A couple of interesting ads from the P&J web job site

On each of the ads there are 2 different rates quoted. The higher rate is probably what the agency is getting paid and the lower rate is likely what the agency is paying to the contractor.

A nice mark up, which is fine, everyone's got to make a living, but keep the higher rates in mind if you are working direct and negotiating a rate..
Veni, Vidi, Velcro! (I came, I saw, I stuck around!)
Interesting that you point these out as they are both my adverts. The rates have a range as my client does not have set rates, but sets a rate based on experience, hence the ranges quoted.

It also looks like the website has translated the rate into GBP for the lower box as all the rates I added for these positions were in USD.

Let me know if you're interested though! Very Happy

Even in USD the rates quoted are a farce.

Is it the agency mark up or the client I wonder ??? Rolling Eyes

I'm sure there will be plenty of cheap labour lined up ready...or are they out at the monent?

Meeoooow Razz
I was on the kettle!
There is some thing very strange here as there might be the odd error but the same ad comes out with some very strange day rates .

The first rates for this job I saw was on Trovit web site and the ad runs the rates at :-

J45578 Job Title : ROV Supervisor - Cougar
Position Type : Contract
Salary : £642 - £685 per hour

Job Description : Apply 2 x ROV Supervisors needed for a 45 day contract performing touchdown monitoring work.

My client are currently looking for two contract ROV Supervisors with Seaeye Cougar experience to join them for one 45 day rotation off Qatar. You will have some experience of touchdown monitoring projects and have an in depth knowledge of Seaeye Cougar systems. You must also be able to demonstrate at least 2 years Supervisory experience and a minimum of 5 years working offshore.

This job will be mobilising from Qatar on 18th May and will be paying in the region of 750 - 800 USD per day.

Please note to be considered you must have up-to-date safety and medical documentation, a valid Seaman's Book and recent H2S training cert.

Connections Recruitment Limited is acting as an Employment Business in relation to this vacancy

The job is also on the JOBSITE web site however now the rates come up again as :-

Job Type: Contract/Interim

Salary: £642.97 - £685.84 p day

All this seems very strange however at the end of the day the answer lays in the client who is Horizon Survey the same company that has a very bad history of late payments or no payments .
