2 out of the 3 contractors in this office have just had a phone call from our agent telling them that they will no longer be required... now I'm sitting here staring at my mobile, why is it always on a Friday. :(

I really like it here, its been 2 years and close enough to home not be bothered about expenses, it wouldn't normally bother me but we're expecting a baby and I really wanted to get past that before the prospect of working away from home comes about. I've heard that out of a total of 15 across site 6 are staying so fingers crossed ...it hasn't rang yet, I feel sick :sick

Sounds like you wanna be a permie :p

Nah seriously no contractor should be afraid of being let go, just means another chapter in the story.

I know what you mean, though, a little bit of stability is nice, just not essential.

I've been expecting that call for a week or so. :rolleyes: I don't mind too much: I could do with a break, I have a bit of a plan B in the works that I could do with putting some effort into, and the market for what I do seems pretty healthy.

Yeah i would call them, no point in sticking head in sand if you are up for the chop. Best get it over with fast

And if you are not up for the chop when you will regret worrying over nothing for so long

Bluebird I'll PM you the client, I don't want to divulge it publicly as I don't know how many of those affected will be reading.

Hope it works out for you. Just been through that and managed to survive the cull.
