Hat tip to Ordovicius for this rather stunning story about how a Job Centre is placing adverts for "Escorts - £100 an hour".
The Daily Post reports that
"An advert on the government-run Jobcentre Plus website seeks men and women to “provide clients with a personal escort service in an unsupervised environment.” But a website for the firm which placed the vacancy ad makes clear the services on offer are somewhat less innocent.
One girl, Samantha, charges £150 an hour or £950 for an overnight job, and offers “no-strings adult fun, men only”.The decision to place the adverts was last night defended by the Department for Work and Pensions, but criticised by a leading charity.
The advert on the Jobcentre Plus website claims it is seeking men and women to work between 10 and 30 hours, for at least £100 an hour.It reads: “No experience necessary. Vacancy not suitable for under 18s. Duties involve providing clients with a personal escort service in an unsupervised environment."
Ordovicius has more on his blog about this, which I recommend you to read. This includes details of the applicants being asked which sexual positions and acts they are not comfortable with !
You cannot believe that any official at the Job Centre could possibly believe this is the sort of profession that should be advertised and recruited for in a Job Centre, even if it is the oldest profession in the world.
