      There seem to be an increased activity from the Indian agencies
      About 75% of them call from 020 3 numbers. I have now about 100 blocked numbers in that range and can see lots of calls from those numbers tried to reach me over the past week, the annoying thing is that they can still leave voice messages even when they are blocked and they keep calling from new numbers.

          First of all block the agent in your Linkedin

          You will now be spammed by Indian agencies for the rest of your life (they don't do GDPR, one claimed they did, but when I tried to follow the link to their unsubscribe it didn't work)

          You receive call and email at the same time about a certain role
          you refuse
          next agency calls about the same role and email at the same time
          Repeat the above a couple of times

            The big clue is always a request for upfront details in the job advert:

            Full name:
            Date of Birth:
            VISA:
            Passport:
            Right to work in the UK:


            Absolute minimal bare job specification (especially from banking clients).
            I remembered that the job specs from Deutsche, RBS, Lloyds etc ran to 4-8 pages of PDF / Word with the culture, inequality.

            If I said £700 per day is the limit, then they counteract: how about £650, please would you reconsider?
            If I said £600 per day is the limit, then they counteract: how about £550, please would you reconsider?
            If I said £500 per day is the limit, then they counteract: how about £450, please would you reconsider?

            So these roles, most of the time, are sourced from a mate / cousin already with a link to hiring team.
            The phone interview or initial discussion is almost certainly with a consultancy or the distant cousin.
            Then if you choose to pursue it, you will have F2F with the consultancy, and then I don't know.
            Are you going to meet staff who actually work for the banking (ultimate) client?

            Also, I wonder what ever would happen, suddenly, if there is a contractual dispute with pay. Are you suddenly going to jump on a jetplane to Pune / Hyderbrad to sort it with the Indian consultancy?

            I realised that I could be biased here, so if someone has the defending position then go ahead and talk ...

              Its going to be fun dealing with these jokers from April 2020. Last time I asked one of them about IR35 and I was simply ignored. They just kept talking about the spec as if reading from a script. Finally "So are you interested in new job opportunity?"

                As if? They are reading fromma script and use funny language such as "I have the job opportunity for you".

                  What SIC codes are used by recruitment agencies / consultancies? Can somebody make a list of all businesses with one of those SIC codes and filter by Indian-sounding names of directors/shareholders?

                  Example:
                  62020 - Information technology consultancy activities

                    No and why? That wouldn't achieve anything other than discriminate people with Indian family names.

                    There will be plenty of proper agencies with Indian directors and staff so it would be unfair to list them based on their name or even nationality.

                      All the tech Indians nationals I know are planning to come over post brexit when new rules kick in - anyone that gets an offer of £35K+ will be most welcome when new visa rules kick in

                      That will be the real end of uk contractor contracting
