        So inside or FTC then? IR35 status is as important as all the gubbins you'll be doing in this day and age.

            I've not discussed any further with the agent, as I'm currently engaged in another project.

            However, I don't see anything here that would specifically rule it out as an Outside role. Its managing a single project, albeit with multiple countries being deployed. The devil will be in the detail / working arrangements.

              Is there anyone about who knows the ins and outs of Service Now - particularly around the CMDB - and is willing to go onsite for a London based gig?

              I've been approached twice by agencies who are struggling to find the right person as the client is a bit fussy.

              It's apparently outside IR35 and paying £495.

              PM me if interested and I'll give you the job spec and agency details.

                The other reason will be that is a low rate for Service Now especially given the actual job spec...

                  Yep, I agree with eek there LM - that's at least a hundred off the mark.

                    I have no doubt. Apparently they're refusing to budge on a huge heap of things and it's been a month since the job first came out and yet the client won't compromise.

                    Thought it might be worth sharing nonetheless.

                    I had a really good chat with the agent that called me today about it and I told her I was offered £500 by a different agency. She was surprised because apparently all the agencies the client has given the job to are on the same margin and given the same rate to offer.

                      I'd just wish them luck.
