    Today I have received 4 calls from Smartedge Solutions, spoofing various London numbers, followed up by 3 emails from differently-named individuals, and yet with identical email templates. All this about 5 mins after I uploaded my cv on Jobsite. I have accepted an offer, but the QDOS and client status determination process was taking so long I thought I'd better start a Plan B. Next stage of status determination has been completed now, so I hurriedly hid my profile.

    All of this is a fecking nightmare when you are job hunting

    True to form, the email has a list of questions as long as your arm.

          Indeed. They do a lot of SC work as well so that rules out Indian consultancies.

            They are crap - but there are a French firm with various UK bits and pieces that they've bought over the years.

                entertained the conversation until it reached to the rate part where I was told the rate is €315.
                And then hang up exactly as the five was coming out of her mouth.

                  Just had a call from Hirexa offering a role for £371 inside IR35, when I said too low, £700 minimim they went off and called back saying yes we can offer that.

                  When it seems to good to be true, it is!

                    They just want your cv to strip someone else's name on it. Or to find reasons why you are to expensive and for them to ship someone in.
                    They are never going to offer that.

                      2/3 of my phone calls now are from these agencies, always from India and I can barely make out what they are saying with the accent and bad connections.
