I assume PHP/PERL is as easy as stacking shelves at Tesco then ?

If that's what it is being valued at, then either there is a glut of people with the skill or the skill is easy to master (eg..easier than Logo)

Government Regulatory Body: You do realise that we can only issue work permits for roles that have been advertised in this country and for which you failed to find suitable candidates?

Employer: Yes, of course. Look, here's the proof, a job advert on jobserve. The only applicants were complete muppets. Now, can we have those work permits?

I belive they were one of the outsourced solutions used by BT a while back. From what I recall being said at the time it was not what you would call a success.

Failure to understand or properly explore requirements, poor quality on work delivered and lack of relavent experience amongst their staff.

Sounds about right. The Tech Director at my old place used them - against advice I might add.

A shambles. Still at least it was only £180k that was pissed against the wall.
