    That's common, don't read anything into it. The programme may be slated to last for a couple of years but they'll put people on rolling 3 or 6 month contracts.

        I have never had longer than a six month contract and I don't see anything longer than six months being advertised. Before anyone chips in to highlight their 25 year outside of IR35 contract on £2,000 a day I am not saying it doesn't happen just quite unusual.

          The problem is that the industry is based on 3/6/12 month contracts for no reason at all outside the fact they just want bums on seats.
          When an agent says 3 months but maybe 2 years it means one of two things.

          1) This is a big project, of at least a year but we ant to reserve the right to bin you off without argument if you're crap (yes I know they don't need to wait but it's just how client managers think).
          2) We want a permietractor.

            I've never had an agent say "to be honest they'll have you for 3 months and bin you then", though it does of course happen.

            Extensions aren't guaranteed. Full contract terms aren't guaranteed. You get danger money in exchange

              I don't really take much notice of end dates anymore. Might just be me but clients either run out of money or extend you.

                Normally clients have a rough idea of how long the initial work is.

                And also a client should try and keep a contractor on his toes, too many are freeloading slackers.

                Many contractors think they worth the money just for their skills and experience alone, but don't actually want to do any hard work that actually uses those skills in the contract itself.

                    I was at a client once, and the 6 hours of work I did a week equated to more output than an entire department of people to a week, sometimes you're just a winner winner chicken dinner.....

                      Or take dislike to you.

                      Short contracts extend, long contracts get cut short. The only certainty you have is the day you've just worked, really. (and even then...)
