Thought that sounded familiar, they phoned me about it. But want
references before they'll put me up for an interview and I'm damned if
I'm going to give 'em free sales leads. Say Dave, can I name you as a
referee?

I try to use as references people who a) aren't contractors and b) have
completely inappropriate skillsets :)

I'd be happy to act as a reference for you Piers, but from what my last
reference told me, the Aerotek verbal references can be quite detailed and
I@m not sure that I'd have all the info they need.

Cheers,

Dave...

I am working through Aerotek too - you can use my name should you wish.

 They appear to have accepted Dave's ref. What are they like as an
 agency? And how are they IR35 wise?

They are OK - you definatly feel that they are a large agency as opposed
to a one man band which has both good and bad points.  Their people do
however have unlimited entertainment expense accounts ;)

IR35 wise they started off being inflexible.  Their people are very target
orientated and for the person that was dealing with me the IR35 thing
was too much trouble for him.  I've been moved and the person I have now
is very flexible - seems you suck and seen between people.

I don't have an IR35 safe contract as the client was unwilling to change
the terms.  They increased my rate by 30% instead.

JOB: At A Very Well-Known Company

2001-01-03 Thread Dave Cross

I posted something like this a couple of weeks ago, but Adam tells me
that they're looking for another person with a similar skillset. If
you're interested, contact Adam, not me.

Cheers,

Dave...

Hi Dave,

Thanks for agreeing to place the job role through the Perl Mongers web site.
As before the job details are below, I would appreciate is if you could
please keep the client confidential at this stage.  If you know anybody
personally who you may feel would like to know more about the job then
please put them in touch with me.

Thanks for your help, hopefully we'll grab lunch in a couple of weeks if
that's okay?

Best regards 

Adam
