Bank research says not enough UK IT skills

NatWest International Personal banking has carried out research of human resources proffesionals.

Apparently  UK IT has the biggest skills gap of all sectors. A massive 51% agree that foreign IT workers are in then UK because the UK does not have the skills base of its own.

This is interesting because it comes from part of the RBS group.

Is RBS planning on offshoring more IT?

From my experience, most foreign IT workers are young, lower skilled and cheaper than UK IT workers. They do the grunt work and UK workers do the managing and highly skilled work.

The entry level work used to be done by UK graduates, but I see a lot less around these days.

I wonder how many of the 51% of companies have cut their UK IT graduate recruitment in the last several years and also cut training.
