I know the financial meltdown has left a few Excel/VBA devs spare but 160 a day won’t cover a travel pass and butties. And its only 3 weeks.
And there is another on 200, both claiming they want decent skill and experience.
Apart from these two aberrations though the market seems to be picking up, more jobs are getting posted and rates are recovering a little, although skillset requirements are still a bit silly.
What’s the market like where you are?
(not that London is where I am, but try searching Cumbria and Excel jobs and you’ll see why I keep an eye on London!)
