  9. On Call - week = half day TOIL

    Probably crappiest offer I've ever had. 1/2 day TOIL for one week on call. Know permies get more than 1/2 days pay for weeks on call. If permies got the same % then they'd probably get £70 for the week.

  13. SC Clearance - 12 Months and still in progress

    12 Months ago I applied for my SC clearance and the portal is still in progress today! How long could it take till I get an answer? Is there less chance of getting Clearance, the longer it drags on for? Are there cases where the status stays in progress indefinitely?
