UK Age Discrimination & Job Ads

Age discrimination is a big problem in British society and some job ads are targetting younger employees to avoid paying higher wages or for other reasons.

This is just one example from of a job ad in Kent:-

“The XXX organisation is seeking to recruit a full time receptionist for their main office located in Sevenoaks.

The role will be responsible for operating the Group switchboard, meeting and greeting visitors to the building as well as providing assistance to the Facilities department during busy periods.

This would be an ideal role for a school or college leaver, looking to start their career within an office environment.”

Beaulieu has got in touch with the Equalities and Human Rights Commission and ACAs for their comments. The organisation concerned has also been contacted.

If you see any other similar job adverts,  please show them to us and share your experiences of age discrimination and any positive outcomes.
