Re-scan passport...

I have a passport scan that I took some time back and often need to send to agents when starting a new contract. However, I'm now being asked for a scan of the photo page (which is what I had) together with the inside and outside of the first page of the passport. This is something to do with the EA...

Re: best dog supplements

In my experience the best supplements are human ones. My neighbour gives his dog vitamins and supplements meant for humans, and the vet basically has said that's okay.

Re: Christmas gift ideas...

Rich, Funny that you should mention the Pandora bracelet as she sort of made a hint at one last night. She's been helping a friend out who owns a Jewelers, just during the Christmas period. Anyway, the short of it is that she can get 30 to 40% off products as staff discount, so she can definately ha...

Christmas gift ideas...

Yep, it's that time of the year again, and I have no idea what to get the wife, again. If I ask her she might hint at something small, like perfume, but never lets on what she really wants. So, I was wondering what you guys are planning on getting the wife and kids for Christmas. All ideas are great...

Re: Is the SAP market picking up?.

Well, I've just ventured back into the contract market and found it very easy. I was expecting to be on garden leave for some time after handing in my resignation letter. The contract market seems reasonably busy in the UK, on the CRM side anyway. I moved across to CRM five years back, for my sins. ...

Has anyone worked for Centrica or Birmingham City Council?

I'm looking at possibly working for either the Birmingham City Council (Capita) or Centrica (Contract).

Has anyone had any experience with working with these companies?.

Re: Is the SAP market picking up?.

Well, I've been a permie since January this year and I'm only just now venturing back to contracting. To be honest I found it easier than I thought, but that might have been because my skills are reasonably upto date, which is a first. Having said that, I was looking for both a permanent role and co...

Re: Blackberry Torch

I worked with a colleague at Cap Gemini early last year. He had always used Balckberry's and when I started work there he was sporting a new Blakcberry torch. I sat opposite him and all I could ever here was him cursing it. I think he said the hardware was okay, once you got past the the strange scr...

Re: Massive argument...

Well that's it, I've submitted to using the other umbrella company (Paystream), even though I'm not happy about it.

As my wife says, 'You always take the path of least resistance'. Yes, that's me, although sometimes I do like to put up a fight, just not now. ;)

Massive argument...

I'm just venturing back into contract market and have agreed a contract, rate and payment terms. Then when the paperwork arrives from the agent I am told that I need to use their designated umbrella payment company.

Re: What do you do during 'bench time'

I'm not sure whether you're on the bench while working for a consultacy, or you're a company/self employed?. I was really suprised about how many agencies there are out there. I was finding about two new ones everyday when I finished my contract (last year). The trick is to first find all the websit...
