    Job titles are weird for US firms. Quite often I come across Hedge Funds & Private Equity firms and their job title for a senior hire (10yrs exp.) is "X Analyst", whereas other firms would call the same role VP, SVP, Manager or Director. Whether job titles matter is debateable, depends on the hiring manager I suppose.

    Come to think of it when I worked as a junior for a European Investment Bank some years ago, my job title was AVP. And I thought, this seems a little odd.

    So was Cowboys vs Aliens once you ignore the sheer stupidity of the idea.

    Is 1 month notice really an IR35 issue for a 6 month gig? 1 month isn't really that long tbh.

    Edit - to clarify I think there may be a chance of success with the FTC but not so much with the outside ir35 gig.
    Ah.. in that case you'd be wrong. They can get rid of you quite legally without breach. So your exercise is pointless.

    Very unlikely they will change notice periods on FTCs. Being a job it's not as flexible as a contract.

    Some people I worked with at the last gig were given notice 6 months into the 18 month FTC.


    18 month gig, 1 month symmetrical notice, via large employment agency.

    6 months in a few were canned...
    Some had been extended beyond the initial 18 months...
    1 left of his own accord (with 1 month notice) midway through...


    So XXmo FTC is just a number.. don't read too much into it! ask for what you want and know what you will take... as with any negotiation.

    Yeah i had an interview at paypal once and they had a senior director who had no direct reports. I always thought that was weird.. what exactly were they directing? Themselves i guess?

    I know in advertising everyone is a director as well.

    And yeah a vp in finance is completely meaningless. İt's just given as part of an annual review without any change in role or responsibility.
