    Yeah, I wonder how it could be better worded...

    Applied for a role a few months ago and heard nothing back, had a call from one of the pimps on Wednesday, interviewed on Thursday and offered the role there and then. Same rate as current gig, but going from inside to outside IR35. More importantly moving away from testing, back to BA.

    I've been pleasantly surprised with the number of clients (actual and potential) who have made meaningful changes to their practises to make them Outside, more so than they were already.

    Hi. What's the market like for 3rd Line Infrastructure roles? I seem to be getting a lot of emails come through in the past week or so.
