    Businesses use immigration loophole for cheap IT labour

    Companies are using a loophole to bring people with IT skills in from outside the UK despite the high availability of UK workers, it was claimed today.

    Companies are using intra-company transfers to bring in staff to the UK from outside the EU without advertising the vacancies in the UK, claim recruitment companies.

    The Association of Professional Staffing Companies (Apsco), which represents IT recruitment companies, has written to Phil Woolas, minister of state for borders and immigration, urging him to put a stop to the practice.

    Ann Swain, CEO at Apsco, said there are enough workers available in the UK to fill the vast majority of vacancies.
