    It must have been the forum title of ContractorUK and the sub-title of Business/Contracts that fooled me into thinking that you were a businessman.

    Now you've made it clear you were a Permie, I understand everything..

    You may want to pay more attention from now on, then.

    Despite being called contractorUK, you'll find that in here there are just as many permies are there are contractors. It's also very varied...there are contractors who apply for permie roles and permies who apply for contracts.

    It's not just black or white and you should learn to be more inclusive

    As a long-term Permie failure, you should just gather the names of the contractors on this site who disagree with you and report them to your manager!

    Just signed off on a new contract with a previous client after being benched since March.

    Been a struggle to get the contract tweaked, missed the first start date and went to the wire for the next (tomorrow). Sorted now anyway.

    Good bunch of people to work with too. Local but 100% remote due to CV19.

    Three months initially but will boost the company coffers nicely thank you.
