    Default Boomed!

    Dropped a contact a note a month ago saying I was looking for a change. Had a 15 minute phone interview and was offered a permie role they created for me. Interesting enough but we couldn't make the money work.

    Then they asked if I would do a contract via their Big 4 supplier. I asked if they had a supplier on their list who would take a smaller margin, they found one and the gig is mine. Daily rate is 25% more than current rate and 15% more than previous highest.

    In that case, have five bananas rather than four.

    It's a shame you didn't get the perm role, would be good to get some of that furloughed money come the winter lockdown.

    He had a negative bluety on a quackhandle and was quadraspazzed on a lifeglug.

    I look forward to your all knowing and likely sarcastic and unhelpful reply.

    Thank you all for you kind words and bananas. I did spend a frustrating fortnight refusing to budge on rate while they told me both that my rate is way over the going rate and that the Big 4 Co would charge more than twice as much for someone not nearly as good.
