Hi - We just spoke over the phone regarding the cooling off exemption - Not sure as one of the agencies offered this for me - f you don’t yet have a UK employer, or a client willing to pay a good day rate for services you deliver, then finding one is probably the best step to take next. If you have a job offer paying £159,600 per year, or a contract offer on £1,000/day, then we may be able to use the ‘high earners exemption’. If this is not possible, then we need to keep looking for other options. can you please confirm if this wont work

i believe our phone conversation is helpful to you.
