        That's why they are desperate - they can't pay the market rate.

              But with the number of people arriving in the UK on Skilled Worker Visa's says otherwise.

              Or is it ploy by the employers to show they are not able to fulfill the role and then get cheap labour in?

                What?

                That is not what I am seeing at all.

                Your mileage may vary... which is why your comment is silly in the first place.

                  The job I was supposed to start on 16 May is still dragging its heels. Two more potential clients sniffing around. Will take the one that is first to get a contract drawn up. All in different industries that I've not worked in before.

                    tempted to take a perm role, what would a perm role paying £100k tempted you away from? A £400 outside contract?

                      I lied about taking the first to offer I got an offer from one client and told them they'd have to wait while I finished talking to the other. Now waiting on the second client to make a decision.
