I think the market is just flooded with overqualified candidates atm who are redundant etc.

    Good news is after 2 weeks of looking for perm roles, I have secured a new role, fixed term (which is what I want) so in X months time when the market is better I can look again (probably for senior perm roles if I'm honest).

    Thanks for the advice all.

    Don't you mean this is the new market

    Less contracts available
    More competition
    Various things scaring clients into moving the work inside (even though that may create more issues than it solves in a lot of cases).
    merely at clientco for the entertainment

    With IR35 hitting shortly after the seasonal dip in the middle of covid I put two 'x's in there if not change to years. Particularly for the less skilled/qualified end of the market.

    TF I'm old now. Wouldn't want to be coming into this now.
