UK businesses have booted out hundreds of IT staff and offshored hundreds in last two year

According to the survey of IT professionals I have been blogging about for the last week, the reality of offshoring’s impact on the UK IT profession is clear.

The survey put together by reader, Matt, has revealed a great deal.

On Monday I blogged the results that showed that less than 20% of offshore IT workers in the UK have specialist skills, Tuesday revealed that 80% of IT professionals have had no real pay rise in five years and then wednesday showed results that revealed results that showed that Half of UK IT professionals have received no training in last five years.

Yesterday gave figures on the number of trainee IT graduates being taken on, and today I present the figures about the number of staff made redundant by businesses and the number of jobs sent offshore.

There is a strong correlation if you look at the graphs below.

The amount of businesses that have made over 100 IT workers redundant and offshored over 100 is similar.

The large slices of the pie charts are the number of businesses that have made between 0 and 10 IT staff redundant and offshored  between 0 and 10 IT jobs. Because we cannot differentiate between the businesses that have not offshored any IT jobs and those that have offshored between 1 and 10, I will ignore this stat.

But the number of businesses making over 100 IT workers redundant and offshoring over 100 are significant.

The survey asked: How many IT jobs has your organisation lost in the last 2 years?

And the survey said:
