It Headed Down Again

Recommended Posts

Well done Gordon & Co.

No junior jobs means no skilled persons later on - those posts will have to be offshored later as well.

Offshoring could be behind drop in demand for IT staff

Growth in demand for IT professionals has declined for the first time in two years, with indications that the jobs market may be feeling the impact of work moving offshore, research shows.

The latest quarterly trends survey from Personnel Today's sister title Computer Weekly and analysts SSL shows that the number of jobs advertised online fell by 6% during the second half of 2005 – the first decline since October 2003.

At the same time, advertised salaries have fallen in more than half of the job categories monitored by SSL over the past six months.

Philip Virgo, strategic adviser at the Institute for the Management of Information Systems, said: "Except for those who have got skills that are in short supply, such as project management, business understanding and multimedia skills, we will see a permanent shrinking in demand. If it can be moved offshore, it is moved offshore."

.........

"Offshore outsourcing has affected the junior jobs. A huge number have been taken out of the profession," she said

Gordon's budget speech will contain some "good news" though like.......er,......well there's................mmm, what about.........................

I know! Homeowners continued to see "value" added to their property last year. That's good news, isn't it?

David "Scotty" Cameron will be able to list a few things I am sure.

Not sure why project management can't be offshored too. And what the heck is "multimedia skills"? I'd agree that business understanding is the real valuable skill - people who do IT of some sort (development etc.) in a sphere where business knowledge is essential are still in huge demand. But that article looks like a lot of reheated left overs to me.
