the position so if JH want to do it....

I was just about to comment, too. They must be a bit insensitive to 
place the positions on offer, when they must be able to notice that 
Approach is always manned by the same controller!

Since they clearly know so little about Ronaldsway ATC they must be 
about to offer a sub standard service. Why not tell them it's often 
manned, always on Wednesdays, but the usual control team will be 
delighted to welcome their aircraft.
