    This is a extract from a ad on jobserve working in a Government dept.

    Experience of ...... would also be beneficial as would the personality to pass your knowledge to permanent members of the team.


    This implies contactors are guarded anal coonts.

    Not quite. I would suggest that the personality required to pass on any skills beyond the ability to spend 2 hours making coffee to permies is that of a primary school teacher.

    Mr SAS you posted while I was crafting my own response...

    No, it implies they want you to train their staff. If you don't want to do it, don't take the job. At least they are being up front about it.
