event management is just that...most are only one person......

event suppliers provide the infrastructure.......(which is what i do)

showsec do mainly foh security......many other companies do the same.....they don't own barriers etc.....and just because you see staff doesn't equal they are running the event......

the event industry is much bigger than concerts.......

I have no knowledge of that sector so thanks for the insight.  Good luck with your business.

He makes programmes for Manx Radio so I expect it's a quid pro quo arrangement. He's a remarkable gentleman is our Tel, proper old school and I have huge respect for him and elders in general. Un

Nope - I have good manners and don't think it's classy to disparage a chap in his 80's who is still working hard and doing something lots of people enjoy. Of course, since you don't, it must be r

A low point has been plumbed on MF by the sneering condemnation of this man. I don’t know Mr Cringle. I have never met him. As far as I know makes no pretence  regarding his age ,yet the ter

Regarding the "system" isn't the lack of opportunity for younger generations largely down to an overall lack of opportunity and waiting for those in senior positions to retire or move?

I have seen it in my field.  Once a senior position becomes vacant it creates a ripple effect as people move around back filling various jobs.  It then settles down until the someone else moves on.

I know nepotism exists and that is unfortunate but it also exists in the UK but is less of an issue because there are more opportunities.

I think the media on the Island is the same.  There are a limited number of permanent positions and doing freelance work carries an element of risk for those who may have young families, mortgages or rent to pay and need consistent income.

I think that is part of it. On the other hand, why are the young(er) people they do recruit usually not local or Manx? They clearly have a bias against young Manx people and prefer to recruit off-island. Perhaps the young talent just don't bother coming back, they go and marry and have kids across; whereas on the odd occasion when a position does become available, they advertise it all over the UK, and then locals -- who are already systemically discriminated against -- will not bother applying because they know the system here is designed against their interest.

I should point out that I personally have never had any interest in entering radio or newspaper media, so this isn't about me; it's purely an outside observation.

In a parallel universe, people are hired entirely on their skillset, competence and attitude - irrespective of race, gender, sexuality, people they know or political affinity.

Sadly we seem to be galloping inexorably away from that. I'm all for creating equal opportunities (especially for Manx people in the Isle of Man) but I despair of this current move towards tick box employment policy.

You really are living in a parallel universe if you think hiring was EVER based entirely on skillset, competence and attitude.

I do agree with you about the tick box stuff though. People SHOULD be hired based on INDIVIDUAL skillset, competence and attitude.

The Legislative Council is a very good example of where that kind of tick box policy has gone wrong.

What about McDonald's, what were their hiring practices like?
