Many of the thousands of jobs advertised on the Guardian website are in recruitment. They are currently carrying an advert for a position down in Bristol as an account director at Pure Recruitment. So far, all pretty standard. Just the one thing: due to the successful candidate having to deal with businessmen from the Middle East, women are banned from applying.
“To include clients in the Middle East. Please note; Due to the travel and work restrictions for women in this area, we need to limit our candidate selection to males only.”
The Guardian turning a blind eye to workplace discrimination against women at home and abroad. Everyday sexism…
@WikiGuido Alex, thanks for bringing to our attention, this role has now been edited. We do not condone sexism in our job adverts.
