      If you genuinely think this is worth pursuing go for it, and 8-12 months down the line if you don't like it you can always come back to contracting if you prefer this.

      Good luck.

      Edit: To add, you will also get back 3 or 4hrs per day which can be spent on self-learning new things or whatever you enjoy doing.
      Problem is with a 3 months notice which you will undoubtedly have after 6 or more months it will be virtually impossible to find a contract

        No it won't.

        You give your notice in an a month before you are free start looking for contracts.

          If it is how you have presented it then, imho, you would be a fool not to take it.

              Just to bring closure to this thread folks I have indeed accepted the perm role, am keeping the Ltd open until the end of the tax year as by then I will have an answer to the eternal question from the Clash (will I stay or will I go...), but 100k perm WFH with options mean I may be waving goodbye for good in a few months time 😢

                Yeah but come on not every hiring manger is NLUK

                  I did exactly that, 3 months notice, resigned chilled for 2.5 months and then found my first contract role 😎

                      Congrats Slip. I think it's the right decision, certainly if my experience is anything to go by. If you get to learn new tech then it'll put you in good stead for the future.
