Why is the current rate for a very senior UX Lead hourly rate?

Backstory: my employer is “eliminating” my position and gave me 90 day notice. Now that we are at the end, they asked about me contracting there still.

Hmmm... I don't recommend hourly rate, although sometimes I apply it myself. Not sure there's a great hourly rate you can apply, it varies from $30 to $1000 depending on the use case. My suggestion is to just add something to your current income and divide it by the number of hours you currently work. This will tell you your current hourly rate that you can adjust as needed.

I applied to a job at KPMG and did the first two rounds of interviews, general interview, then case study and competency. Never before have I had such a positive feedback at the end of an interview of the 2nd, both said really like me, I did well etc.
It's now been 3 weeks since the interview and I still haven't heard back from the team other than the odd HR email saying they are following up with them. Is there something going on internally, I.e hiring freeze in the London office atm?
