I am just about to re-enter the workplace as a contractor (temp / interim – however you want to term it.) I am advised by the recruitment agency that this is the route I need to go down. The agency has supplied me with a long list of their ‘approved’ suppliers.
Any tips? What should I be looking for? I am not interested in aggressively avoiding tax (I am not sure that exists anymore via this model anyhow) I just want someone who will pay me and offer some benefits i.e. be efficient and VFM? Any guidance on fees I should expect to pay etc. would be very useful.
Anyone else done it. Following on from the Ireland thread.
There is definitely something in this as it recognised my older sibling as a match and also a few cousins (mostly second) but it found my sister to be 60% British whereas I was only about 9%.
They also have a category which is Irish / Welsh / Scottish (two of which are apparently not British LOL) of which I am almost 30%.
But I am apparently 45% Western Europe and also quite strongly Scandinavian.
All my grandparents were born in London but being Cockneys / East End I expected to be a bit 'mixed' but WTF. I always get mistaken for Spanish when abroad (<1% apparrently genetically) and I often get mistaken as a Jew, also less tha one percent which surprised me.
I am also apparently trace Polynesian so give me those beads
Any other fans on here. Billy was from the Fulham Court estate which I am guessing (not being from the area) is a bit of a scum pit. By which I mean a genuinely working-class area where most people support the scum, rather than being scum per se.
Always preferred his stuff to Billy Bragg's which would have been the obvious choice for this east Londoner, but I have always have had exotic tastes.
