DirectGov Jobcentre advertises for ‘Psychic Readers’

(Click to enlarge)

His Grace was a-twittering last night, trying to work off some of the additional ounces his ashes have acquired over the festive period (it doesn’t take much), and he overheard / eavesdropped / intercepted / hearkened unto a conversation between a few of his congenial fellow twitterers (is that what they’re called?) in which it was disclosed that a DirectGov Jobcentre website was advertising for 'psychic readers'.

The advertisement was still live at the time of posting (enter Job Ref: HAJ/40528 into the Job Title box).

It is a self-employed position, but we are told that the vacancy ‘meets the requirements of the National Minimum Wage Act’, so it guarantees more than £5.93/hr for psychics over the age of 21.

Psychics who are aged 18-20 will earn a minimum of £4.92/hr;
Those who are 16-17 will earn £3.64/hr;
And apprentice psychics will earn a minimum of £2.50.

But presumably they all know that.

The required hours are 37.5, but it’s all very flexible.

Which is really useful if you’re a psychic dreamer: you can earn while you sleep – a psychic teenager’s dream job.

The location of the vacancy is stated as ‘various’, but then specifies an ML3 postcode.

When you click on location in the ‘Transport Direct’ link at the bottom of the page, you get the full postcode as ML3 6BU. This is a road by the name of ‘Postgate’ in Motherwell.

This is not really local to His Grace, but he has decided to apply anyway.

The position is permanent, and applications close on 20 January 2011.

No details were specified for pension arrangements, but, presumably, you’re expected to know how long you might live and whether or not you’ll need one.
Job Description:

Do you want to earn money using your natural gift from the comfort of your own home? We require up to 20 psychics to take advantage of our home worker opportunity, you will work in a self employed basis via our payroll partners. All HMRC deductions and running costs will be taken care of by our back office. All we require is that you have a landline, telephone, broadband/internet connection, pc literacy and of course the most important part, natural psychic talent. The Company has given an assurance that this vacancy enables workers to achieve a wage equivalent to the National Minimum Wage rate. Self-employed people are responsible for paying their own National Insurance contributions and Tax. For information on how benefits are affected, and whether entitlement may be lost, speak to a Jobcentre Plus Adviser.

How to apply
You can apply for this job by telephoning 0169 8892540 ext 0 and asking for Scott Brown.
Poor Scott.

He has absolutely no idea what’s about to come his way.

There are a few interesting aspects to this ‘job’ which are of interest to His Grace.

Firstly, psychic practices are strongly condemned in Scripture (Ex 22:18; Lev 19:26-26; 19:31; 20:6; Deut 18:10-11; Isa 8:19; Mal 3:5).

But we’ll set that one aside for the time being, not least because we are said to be in the post-Christian age in which all religions (and 'life philosophies') are equal; witches and wizards are able to absent themselves from their places of work on their holy days of obligation; and Satan worship is permitted upon Her Majesty’s naval vessels.

Yet His Grace would suggest that this ‘job’ is an absurdity, for how does one establish ‘natural psychic talent’?

Are there exams to sit? A degree to be acquired? References to be submitted?

Is there any objective assessment to fairly establish an aptitude for telepathy, clairvoyance or inexplicable omniscient divination?

And if one does not possess natural psychic talent, may one acquire it un-naturally? Be trained? Apprenticed?

The interesting thing is that DirectGov itself heeds the words of Scripture, and warns job-seekers that the ‘Top Five Frauds’ include ‘psychic scams’.

By juxtaposing ‘psychic’ and ‘scam’, they leave no room for real or genuine psychic pursuits: so when is ‘psychic’ not a scam?

Or does this juxtaposition manifest irrational prejudice or bigotry against a legitimate religious belief?

There was concern expressed by one of the foremost legal minds in the blogosphere (Jack of Kent aka DavidAllenGreen) that ‘it would appear that JSA could well be at stake if jobless person did not go for this f....t "psychic job".’

His Grace would like to reassure the unemployed that their Jobseeker’s Allowance is not likely to be affected by refusal to take this job, since they could simply claim non-qualification (ie lack of ‘natural psychic ability’). It is, however, an interesting job for those with an eye on anti-discrimination and equality legislation.

Is the lack of psychic ability a disability?

What might happen if such a disabled person were to apply?

