A government website advertised a prostitute job with a salary of £10-an-hour.
The advert was mistakenly allowed by officials at the Department for Work and Pensions on Direct Gov. The manager of Horny Escorts tried his luck with a posting for female call girls and the advert was upload on the Universal Jobmatch section of the website reading ‘Female worker wanted to go out with guys maybe for evening or have full on sex.
The only qualification for the job – for which applicants would need ‘no experience’ – was that successful candidates ‘must like sex’. The advert continued: “This would be better if you was single and be able to work at your own pace. Looks and race unimportant. You will need a mobile phone.”
The job had a drop-down menu to ‘tell us why you don’t wish to apply for this job’. The advert was posted by the boss of the agency last Monday and boasts of having ‘the most gorgeous and sophisticated women and men in the UK.’
Talking about the advert, the manager said, “’I put the advert up there because it’s a job site and it’s a job. I was a bit shocked they allowed it. I also do deliveries and I had posted an ad for a same-day delivery service and then I just put the escorting one underneath it. I thought the Department of Works and Pensions would admin it. I didn’t know it would go straight online.”
The manager said he had decided to advertise because business had slowed down, “It’s not been that good.”
A DWP spokesman admitted the blunder but refused to say if adverts were read before they were posted on the website. “The post was inappropriate and was taken down next day. When advertising jobs, employers have to agree to terms and conditions. Where an inappropriate job is identified it is quickly removed,” he said.
