IT graduates could lose out to cheap overseas workers

IT graduates in the UK could lose out on opportunities to foreign workers if new immigration proposals are accepted by the government, an employment expert has claimed.

According to the Association of Professional Staffing Companies (Apsco), the government is planning on making graduates eligible for intra-company transfers (ICTs).

The scheme was set up to allow businesses with offices overseas to bring highly skilled staff to the UK, who would otherwise be difficult to find.

Ann Swain, chief executive of Apsco, said: ‘The whole point of the ICT scheme is to bring in senior staff with specialist knowledge or expertise not readily available in the UK. Using the system to bring in graduates would be wrong-headed and illogical.’

Proposals from the Home Office’s Migration Advisory Committee suggest that graduates would be eligible for a transfer after three months of working for a company. continues here
