Agency sends contractors' day rates to 800 RBS staff

People's bank sacks inhouse, pays £2k/day to outhousers

Recruitment agency Hays has committed a massive blunder at the Royal Bank of Scotland.

An email reminding managers to update timesheets in time for the bank holiday included an attachment with the day rates of 3,000 contractors. It was sent to 800 people at the bank.

The row will likely deepen divisions between temporary and permanent staff – top rates for contractors were £2,000 a day. RBS is, of course, owned by the British taxpayer and has been busy sacking permanent IT staff – 1,000 jobs went and some 800 were offshored.

Such cuts of course always mean more work for contractors.
