higher security risk whether I'd be working remotely in Brighton, which would be authorised as remote work, or if I'm in the South of France which they are refusing.

                      Huh? Are you really that clueless?

                      It's that level of idiocy that keeps Dave B raking the dollars in.
