    There was a guy posting last week I think that was infrastructure with only 3 year experience out of uni. This would be the ideal role for someone like that. Where you go afterwards would be the problem though.

    I did a 2 day gig once. For a shed load of money. Very interesting seeing how small city brokers work.

    Pretty carp even for normal rates in the engineering sector.

    Short term contracts usually pay much better. Got one once when some idiot erased or corrupted part of a military simulator I had worked on in my full time days. There's a tip, when you're working on an important piece of software, insert a hack you can trigger to screw it up. They'll pay you a lot of dosh to come back and fix it.

    PS AS long as they don't know you did it of course.

    I'd consider it, but not for a penny less than £197 "per day" !

    Talk about taking the outright mick!
    i would like to know the maths behind how did they reach a figure of 196.73
    probably a complex mathematical eqation

    I once agree £600pd cost to client with client and then was directed to Hays who applied a 5% markup (so divided 600 by 1.05) leaving me with 571.43.

    So I guess this is something similar to arrive at a round number. Alternatively they have divided a permie salary by a number between 208 and 245 or similar.
