Live in CH, work short contract in London

I moved to Zürich in January with my partner. I was hoping to find work here but haven't had much luck (I am a mechanical engineer). I have just been offered a 4 month contract with my old company in London. I am considering working there and commuting back to Zurich at the weekends. My motives are for boosting my experience and technical skills etc, rather than making lots of money, dodging tax etc.

I have only had permanent roles in the past. I'm looking for advice on the following:

- Can anyone recommend an agency in Zurich to do this with? As it is only a short contract and I don't know what I will be doing at the end of it then I don't think it would be worth setting up my own company. I need to set the contract up quickly so I think an agency would be most efficient.

- I am assuming that because it is only a short duration that I would be working in the UK that I wont need to pay UK tax, is this correct?

- I'm even sure what hourly rate would be realistic, can anyone point me in the direction of what I should expect?
