I found the whole process of contracting quite stressful, mainly due to the agency not providing me with the correct information at the outset.  The agency were not interested in helping me when my pay was incorrect.  Thankfully Hannah and Natasha were brilliant and really helped sort things out for me.  They were not only responsive to my queries but they proactively picked up issues, for example letting me know when there was going to be a problem with my pay or when they had not heard from the agency.  Hannah unfortunately was on the receiving end of my frustration a number of times and was always extremely patient and understanding and ultimately sorted everything out for me.
