    Thanks for your guidance these last couple of days, if I can be candid, it's been abrupt but very useful

    I will phone QDOS tomorrow to ascertain if they will insure me for the GSK gig (still waiting on a concrete offer) , if they don't I will assume there's a BIG risk and not move forward but if they do insure me, do you suppose I should entertain the idea of moving forward?
    The contract job market is super quiet in my remit and I really want to be billing / utilised as much as I can be prior to April 2020 when the whole landscape changes

    Also, another simple question, can I keep my limited company open while operating via an umbrella for the 6 month gsk gig?

    It's never been a requirement from any job agencies.
    I always thought IR35 insurance was optional not a must have

    No. IR35 insurance is not optional, it's not mandated, but you'll need it if you contract in the UK and want to off-load any investigation to a professional. It's personal protection. Get some.
