There's only one part time vacancy currently being advertised but casual workers are also being actively sought

It’s been sent out internally first before external so if you wait a few days you can apply or ask someone who works there for details!!!

You can get them from ... the Post Office:

https://www.iompost.com/stamps-coins/collection/coins/

But as I understand it  Banks and other coin dealers outlets get a better discount than the post office , what I would like to see is the design  and all the marketing carried out by the Philatelic department ,  which could provide a more united Isle of Man PLC front ,some of the previous christmas coins and TT collectable coins are bringing decent money ,these were designed as joint ventures  post office treasury  ,with associated stamp issues ,and have been highly successful in the past  ,

One of the issues with Hermès is that they are not licensed, pay no tax or NI in IOM and don’t pay sick pay etc to driver’s.

IOM post are licensed and pay all NI etc as well as paying a proper wage & conditions.

if the public want companies that don’t contribute to island, offer poor conditions then carry on as is and a subsidy may have to be paid from their taxes,

There are also a lot of businesses and individuals on the Island that rely on services such as Hermes and the loss of them means higher unemployment and therefore more Government money to pay their benefits. Not to mention the folding of businesses on the Island.

There’s no need to get so cross. It is very clear that the only posts they are currently advertising are casual (ie, hourly paid) roles as they are the only jobs on their website. Also I suppose why would they offer permanent roles for internal applicants only as the internal applicants already have permanent jobs? So presumably if they take any of the jobs you allege exist then all that will then be left for anyone else will be casual roles like the only ones advertised?

Maybe they recruit internally from the casual staff? Say they took on 10 for christmas and it turned out two of them were actually pretty good, so next time you had a full time job available you'd want them to get it.

But seeing as its banker you're arguing with you're probably right.

Encouraging retiring full-timers to take up the part-time posts that are replacing them, (the old "double dip") is why they're being advertised internally first.

ETA The "retirees" may not even be of retirement age...their circumstances may just allow part time work to be more favourable. Win win for the PO but it still amounts to the same thing, getting full timers off the books and replacing them with part timers.

There’s 1 part time & 4 full time, my friend said they just let staff know first as some may want a change, some temporary may want permanent & it takes a few days to get on media & government sites. when they’re advertised no doubt some other stupid conspiracy theory will be posted!!

Agreed but even if they do that you know what will probably happen is that everyone gets promotion into a better paid permanent job and then they backfill with casual roles. Not sure what the issue is as if you go onto their website the only jobs they’re advertising that outsiders can get are casual hourly paid jobs. It doesn’t really matter what gets offered internally as they’re already in permanent roles. They aren’t new jobs.

I know for a fact that the existing casual staff are frequently excluded from applying for any part time roles arising internally. That tells you all you need to know about who the vacancies are aimed at?

They are new posties jobs so not sure how everyone gets a promotion, you’ve obviously got a grudge against them, perhaps sacked for incompetence or turned down for a casual job?

Not sure where that stream of nonsense came from. It’s pointless anyone contributing to this thread anymore. I’ll go back to the election pages which is all that interests me anyway.

Obviously hit the nail on the head!!