What if a Christian or Jew were to apply, declare their propensity for the Pentateuch, and then be rejected.

It would be for DirectGov to ensure that neither they nor their client-advertiser is discriminating on the grounds of religion or belief, in accordance with the Equality Act 2010.

While discrimination on grounds of religion or belief is automatically unlawful, the nature of religions or beliefs demands objective justification for disparate impact. The failure to be appointed to a job for which one is otherwise qualified is deemed by the Courts sufficient to constitute such discrimination. A charismatic Christian professing the gift of prophecy may indeed consider him or herself to manifest ‘natural psychic ability’, yet this be not quite the sort of ability the advertisers had in mind.

But a secular society must treat all people, whether believers or not, equally.

Ergo, a non-believer in the psychic and supernatural must have the right to apply for this job.

And if he or she fails to be appointed, again it would be for DirectGov to establish that neither they nor their client-advertiser is actively discriminating against the non-believer.

Beliefs often lead adherents to the need to manifest their closely held views in a way which may conflict with ordinary requirements of the work place: we are all now very familiar with the fate of those who wear a cross or offer to pray. There is not quite the same degree of privilege granted to belief as to (say) disability, so there is no compulsion upon an employer to make ‘reasonable adjustments’ to the wishes of the believer.

Although this is a self-employed position, it would be interesting to ascertain precisely what objective qualification is deemed by Scott Brown to be sufficient for consideration for the job. Vacancies requiring religious vocation are not usually dealt with by the local Jobcentre.

His Grace is thinking of applying.

He is, of course, unlikely to be appointed to the position.

Does such prescience constitute ‘natural psychic ability’?

Or should he simply inform Mr Brown that ‘psychic scams’ are condemned by by both DirectGov and Scripture?

What on Earth will you do if you are offered the position?.
After all you probably have a better CV than most others, being that your ashes have been circulating inthe Heavenly realms for Centuries.
This also raises the question, are we, participating in a seance when we respond to your Blog? or do we have to extinguish the lights & write in strange script or maybe communicate in morse code raps? Or will your future blogs be typed by a psychic after you dictate through a trumpet?.
Perhaps you should take some advice from the Prophet Samuel before proceeding with your job application. I understand he has some experience of the post.
Anyway I expect the lines will all be very busy now unless there is a BT fault due to unforseen cicumstances!.

Like any belief system, it becomes a scam when it is commercialised, if the psychic was a little old lady within your direct or indirect family who did such things, then it would most likely be a cultural thing.

The odd thing is that the advert doesn't specify what the psychic reader is being asked to do. Indeed it is not clear who the employer will be. It would be interesting to find out. In well over five decades of life I've never needed a psychic.

Your Grace,

My servant Baldrick has a cunning plan.

He will repair to the Job Centre armed only with a hidden tape recorder. He will challenge the advertisement on the grounds that it an offence against Holy writ, centuries of Christian tradition, the Church of England and Her Majesty the Queen. He will request, nay demand, that it be withdrawn immediately.

In the unlikely event that this ruse does not succeed he will return later disguised as a member of an ethnic minority religion.

I will let you know how he gets on.

Bishop Alan,

His Grace is forbidden, like Superman, to interfere in human history; and he is bound, like Marty and Professor Emmett Brown, by strict limitations governing the space-time continuum.

He is surprised that a state shepherd of the state's sheep should manifest such an ethical lapse. If His Grace were morally capable of or inclined to 'rig' interviews, you would swiftly find him working under your aegis.

There seems to be quite an interest nowadays in the occult as evidenced in the Media,and ( if it is not a scam)advertising for psychics is perhaps not that surprising? Perhaps someone is setting up another quango; Psychic Advisers to The Government on Spiritual Matters, perhaps? Leviticus 19:31; 20:6, 27; and Deuteronomy 18:9-14 refer to “mediums and familiar spirits” and forbids being involved with them, as they are an abomination to the Lord. The medium was one who acted as a “go-between” to supposedly contact or communicate with the dead, but in reality they were contacting demons who convinced the mediums that they were “familiar” and could be trusted and believed. The practices associated with mediums and familiar spirits were banned in Israel, and the punishment for practicing such things was death.

To this day, familiar spirits (demons) are under the control of their master, Satan. They influence people to spread lies and deceit in order to thwart the kingdom of God. Knowingly opening oneself to the work of demons is an evil thing: "Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in [a] fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD" (Deuteronomy 18:10-12a).

