Welsh student exposed to nude webcam operators

'Disgusted' by kit-off job ads

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

A Welsh student has described herself as "amazed and disgusted" at a couple of Jobcentre Plus ads punting for nude webcam operators at £10 an hour plus 50 per cent commission, the BBC reports.

Anna Ellis-Jones, who's studying for a Masters degree in heritage management, spied the "sad, pitiful and depressing" opportunties in Jobcentre tentacles in Llangefni, Anglesey, and Bangor, Gwynedd. The company in question was seeking "adults aged 18+ for immediate start either from home or from employer site in Mitcham, Surrey".

The ads continued: "Guaranteed minimum wages per four hour shift. Duties require the successful applicant to be nude/semi-nude. Vacancy not suitable for under-18s. Please note that there is no obligation to consider making an application for this vacancy."

Ellis-Jones thundered: "It is just bonkers in this day and age when we are encouraging safety for children on the internet, to come across job adverts like this."

However, a Department of Work and Pensions spokesperson countered that it had an obligation to advertise the posts, "following a legal ruling in 2003". He or she splendidly noted that nude wecam operator ads constituted "less than 0.016 per cent of all vacancies advertised by Jobcentre Plus", and insisted: "We have a range of measures in place to safeguard jobseekers wishing to work in the adult entertainment industry." ®
