    Default And still the ICT route is abused

    While matching quite closely the occupational salary rates established by the Home Office,[8] the threshold is not necessarily aligned with the actual UK labour market rate for a number of IT roles (see fig.2 below). This is in part due to the fact that consultancy type work (which is common among IT specialists) is generally paid higher than the going rate for a given occupation and this is not accounted for in Home Office calculations.

    doesnt take account of the massive tax perks ICT visa entrants get either, eg. first 12 months in the country free of both employers and employees national insurance. which means they can undercut locals significantly. indeed for many roles they pair people up one here, other in India, then swap them over every 12 months, and that role in the UK is then perpetually free of national insurance as they are always claiming to have been here less than 12 months.

    Current client co has hundreds of ICT guys and girls from India, they use InfoSys and they are onsite for up to the 12 month limit then swapped out.

    Service and quality is rock bottom but client co only considers cost, so they are as happy as pigs in tulip.
