      I've been getting £600+ in the North for the last 3 years. There's more to life than London and IBs.

        Well, I can't speak for IT but, as others seem to be agreeing above, specialist consultancy is the way to go (and potentially WFH too). I doubt this trend in IB will reverse after June 23. There may be more roles available after June, but there are far more fundamental issues in IB. I agree w/ MrMM on compliance though - definitely where I'd be heading if I worked in this area.
        Seeing MrMM tomorrow - we are already on the same wavelength about things like this and potentially will be working together in the future. I've also go my own ideas of specialisation that I've yet to share with him.

          Jeez, you could buy up whole towns with that sort of money and retire aged 30.

            I have only just hooked myself onto the Northern gravy train™ - a remarkable turnaround between Laaaadon rates and Manchester - as contractors we have to follow the money!
            How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don't think

              Not bad, eh, seeing it's a different flavour of the same old rubbish I have been doing for well over 20 years now.

                Looks like London has revealed itself as the dead cesspit it always was. A big giant turd rolled in casino banking glitter.

                Go the North!

                  Not the towns you would want to live in though!

                    Think Leicester and Bradford. Lots of willing tenants to keep you in luxury.

                      Worst rate I have had since 2011 was London. Couldn't get anything else so needs had to.
