    If you want monkeys, pay peanuts. Good specialist contractors are expensive, but can save far more than they cost.
     
  2. Have they offered you that job yet PT? ;-)
     
  3. Utter bollox.
    If you have to get consultants in, it means you`ve sacked/made redundant/let go the wrong staff.

    Don't be ridiculous - I'd only be employed if they were looking for 'very special' consultants :)
     
  5. It's a massive gravy train industry which Government likes as they all have "close relationships" with the companies when they leave office. All very suss.

    Total rubbish.

    These contractors were brought in to assist in the renegotiation of complex commerical contacts. That is way outside the scope of almost all of our Service personnel and nearing the limits for even our better CS commercial staffs.

    We've made redundant people who's skill sets in no way matched the requirement for this task and to be honest even if we tried to recruit and train people in this specialist area we'd never be able to retain them.
