    Question Working or benched?

    Simple question / poll. Are you currently working in a contract, permie job or "inbetween clients" currently?

    Want to get a feel for how many are actually benched contractors. Maybe it is just the unlucky few?

    Although this poll is most likely skewed due to Survivorship_bias

    I work for the IR35 collection dept at HMRC. My annual bonus depends on nailing hard working tax dodgers. Those on the bench, living on the streets or dead need not worry.

    Ad-Hoc projects here and there. Good day rates, but very inconsistent - only have work lined up for another 2.5 weeks

    That's still working. Unless your pay cut was close to 100%, you are still earning a very good living I'm sure.

    Looks like we have 36% unemployment on the forum. If its a microcosm of the wider economy, we are truly fudged.

    That's assuming the people who are not working by choice aren't included and have selected 'other' instead.
