A job seeker could not believe her eyes and ears when she came across a job vacancy on a job website that requires her to be fully naked while cleaning for her clients.
To make it worse, the opening with Fantasy Cleans was posted on government website Universal Jobmatch.
The woman in her 30s from Yorkshire, who asked not to be named, said she was “embarrassed and distressed”.
She added: “I thought that sort of attitude of the objectification of women was in the past.”
The Fantasy Cleans job ad, marked “cleaners with a difference”, offers workers between £25 and £50 an hour.
Under a picture of a blonde women on the floor holding a brush and wearing lingerie and rubber gloves, clients who pay up to £100 an hour, are told: “Sit back while they do all the dirty work. We are happy to assist you with any requests you have.”
Successful job applicants are told that could mean being asked to dress up in “outfits of the clients’ choice” which may be “fully clothed, in lingerie, or naked”.
They are also warned clients might choose to be naked during 9am-5.30pm slots, Monday to Friday and by special appointment at weekends.
When the shocked jobseeker told her MP what she was being offered via the government jobs site, Labour’s Naz Shah said: “My staff were absolutely appalled.
“The constituent, a single woman on Jobseeker’s Allowance, facing extreme financial hardship, drew our attention to the advert on the government’s own job search platform.”
Cleaners do not have to provide products, but they are told: “Bring a smile, a pair of gloves and footwear.”
Customers can pay for female or male cleaners, clothed or fully naked, or two cleaners together with hourly rates of £25 to £100.
The advert however remembered to add: “Please note we do not offer any services of a sexual nature.”
