          I think you made a good decision based on the current contracting climate and maybe more importantly with one eye on future IR35 changes.

          It all depends on what you want most from work/contracting - money, skills development, work/life balance or happiness? I contract to allow more time off each year but my income has worked out a bit lower than I planned.

          During a contract last year, I turned down the chance to go perm at the client. Whilst the salary was fairly good, there was little package so overall I didn't feel I could take the drop in income. I've since started another contract and I really miss the previous role where I was a lot happier. Sometimes money isn't everything (though it helps!)

              You'll find it's more that the money but the lifestyle and freedom that contracting gives over permiedom. For me, there is always light at the end of the tunnel for a contract, so i know I can always look forward to leaving if the role/client is pants. Not having this in a permie job would be quite stressful for me at least after so many years in the contracting game.

              Only you will know though what works for you.

                I left before my probation was up. You should know by then.

                  i have recently been approached about a perm role working along side a mate of mine. Good company, good tech etc. Offering 100k plus stock, WFH mostly . I normally contract out at 550-650 a day which is more but doesn't factor in perm benefits etc and I'm commuting 3/4 hrs a day on average, what does the learn-ed panel say? Take it or stick to contracting? It may be worth a punt IMO
                  550-650 normally translates to 80K in the perm world. This is a no brainer for u.

                    Both what they say.

                    I've done it a couple of times for a 100k base + shares. I've found that overtime that's grown, with my last gig getting to 250k a year with all the shares/benefits. Once you reach that point though you feel like you've become owned.

                    Anyway, nothing to lose.
