    Better to give them a course on why to avoid contracting.

    I would tell them to save their money. They've missed the boat and if they only want to go contracting for the money they only have 2 years of it left.

    Those not in it for the money will find at the beginning they will be the same financially as permies, if not worse off, but they won't have appraisals/ will have a choice over which contracts to apply for/have their own *very* niche skill.

    But for your average newbie, the message will be - don't bother.

    Disappointed by the initial response

    This was my million dollar (or pound sterling) idea.. This was my escape route from all this gloom of contracting..

    No worries, I will think about something else!
