    Much like being asked to meet an agent in person, nothing ever seems to come of these interactions. You start to filter them out after having given the benefit of the doubt too many times.

    What's the end-game here? The big Indian outsourcers continuing to use these shell companies to keep the Tier 2 Visas flowing until someone at the Home Office reads this thread and does an investigation ?
    I had 5 of these so called agencies call me about the same role in September. Some aren't on the list above.
    All UK phone numbers, all Indian sounding agents, most with poor quality lines, sounded like they were reading from a script and not well spoken English. Checked all of them out and they have offices in UK and India.
    Client was Hexaware, Indian global consultancy.
    Given my CV was such a perfect match I received no calls from any of the usual domestic agencies.
    It was like CV keyword bingo and I'd won. My CV was put forward at a negotiated rate, but no interview was ever offered. Didn't smell right at all. Whats the point of even applying via these guys if you can't ever win?

    Could this have been a Resident Labour Market Test? Is there any way to find out next time I get one of these calls? I'd certainly like to raise a flag if they are gaming the system.

    Dunno. Why do you want to know?

    Just to return the love from a recent experience with one such company (who are, purportedly, experts in GDPR) I issued a GDPR request via their Web form. Nothing. Trawled up the e-mail address of their DPO. Message bounced. Called their main office. What's GDPR? Explain. Who do you want to speak to? I was hoping you could help with that since you are experts. Eventually, I get another address. Nothing. In an alternative universe... Next e-mail on its way to ICO. A recent deal with a seller of a fleet with no ships comes to mind.

    So you also think it is shadow contracting as I thought.

    The last investment bank I contracted for was well over a decade ago. LOL

    Money is money though ego I will get in contact with Resource Solutions and throw the line out with them instead.

    I got a call today from Adroitpeople (Heathrow) representing InfoSys working for Deutsche Bank.

    It sounded all good to be.

    The contract rate I want.
    The contract skillset I put in my CV
    The contract length is a reasonable 6 months

    The Job Description is skimpy at best ... so I asked the recruiter to send me ASAP the full job description PDF or Word document , because Deutsche Bank / UBS / Bank of America are usually very good with 3 to 4 pages of A4 of exactly what they want.

    * department, division of the bank
    * about the bank
    * project and delivery type
    * job position
    * skillset they are searching
    * diversity and culture

    I await the full JD ...

    Have they actually changed their (shadow-learn-extract-bin-the-expert) business practices in the last year for Indian recruitment and consultancies? Anyone dealted with Adoitpeople or InfoSys recently?

    Why not drop Resource Solutions at DB a note about the role and see if you can bypass all that jazz? Do you have a contact there from what sounds like previous work there?

    DB are apparently waiting on the/a budget before they'll issue IR35 determinations btw.
