Re: re: Is it similar over there?

I've been offered (and declined) short-term contracts (defined project) where I would have ended up with a "salary" significantly below that of a permi staff member as the rate made no allowance at all for travel, accommodation or pension.

The agency commented "I wonder if that's why we're finding it hard to fill this position?" when I pointed this out!

Some contractors may get lots of cash, but that's generally not the case outside of financial and various other London-centric posts.
