It's the 'every office is run differently' again. I started in RM in 1997 and was one of several posties taken on in full time contracts. In my experience part time jobs don't work within RM mainly because we have too much to do within duty time. There is no spare capacity to prep walks for part timers to just turn up and bundle up. The push to employ part timers is a relatively new thing in our area and for the most part our office has resisted the pressure to do so.
