    You guys are all spot on..

    I haven't yet heard back from them, and I think that perhaps the rate shenanigans might have only been a proposal from recruiter (not sure it came from hiring manager). So we shall see.

    I'm going to hold powder and see what comes back and decide then.

    Market is kind of good at the moment, so i'm not really sweating just yet.

    In thinking more about this engagement, looks like they don't have much experience with contractors. So in reality, the contract could actually be the ultimate deal break.

    They'll probably take a permie contract and i'll have to have vast swathes of it re-written, which they probably won't want. Any let's cross that bridge if it comes.

    Thanks folks.

    Sorry, we all seem to have just glossed over this bit...

    Really? Can I ask what niche you must be in to flagrantly defy all others' comments. (Minor humour)

    Of course, very happy for you. Hope it all works through. Let us know.

    Probably offtopic but for developers and Solution Architects the Dynamics 365 / Power Apps market is booming.

    Were it not for the ISV plans I have finding a job would be very easy.

    I'm a developer and it seems there are still some roles on offer. I hadn't noticed, but a friend mentioned to me that he has noticed a down tick.

    That said, I think he seeks a higher rate than I.

    Soo.. the consultancy was stringing me along all week and they have finally let me know that the "client has pulled the role".

    That is regardless of the fact that I saw the consultancy had re-advertised the role on Monday.

    Well they obviously got somebody else for a bit cheaper.

    Let's put the market to the test now

    Really? I see roles come up every once in a while, but that's probably just because I do a search for anything with "SQL" . The developer roles seem to be around £400 and up. Is that right?

    More importantly, is it hard to learn?

    Haha yea perhaps. But it was weird. I had previously applied there and they were really happy with my tech. This time around they didn't even ask much tech stuff, the interview was more of a "chemistry type" thing with the partner..

    That's why I am inclined to think it was a rate thing. Usually I would assume they got somebody they thought better skilled, but this time I have little reason to think that.. oh well

    I am not ignorant to the fact there will always be people better than I.
