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

    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 😢

    Only if you want to take the risk to be on the bench for a while

    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.
