Flexible work pattern at its best.
As a contractor, nothing much. Do your work and get paid.
For grads, opportunity to get your certification paid for. Would advise you jump at this from day 1, otherwise you might not have the opportunity to complete it due to sudden closure of projects.
With this organisation, I strongly advise that you read your contract of employment, otherwise you might find yourself unemployable for a subsequent 6 months due to some clauses, especially if you are into Financial Services and looking at working for the same company you were deployed to. A culture of sucking up on the high.
Advice to Management
Circumstantial flexibility might be required in some contracts. Not sure its morally right for a large number of people to remain unemployed due to some rigid clause in contracts. Majority of employees don't care about giving out your company's confidential information, they just want to do their work and get paid. Full stop.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Momenta Group (London, England (UK)) in March 2013.
Very easy. Do skills test and then interview and then a phone assessment test. If you are successful, contract is offered at the last minute and everything seems rushed and uncoordinated.
