That's pretty problematic, unless there is a great reason like needing to speak German or code in a given language. Even if it is a project budget issue, that's a maybe, as rolling off implies that you're the least valuable person to keep. Reasons that are the most common (project is not interesting, wlb sucks, boss sucks, client sucks) are not considered valid reasons to change.

Seniority doesn't really have any influence on the outcome. It really depends on: do you have a good reason to roll-off, do you have another billable project to move on to straight away, and is there someone lined up wo take on your role. You can try and go down the route of saying it's not allowing you to meet your objectives, but nobody really cares about that... they just pretend they do.

Depends on your level and the needs of the project. Discuss with your leadership. Some like a 6 months heads up!

You don’t really have as much flexibility as they say you do
