Thanks for the insight. Aiming for 72k€ (~£65k) seems kind of realistic then.

Why not become self-employed and do that 2y project yourself? 240 billable days a year means 480k€ in sales with little to no overhead. So you would easily make >200k€ / year. Great way to build your own business and never be an employee again.

Provided the work can be done by one individual. If it needs more than one, then the economics don’t make financial sense.
