    100k perm + options its a Punt?

    Afternoon all

    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

    How much will the 100k be in 5 years (i.e. salary progression)?

      No brainer for me. Take it, give it 6 months and see and then go from there.

        Take it, if it works out great, if it doesn't then back to contracting - you're not losing out by doing it
        I'm perfect, in a very specific and limited way.

          For the perks that will no doubt come along with that and the WFH I'd absolutely take that.

            If you believe hammond is going to introduce the public sector IR35 'changes' to the private sector on the 22nd (although implementation would likely be April 2018) then Id say go for it.

              If you have children who are of child benefit age, factor that into any cost consideration.

                Thats what I'm thinking, treat it as a 6 month contract, if it works out great, if not nothing lost really...

                    Also savings interest, childcare vouchers, ability to take money out of your company at a sensible rate... but on the flipside, pension, holidays, healthcare, equity and maybe even paid sick leave...
