    Default Wtf?

    Having just been turned down for a Test Management role on the grounds of being 'too senior' (read; expensive), I see that the same clientco is hiring a 'Junior Technical Project Management Support Assistant'.

    Is there a conspiracy to waste money instead of hiring competent people?

    Perhaps all they wanted was a 'Junior Technical Project Management Support Assistant'. Making coffee at the office isn't all it's cracked up to be.

    No, but I'd do it for 75 euros per hour.

    Rule Number 1 - Assuming that you have a valid contract in place always try to get your poo onto your timesheet, provided that the timesheet is valid for your current contract and covers the period of time that you are billing for.

    I preferred version 1!

    Your OP implied they had a bit less in mind.

    I can't make coffee.

    Yes, but it's real name is probably something like bonus protection scheme, oops sorry, I mean shareholder value.
