Slug and Lettuce kitchen supervisor Angela Borsi, who requested for ‘boys first’ in a Fb advert so they might do the heavy lifting
A Slug and Lettuce kitchen supervisor has been slammed for posting a job advert asking for male candidates solely – to allow them to do the heavy lifting.
Angela Borsi, who works on the Bristol Harbourside department of the bar chain, was criticised for requesting ‘boys first’ in a Fb put up.
The advert, posted to the ‘Jobs in Bristol and Surrounding Areas’ web page, learn: ‘Chef job! In Slug and Lettuce Bristol Harbourside. Boys first, if doable :)’.
Ms Borsi was branded sexist and predatory for requesting male-only candidates.
Natasha Mondon commented: ‘Wow, if this is not essentially the most sexist put up I’ve seen immediately’.
Yaro Yarick requested: ‘Are you on the lookout for boyfriend of chef???’
However Ms Borsi defended her advert, saying the £8-an-hour position for 40-45 hours every week required a powerful particular person for the heavy lifting concerned.
She informed BristolLive: ‘I do not assume it is nothing unhealthy – the individuals are pondering unhealthy about that, I did not desire a boyfriend.
‘I’ve two women within the kitchen already, one is me and the opposite is pregnant and we’d like a person for the heavy lifting, once we do an oil change, it’s 20 litre containers and they’re heavy – that is the explanation I put “boys first”.’
Below UK legislation, employers should not present any type of gender discrimination with no ‘real occupational requirement’.

‘With out one, any language within the job advert regarding gender desire might be seen as discriminatory.

‘Even with seemingly good intentions from a recruiter (corresponding to making an attempt to even up the gender break up within the workplace, for instance), favouring a person or girl for a selected position is usually not acceptable.’
