    I feel so stupid to have given these people so much of my time. They have been the only responses I have been getting for months and my phone has been ringing off the hook from them. By now, it is obvious that they are playing some sort of game : they don't appear that interested in working within the expectations of the UK, or even Europe.

    They call you in a hurry for an urgent interview and then go radio silence until they have yet a new position for you. Lately some of the British agencies are on the same hustle on behalf of TCS/Indra/Wipro . From now on, I will bounce them. Very sad for them to be doign this in this day and age.

    Indian so-called recruitment agencies working on behalf of TCS, Infosys, Wipro etc are actually not that interested in recruiting somebody in the UK. They want a CV (as evidence of that they have spoken to you) and the rate (so that they can use that as evidence of that you are too expensive). They have to try finding somebody within the UK for a few weeks before they are allowed (in many cases) to bring somebody in from India on an ICT visa, and they must show evidence of having tried and failed.

    I was today called by somebody representing TCS for a senior agile coach role in the Netherlands - at €350 per day, max, all-inclusive.
    Yep! Currently being got by this Scam. I am at second interview and for weeks, they went through a bizare phase of sabortaging their own interview process . They would give me short notice time slots and then cancel . We finaly have a date set for next week, but I am really not motivated at all. It feels like I am being set up.

    MindTech

    Has anyone heard of MindTech? Looks like a foreign outsourcing company.

    I wasn't asking why you'd ignore them.

    I was asking why it's wrong to not say there's a consultancy. And if you're working for the consultancy of course they're going to interview you. This is standard.
