    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?

    It’s too early for conspiracy theories but would it be surprising if some of them were also connected in some way to big indian outsourcers?
    Huh. What would the revenue show?

    Having the same operating model doesn't mean the revenue will be the same...

    Greetings, I also am kind of curious - as they are not using this trick to be represented by UK agency that recruits for them. Wipro in this case is utterly weird, - I once had like 8 interviews (for Germany) and at 8th one they said that actually they need architect not system engineer.... Also what is very interesting they have this job in Zurich for a bank that is being advertised over and over again for like 3 last years, they call, you answer, they send some details and nothing happens, then again someone else from their agency calls - you answer and the cycle repeats....

    I've noticed a rise in calls from Indian recruitment agencies representing yer Wipros etc. I just add a contact for each phone number, file under Ignore.

    • WIPRO
    • HCL
    • Tech Mahindra
    • Infosys

    All companies looking to place contractors across UK, Ireland and often wider EU

Might want to remove from your list as Goldman Sachs & UBS are some of their biggest clients anyone blocking them or hanging up will be potentially losing out on roles with either of those banks! Although when they have called me the rates offered are truly atrocious race to the bottom level........

    What happens if Data Inc UK went bust? Would they, then, pay up, because they are operating over here?
    If the company is actually based in India, isn't that a sunstantial risk for a limited contractor?
