I have been offered a full time job with a tech company that urgently needs a new product brought to market. They require a software engineer with quite specialised experience, and so a friend there reached out and asked if I could help.
I am interested in the work - it is building systems from scratch, and implementing some quite unique technology with no prior art - but am worried how I would later 'sell' a six month role on my CV. At first glance it might look like I was a 'job hopper'. But in this instance both parties are aware this would likely be a short-term arrangement. How can I make that clear on my CV?
A further note: it is not, at least in UK terms, 'contract work' - I would not be self-employed during this period and my employer would still be paying my NICs.
