Whites only job advert causes a stir

Whites only job advert causes a stir
Published: 22 October 2017 (240 Views)
Production experts in the TV industry could not believe their eyes when they saw an advert posted online for a senior position.

Looking to hire a commissioning editor in Johannesburg at an annual salary of R800 000, the ad read: "Please note: We are specifically looking for a white, English-speaking commissioning editor as this role is for someone who will produce soapies and programmes in this specific demographic."

Alerting City Press about the patently racist ad, one source - who does not wish to be named for fear of jeopardising their employment prospects - applied for the position and engaged with the recruitment agency, Kandhi Consulting.

The position, they were told, was for M-Net.

"They were specific about the TV station being M-Net, the kind of contracts M-Net offers, the psychometric tests that it does, etcetera."

M-Net has distanced itself from the ad, saying it was not authorised and that the work had been subcontracted by its agency to another recruitment outfit without the company's knowledge.
