    30 days paid holiday
    35 hours max working week
    Fully subsidised restaurant
    Onsite gym
    Walking distance from home in under 15 mins

    Which I have

    Yes I'm a permie bitch
    I know you said you were paid in sterling but I didn't realise things were that bad.

    I'm easily pleased at my age.
    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.

    75K?
    Seriously? Oh dear. And you voted for Brexit? which will reduce that further.
    Oh dearie me.
    Think I last earned 75K in the 90s.
    Hard Brexit now!

    Default How much?

    A lobotomy.

    Going permie is giving in.

    Better to fail chasing something you really want to do, a plan B, or doing something that benefits humanity or its impact on the world if you must get a 'job'. Never forget that you're alive, and the time left is shorter than you think.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    I learnt my lesson - essentially matched my take home. Money side was exceptional - had a car allowance on top and, to be blunt, at the time my wife was also working full time and we could barely spend the cash (Though we did, which perhaps wasn't all that smart).

    Anyway, after a year I handed in my notice and walked back into the cold. May have just been that job, but the moment I read the contract and saw the holiday days, policies and all that crap I felt I'd made a mistake. So, right now, I'd do everything in my power to avoid it

    More than the money, what I would miss the most from contracting is the freedom.

    Having said that, I can see myself go back to a permanent job only if I can do part-time, say no more than 3 days a week so I can spend more time doing the things I love (hobbies, family and so on..) but still have a chunky enough paycheck.

    For a 3 day a week job, I'd be okay with an annual salary in the £50-60k region, plus the typical benefits (bonus, pension, healthcare,...).

    Hopefully going to happen in the next 5 years.

    In discussions with current role about going perm.

    Money doesn't really matter, it's more the perks and lifestyle that I fight for. In this case the offer of 6 weeks holiday, plus one month a year I can work remotely from a country of my choice swung it for me. I went contracting so I could travel, and this work will let me do that while I am perm, so I am fine with that.
