    What does your contract (with the new agency) say in terms of..... oh hang on I see a problem here.

    Its unfortunate but an offer is worthless without a contract, lets look at it two ways.

    The contract with your current gig which ends on the 31st October, I would imagine had come clause which allowed yo to give notice. Therefore all parties are abiding with the contract.

    On the other hand, you have an email.........

    Expensive lesson but well done for getting 5 days out of them, as an aside I would keep the contact details of he hiring manager and ping them a message saying when you are looking again please get in touch
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius

    Take the 5 days and see if your old contract will take you back for any of the notice period.

    Do be aware that you could easily lose that incredibly fortunate 5 day payment chasing the agency down a rabbit hole.

    Move on, look for new gigs.

    Thank you all for your advice and for not being too harsh on me.

    Yes, I will take some valuable lessons learnt and adapt my behaviours going forward, as a result of this experience.

    The more contractors I have spoken to, the more I have realised and understood that this behaviour is very common in recruitment however, it's not necessarily a hot topic.

    Thank you again

    Were his lips moving? He's lying.

    And I can guarantee, the agent thought he was doing nothing wrong in all this. He was trying to make sure you were on the hook, ready to join the moment the end client got approval. All that mattered to him was the money.

    At least part of this sentence could also apply to most contractors...