Your Grace,

Further to my earlier communication, @12:49, I regret to say that Baldrick's excursion to the Job Centre was, to put it mildly, something of a failure. For reasons completely beyond his comprehension the public office was closed today and the security staff received him with politeness customarily afforded to fruitcakes. His demand in the name of the Supreme Governor of the Church of England was greeted with considerable mirth and ejection rapidly followed.

Undaunted, he returned later in a cunning female disguise that concealed his person from head to toe. Boldly he strode into the security lobby and demanded that the offending advertisement be removed in the name of some prophet or other. They were gob-smacked and so was he for in his haste the fool had forgotten to switch on the hidden tape recorder attached to a belt around his waist. He lifted his hem and reached for the button.

The resulting mayhem is almost beyond imagination and will probably be ignored by the BBC in order to preserve decorum (and bias.)

I have emailed Aspirare and Scott Brown for further details – no doubt I will hear from them after the extended Scottish bank holiday period. In the meantime you may be interested to know how rigorous the recruitment policy for psychic readers can be. One London psychic agency claims that the right people can find themselves earning £24 and above per hour within 12 hours of signing on with them. Here are some details from www.psychicrecruitment.com based in London:
We are a leading Psychic Recruitment Agency, dealing with clairvoyants, mediums, astrologers, Tarot and all other forms of Psychic Readers. We are currently seeking palmists and psychics who can read auras.

All of the readers that join us, are requested to perform a Test Phone Reading lasting twenty minutes. This reading is checked for accuracy, presentation and healing content. …

The following results can occur following the test procedure:

1. The reader meets our stringent requirements and is offered the chance to read for our clients.
2. The reader meets our requirements, but it is felt that further monitoring will be required, before the reader is fully accepted as part of the team. In this instance a trial period is offered, during which readings are monitored closely to ensure they meet an acceptable standard.
3. The reader shows themselves to meet the basic requirements of integrity, patience, respect, and selflessness, but does not appear to have reached our requirements for readings, YET! In this case, feedback is offered, and training provided to encourage and foster the reader to grow stronger in their gifts, and more able in their presentation skills. They are then re-tested at an appropriate time, by mutual agreement.
4. The reader shows themselves to lack in one of the following areas, and does not succeed at the application process:

a. Fails to show appropriate respect for human beings, and their inherent goodness, no matter who they speak or refer to;

b. fails to show proper patience, temperance and humility in their manner, attitude and demeanour;

c. fails to show skill in the particular field at which they claim to be proficient, to an extent that training would be ineffective;

d. lies or by an act of omission, deceives or misleads a representative of psychicrecruitment.com, in any way or for any reason;

e. demonstrates that they would be unable to deal with situations that might arise, in the performance of readings, in a way that is required under ICSTIS regulations.

This list is by no means exhaustive or final, and the chance to read for our clients is provided at our sole discretion.


Psychic reading is obviously big business!

I dont really know wat to make of this post your grace , I have a feeling the lord doesnt quite work in this way , I presume there is no cold calling , but you will be answering calls on people wishing to know how certain dilemmas will work out. I have never attended a spiritualist meeting in part because I am not too sure in this modern data base age what people can pretend to know once they have your name. That aside a ladyfriend I knew did once consult a well respected medium and it gave some very odd news and I did not know what to make of it .
I would have thought any genuine powers granted by God would be only for good purposes , I cannot imagine anyone wanting personal profit would find much joy in its power.
Again though science has spent some time on telekenesis and I am sure many people have experienced guidance , but then you end up trying to describe a spiritual service akin to Hogwarts school of learning which doesnt explain the christian aspect very well.
Even then it would seem that God does not provide an office or position within the communion as it is could be falable .Rasputin was shot and drowned so I hope the new recruits have good union representation .
But to say that God does shine light into the darkness is perhaps more attune to how such a gift may fit in christianity . Indeed the parables often seem to project into the future , working upon the elusive substance of wisdom .

However should a mystic Clegg , or Pickles be in search of news on the forthcomming byelection I could only predict much wailing and nashing of teeth and a vexated electorate spirit , perhaps even some disgust .If they want turnout to increase they should bus The former PM in to hold street chats , I always felt voting was imperative when ever I saw him.

