Those roles will likely not emerge for another year as colonies attempt to hoover up excessive numbers of discounted ex-contractors.
    Indeed, while I am still a Senior BA, I had to lose the BA title to get a decent salary (yep, you did read that right...)

    I think you might be right with Capita

    I’ve seen them advertise 6 month FTC for a migration project. I think surely this would’ve been a day rate previously. They are trying to get around the less flexibility to travel by offering any of their offices and some WFH.

    I’ve also seen them advertise a contract in the same field of work but a different project. That one is day rate. But no mention of IR35 plans

    To be completely fair, you can advance your career pretty quickly in the public sector and you could be a senior ba before you're 30, then reach the top of the salary band (45k) in another 3-4 years.

    As a let's say 35 year old earning 45k in a cheap city such as Glasgow, you'd be having a pretty good life. Flats/houses in decent areas don't cost a lot.

    For Edinburgh it's a bit different.

    Lloyd’s of London and Lloyd’s banking group are different companies (surprisingly)

    Can anyone confirm re IR35 and the "Lloyds" rumors - is it Lloyds Banking Group or Lloyds of London Insurance?

    Have a read of this:

    April 2020 changes to off-payroll working for clients - GOV.UK
    Lloyds are absolutely crystal clear on this point. They have categorically stated that they have decided not to determine if roles were previously inside or outside.
