I've now done 4 months out of a 6 month contract. 2 and a half months left to bill. Will they renew? I'd like to think so but you never know, they're definitely looking for a permanent so that may hold me back a little but we shall have to wait and see. There's actually 2 roles up for grabs in the team, they're now also looking for a data scientist.
It's been good. Lot's of new stuff to learn and for the most part it's been fairly straight forward. I'm enjoying contracting, lots of pay, with none of the politics. I've generally been able to leave on time every night and work from home when needed which has been refreshing too.
