    We live in unusual times with WFH and the return to offices and I don't think the market will settle down for a few years.

    The market is really quite good atm. I’m being a bit picky on rates, no discounts and still getting interviews. Plenty of low ballers still out there offering lockdown rates but they’ll figure it out soon.

    This thread may not have many contributors but i bet its being read by an awful lot of people.

    Because these boards are pretty much dead - same dozen or so people posting, with the odd newcomer actually asking a question.

    I forgot to charge my phone, so I am getting no calls and thus the market is dead

    Someone further up asked about contract PM roles in the City Of London, they have been steadily been moving these out of London for years, can't see that market getting any better tbh and it was in a poor state prior to the pandemic because of this.
    id move to the states for that money
