Jumping the gun a bit, but out of interest, which of these job offers would you accept?
Permanent, almost full time (4.5 days p/w), low skill job with reasonably low pay (less than half of your previous salary, but liveable on)
4 month contract role, 2 days a week rising to 4, completely in line with your previous skills and experience, very high daily rate (higher than previous salary)
Will come back to this later as I'm off to a meeting.
Thanks for the responses. You all confirmed my gut feeling which was good. I accepted the contract role this morning and I start next Tuesday!

I'd probably go for the contract job, on the grounds that if you are working 4 days a week I'd want to get the most money possible and be challenged as much as you could.

Probably the contract one, if I wasnt too bothered about having a permanent job.
Would the contract 2 days give you the equivalent £ of the 4.5 days low paid job? Thats what would make the call for me.

Contract one definitely, may lead to other more appropriate opportunities for you experience as well.

I would also say the contract one. My H previosly worked fixed contracts and found that as he gained more experience he was able to extend/secure other contracts quite easily

I would say the contract one and you also don't know what else it could lead to. Good luck lady!

Yip, contract for me too for the same reasons as the others have said.

great news about the job but now I am worried we work different days and won't be able to meet up!

And fear not HN! The days are pretty negotiable. I'm only starting on a Tuesday as I couldn't work the Wednesday next week so I won't necessarily be working that day every week. Plus the contract finishes in May.
