      There will be enough others over the next 3 months..

      It may also give tele-conferencing the kick start it never really had.

            After a particularly painful hour last year when the entirety of MS's support team was trying to fix something in my conversation window I'm very careful over using Teams...

            It has a lot of very, very nice features but a few hideous ones.

            There is even a free 6 month trial at the moment see Manage the free Office 365 E1 Trial - Microsoft Teams | Microsoft Docs

                Hope you told them as a contractor you are not under direction and control and will therefor continue to come in bespoke suited and handmade booted. Mont Blanc cufflinks and all...

                    Good idea. I'll see if Primark have any. Can't be affording the luxury threads after IR35

                      "All recruitment has been put on hold because of the impact of Coronavirus is having/could have on the business"

                      WTAF?
                      I have news for you. There's hardly any business which is not impacted by Coronavirus. And it will get worse before it gets better
