    Out of interest what sector do you work in?

    I work in financial services and a lot of the banks seem to want people back in the office. I am lucky in that I work from a shared desk on the trading floor and the bank would rather it is occupied by a trader or salesperson than a contract developer.

        I am receiving lots of approaches for outside roles through service providers at rates at least £100pd below market.

        Agents say there is no scope for higher rates so I guess the client will either be unable to fill the role or end up with a complete chancer.

          Welcome to the world where a contract is "outside IR35" because the client wants to be cheap.
          merely at clientco for the entertainment

            The thing is the service providers in question have such a poor reputation that they surely have to offer a premium.

                Nope, even before that 80% of gigs I would go for are inside IR35, that is still the same.

                Pimps are still lying about the status of some gigs.

                War chest slowly going down.

                Clients are still wanting someone to do three people's work yet outside gig rates have tanked.

                Full of the joys of spring me.

                I look forward to your all knowing and likely sarcastic and unhelpful reply.

                  Russia is a big source of offshore developers - some of them pretty good - so I wonder if it might have a knock-on. Mostly at the lower end AFAIK though (Upwork etc) so likely more a trickle effect if at all.

                    I have received noticeably fewer calls from recruiters over the past two weeks

                      I think we possibly got what we wanted - the companies stopped taking the easy advice of the 'consultants' and actually made their roles outside of IR35, in name and in spirit. Everybody wins.
