British Council to outsource 100 jobs to India in bid to cut costs

The British Council is to outsource 100 jobs to India as part of a cost-cutting drive to help save the taxpayer money, according to a report in the Times.

IT and finance posts are to be the first filled by Indian workers, though other departments could also be impacted.

The article added that The Foreign and Commonwealth Office, which funds the British Council, is to explore similar options.

Final decisions about which jobs will go to India will be taken in the next few weeks, but the Times claimed they are likely to include 58 finance posts, up to 40 IT posts and 15 posts for a new centre of excellence.

Earlier this year, Personnel Today reported that PCS union was furious about the plans to cut jobs and offshore jobs.
