From: Piers Cawley Sent: 04 January 2001 09:37 [stuff about a job at Ft.com (oops! promised I'd keep the client's name a secret :) 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.

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. Red
