    He shoots.....He SCORES !!!

    Call from the agent 3pm on last day of contract = 30% pay rise, contract starting in 4 weeks = a month off without a care = huge shot of adrenaline = happy days for me !!!
    Thought I was going to have to go permie as well and now I don't it is great although I will miss the annual reviews, team-building events, 'challenging' objectives and the dangle of a promotion carrot sometime far in the future designed to keep you in line.
    It seems clear I ROCK...
    Good luck to all on the bench, I am just visiting...

        Don't count the chickens yet. How many of us have started a contract only to find out it was total sh1te? Come back a couple of weeks after the start and let us know.

        Congrats all the same

          there can be no worse feeling for a contractor than having to come to terms with the fact that against one's wishes but in one's best interests one will have to become a permie for some time

          I can understand your happiness

              Congrats. Nice timing to secure a new one (and I hope it is secured) on the last day of an old gig.

                  cheers all - aware there is still time for things to go norks up as these things sometimes do. Job was quite a stretch from where I am experience wise but managed to swing it at the 2 interviews so it has given me a lot of confidence.
                  I will keep an ear to the ground for other ones coming up just in case - good advice.
                  Right, time to get a company etc setup !
                  Still time to play some golf - any golfers benched in the North-West up for a game !?
