I was approached yesterday by BBC radio asking me whether I was aware of a trend that is seeing IT contractors win multiple jobs and then subletting them to low cost IT professionals from overseas. These contractors known as “Ringers” are taking a slice of the work done by others.
I know there are a lot of contractors that comment on this blog about various issues so I told the BBC journalist I would put a blog post up asking for feedback. If this phenomenon is true it would be shocking with the number of UK contractors out there looking for work.
You can either leave a comment on the blog or email Fiona Leach at the BBC direct on Fiona.firstname.lastname@example.org.
If this is true I am very interested in hearing more myself.
