Stretching a soft offer

Got a verbal offer from Spotify as a Data Scientist

3 month contract to FTE


Tentative start date is early June. How can I stretch this to allow other companies to make their offers?

I'm thinking it's wise to say I have an offer, but not with whom, for how much, or under what terms.

Beyond that what else can I do?

Edit: There are 2 other companies with pending on-sites and another 6 or so at the phone interview stage.

    I would personally look for a non contract gig. Too much risk.

    Tell your other recruiters (politely) you have an offer and they need to speed up.
