    Default Demand for statisticians is crazy ...

    ...Salaries for permies have reached 6 figures (in GBP) in Switzerland and Germany and are rising fast here.
    One of my mates who's doing bog standard pharma work in Zurich is on the equivalent of £150k (permie)
    And judging from the emails I'm getting this is standard.
    Don't know what it's like in finance.
    Hard Brexit now!

    I know a few actuaries, they do alright.
    While you're waiting, read the free novel we sent you. It's a Spanish story about a guy named 'Manual.'

    Actuaries have always done well.
    I'm talking about people without the years of actuarial training - a simple Masters in Stats is sufficient for the big bucks nowadays. Could be a plan B for one or two on here.

    What's the demand for semi-retired cretins like?
    Three-and-a-half years, two extensions, seven defections, 21 deselections, three prime ministers, countless amendments, two prorogations, one Supreme Court judgement, 66 million Brits losing the will to live and were still at square one...

    Any examples? Current advertised roles? Jobserve, recruitment sites, etc?
    You won't be alerting anyone to anything with a mouthful of mixed seeds.
