    Why do you 'refine by salary range' when really it should be 'hourly rate' range? Unless, of course, the expectation is that all these outside IR35 workers are salaried

    The Salary filter also doesn't work properly. How does selecting £20-30 an hour return a gig offering £900-1100 a day? That assumes you're working 30 hours a day if you're on £30 an hour and charging £900 a day...

    The keyword search facility needs working on, but I thought the interface was significantly better than JS

    So, thank you Andy for sharing the link!
    Congratulations!

    Quite.

    In terms of ease, it is the only platform I will look at; the belief being that most, if not all jobs are pasted across the same top four or five platforms.

    And of them, JS still works for me. Indeed the older of the two 'views' is what I use. Sticking a job advert up should follow the same ideas as a piece of card in the Post Office Quick Ads window; a cursory scan should be all you need to commit to, to see if it worth digger a little deeper.

    Not unreasonably they just said, stick 'Outside' in the additional criteria box and 'that'll cover you.' And that is what I did.

    I'd agree that LinkedIn is a great place to be found, but jobboards do serve a purpose for keeping an eye on the market and being alerted to new roles.

    Craft a half decent LinkedIn profile and I've not been on a job board in years

    Both of them look pretty awful the first time you land on them. Also the first one is already duplicating roles. The few I looked at are duplicated on the 29th Jan and 2nd of Feb which already turn me off and there are fewer roles on the second yes but some on there that aren't in the first either.

    So just like many of the other scraping services out there be casting a casual eye over both but neither will be close to the go to solution.

    I must admit an IR35 search isn't that important to me either. By the time I've narrowed down the roles that I'm suitable for there are so few I can review each one to check IR35. It's not really a factor for me personally either. If the role is good and suits me I'd take an inside one so putting an outside IR35 option actually narrows the field too much.
    I've fed that back to them! Thanks NLUK. PS there are lots of jobs Inside (and undetermined) if you follow this link. https://freelanceruk.co.uk/jobs/

    X years in and still the big sites (even ones that only really cater for the UK market) don't offer what is a very obvious filter.
