    Default Market in Scotland….

    I used to work for a consultancy in Scotland, so have got to know a couple of Scottish contractors.

    It appears that a large Indian consultancy (of the same name that has bought Jaguar) is doing testing at considerably cheaper rates for the RBS, NAG amongst at least one other major Scottish company. This is bound to be pushing rates and positions down.

    Just wondering how things are from those on the ground? Living close to Manchester Airport I have good links by train, plane and automobile to Glasgow, hence was thinking about Scotland as an exit route from Permiedom.

    Having said that, last time I looked rates were around the £220 mark for what I am getting over 50% over that here in the North West.

    Appears that the Scots may be pushed out of their own country, or have to go permie…..

    Should so - a lot of finance work in England comes from Scotland.

    Eg:

    Barclays Wealth
    RBS

    Amongst others.

    Not a great amount, but, off-shore work is slowly creeping ever closer south....

    Seriously, how doomed is the market in Scotland?

    If Tata stuff up, then things will be nice and rosy.

    If they pull it off with 3 very high profile clients they are now engaged with, things appear fairly bleak.

    Too right.

    Made your bed - lie in it.

    You've come right out the other side of the forest of irony and ended up in the desert of wrong.

    I always thought scotland was safe from outsourcing because of the language barrier.
