On the one hand I can say there are going to problems in certain sectors, but there are also opportunities. I've had more calls about contract positions in the last two weeks than I've had for years. For IT (my area) projects are going ahead - but employers want the option of cancelling the project and with it the people hired to deliver. What contracting has always been about. Do the job, no holiday pay / sick pay pension etc - no red tape for the client - just get the job done. I wonder now if the Govt. will finally stop the unworkable IR35 law that various Govts. have been trying to implement since early 2000s.