On a slightly more serious note there seems to be a growing interest(and acceptance) of the occult in our Society.
The Media seems to abound in Films,video games,books, music, ,all dealing with the occult some hardline, others presenting more subtle forms of the occult.
I believe this is indoctrinating us(our youth in particular)into an acceptance of the occult and possibly opening doors to satanic influences.
People seeking the truth about spiritual matters are being led astray by the Master Spirit of deception ......Satan himself.
The enemy is coming in like a flood trying to sweep away all knowledge of the Gospel from our Society.Even to the extent of presenting a 'false Christ' to deceive those religiously inclined.
It is time for true Christians to stand firm and resist the wiles of the devil in the Power of the Holy Spirit.
Jesus countered every lie of Satan with the Word of God and every born-again Christian should do the same!

That must have been a long time ago because Job centres now do have adverts for artists models, strippers and even pole dancers, and in economically challenged areas even the ladies working in the local sex shop are on the government work placement scheme! I was chatting to one such lady in the supermarket before Christmas. Standards have really slipped along with the economy so it's no wonder that people such as those running the websites on Increase The Wedge are finding ever more creative ways of making money by fleecing the innocent, naive and desperate callers, as well as exploiting anyone with previsionary mental qualities who might wish to undertake such work. Maybe the spirit of Archbishop Cranmer would be able to instil some common sense and moral values into the gullible who ring such lines if his application is successful.

3 January 2011 21:21

Well done, and thank you for the compliment.

It is good that you cannot discern a coherent belief system, as I would be most horrified if you could.

The last thing a seeker of the truth should ever want to be accused of would be, being drunk in charge of a coherent belief system.

The truth may to some degree be hided in plain sight, but mostly it is simply hided as far from view as possible. What makes things almost infinitely worse is that those who profess to be the holders of the truth, seem to be the most expert at hiding it.

In my experience, it is hard enough trying to work out how this particular part of the universe is being daily manipulated. When it comes to things spiritual the questions are simply so big, that only an utter fool could be even slightly certain about anything.

Never trust he who claims to have found the truth, trust more he who claims to be still looking for it.

Having said that The Bible is a most excellent guide, for many reasons, some more obvious then others. See below.

Now I must admit that I have not read much of the great book over the last 10 years. I thought it was well past time I did a little more homework. I have come up with some very interesting verses I would like to share with you all.

Revelation 18 verses 2-4

And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

For all nations have drunk of her wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.

And I heard another voice from heaven saying, Come out of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

Now you may all have your own ideas as to exactly where Babylon the great is supposed to be today, as well represent. I however I have little; well to be more honest absolutely no doubt whatsoever as to what is meant by Babylon the great, and as sure as hell itself, it is not anywhere near Iraq, or indeed the middle-east.

This having studied ancient civilizations, where their belief systems originated from, and more importantly where they ended up, since my first year at senior school, when I won an award for my project work. Which was approximately 40 years ago.

I knew as far back as 40 years ago that The Babylonian belief systems eventually ended up after some degree of alteration, being assimilated into The ROMAN EMPIRE.

Which is more then a little interesting because The RCC was directly created by the eastern half of The Roman Empire, to assist in recreating the already destroyed original western half.

Which of course worked very well indeed as reasonably soon The RCC controlled all of the crown heads of Europe. Then went on to start the first functional international trading, banking, and judicial systems, took over or created all of Europe's universities and educational establishments, while becoming the predominant religion of western Europe.

Thus The RCC became more powerful over all things Western European, then The last Roman Empire could ever have hoped to become. This largely not by force of arms, but by controlling the minds and fortunes of the crown heads of state of Europe.

Interesting book, is that one of many revelations.

Since the rise of spiritualism in the mid 1850s, every demonstration of psychic, clairvoyant or other claimed supernatural skills has met with failure.
Consequently, the repeal of the 1951 Fraudulent Mediums Act in favour of Consumer Law two years ago has made it much easier for subjects to shout "Foul!" and sue the pants of anyone taking money for making such claims.
Hence the reason why you now see various caveats such as "for entertainment purposes only", "For experimental purposes only" and similar comments which accompany performances.
Anyone who claims psychic powers but then cannot demonstrate them (which basically includes 100% of anyone still living and breathing) is guilty in pretty much the same way that a shopkeeper is guilty in advertising a birthday cake and selling you a biscuit.
