    Actually, I can. Hays are the intermediary at the moment and are absolutely shocking.

    Meant to be self-billing paid weekly. Some weeks completely missed, others arrive late.


    First time in my contract life I've thought about taking a pimp to court. For now sending chaser emails every other day will have to suffice...

    LONG LIVE THE BULL MARKET!
    In my experience Hays are generally one of the better large nationwide agencies but I've had multiple problems with timesheets and self-billing invoices since they implemented a new system about a year ago. The most annoying is seemingly random deductions of days from invoices. I had to spend two hours last week trying to reconcile invoices against my timesheets and still haven't quite sorted it.

      Market is a hell of a lot better than I thought... I was expecting a Jan start then suddently got 3 interviews on decent rates all outside IR35. Got an offer the same day and then started the following day.

      Not quite £700/day but I think it's enough to feed the family with.....

          To clarify I was referencing the post that mentioned £700/day.... unfortunately rate is a fair bit below that. Hopefully we can keep the heating on through the winter though.

              Having initially been told I was being kicked out just before Christmas like an employee of Better.com I have been extended to the end of March. Then I will be *definitely* finishing this gig (after two years!!).

              Scanning the daily outside IR35 jobs list from offpayroll, there's been some interesting stuff coming up lately. I hope that continues.

                    This is the busiest I've seen it for a while.

                    I applied for 5 or 6 roles which I liked the look of, and have been offered roles for 4 of them with one interview for a 5th.

                    Only issue is letting people down (agents have feelings too apparently).
