    Default Is that wage high enough ?

    considering it is not so difficult to get contracts paying 100k per annum where the only responsibility on the contractor is to deliver the work the boss has asked him to do,

    is the goverment's offer of 100k for the post of Senior Government IT Director really enough ?

    The Government is searching nationwide for a high-calibre IT professional to fill the post of senior Director of Government IT Professionalism - a role commanding a likely starting salary of over £100,000.

    Surely to get some really sh1t hot they need to be offering 250k ?

    What is the point of taking such roles with the likley stress and pressure and responsibilities when you can get the same for contracting as a .net developer ?

    **** off you tedious @rse

    Ever considered that the post of Senior Government IT Director might lead to a post of Senior Blue Chip IT Director, which leads to even greater roles earning considerably more than you. So maybe it's worth doing?

    Lay off. Bean's arse is lovely and shiny and black and not at all tedious. I think about it all the time.
    PS I could do that job.

    100k per annum
    That sounds like Permie-speak. MF is right though, you should be doing a bit more than delivering on time for £400 a day (which is contractor-speak for £100k a year )
    Not something which is ever likely to trouble you though Beansey.

    Default ahh

    aye Chavs,

    that's because people like me focus on getting the job done instead of wasting time like you noddies always trying to demonstrate added value and any other nonsense you can dream up to hide your technical inadequacies

    Good answer Spod.

    It's all very New Labour and permie to think of "added value" and "fair rates" and "don't you feel guilty about charging £400/day to knock up some code etc when the permies are getting £30K p.a."?

    Errr, nope. :hat

    Probably because the contractor on £400/day is FIXING all the @#%$ up's caused by £30K p.a permies and our friends offshore, which makes his/her rate seem quite a bargain to the bean counters and shareholders. :hat THAT'S added value.

    But the little children are starving. I don't know how anyone who earns more than £5/hr can live with themselves.
