London, Jul 7 (ANI): A jobcentre looking for a candidate to host a pornographic television channel has shocked many with its advertisement.

The advert for the position of 'Adult TV Channel Presenter' was on the Jobcentre Plus website, and it states that the successful candidate would be required to work 'semi-nude'.

And also that the job 'may cause embarrassment to some people', although it pays 220 pounds per shift.

The winning applicant will work three days a week from 9pm until 5am, but will have no pension entitlement.

"Duties involve explicit sexual dialogue which may cause embarrassment to some people," the Telegraph quoted the advert as reading.

"The successful applicant (will be) required to be semi-nude.

"Duties will involve working on a well known adult TV channel which may cause embarrassment to some people.

"Must have good spoken communication skills as will be taking calls from the general public live on air," it stated.

The ad for the London-based job also states that applicants have to be aged over 18.

"There is no obligation to consider making an application for this vacancy," it added.

A spokesman for Revolver Models, which placed the ad, said that applications had to go through the Jobcentre, but said the applicant did not have to send photos of themselves to the company.

"We are looking for a male or a female to take this role," he said.

The firm's website also states that 'TV work is now available', adding: "Do you love to perform in front of a TV camera? Are you looking for a well-paid job? Are you comfortable with nudity? If the answer is yes to all of the above then contact us for more details (no sex involved)."

Sophie Randall-Price, 25, who is looking for a job and saw the advert, was a little surprised.

"I couldn't believe when I saw this," she said.

"I'm broad-minded, but to think they want us to apply to such a sleazy job is really a bit too much.

"I'm willing to work hard, but I'm not willing to whip my top off and talk dirty to a bunch of weirdos in the middle of the night on national TV," she added.

A spokesman for the Department for Work and Pensions said: "The Jobcentre Plus has a duty to advertise any legal job." (ANI)
