taxman to Trust HR (#1)

The UK is a bit too small to have poorly presented, poorly spoken tech workers in charge of other staff. The UK still uses the group/team concept and the higher up the IT chain you get the better you have to be at all positions.

The American market is different, if your a basic programmer, your a basic programmer. Therefore you are a cog in a process, the clever IT workers were Hybrids years ago, those who cant change or wont change will find themselves replaced, technology shifts, skills shift, learn and move on.

Trust HR to taxman (#2)

Hang on, Taxman...it's not just about basic programmers...we're talking about highly skilled IT Professionals (IT Architects, Technical Project Managers)...whilst there are differences in the US/UK market, and I take your point, as you have partially admitted in the near future we'll run the risk not being able to train graduates in the basics of the SDLC (Analysis, Design, Build, Test)...even systems design and requirements gathering is shifted out...

Taxman to deleted (#0)

Trust HR, agree with you.

Put it this way, a few years ago IT was seen as an alternative to Doctor, Lawyer,Accountant. I would not advise any of my children to follow a career in IT due to the outsourcing.

Mind you Trust, these days many companies are trying to 'Insource' with no luck as the number of IT graduates in the UK are drying up, having .earned a lesson from the 2000-2002 era of 'outsourcing frenzy'.

So you see the market adjusts for these changes, and now the UK based IT candidates are once again after big money.

If you understand enterprise arhitecture, you can get yourself a tidy 5 figure number as an IT Consultant/Architect.

Are we still training them from university, yes we are, but not in the same numbers I think....
