Following up on the development of JobBridge an interesting find sent in by a reader.
Uniphar advertised on Jobs.ie for a Warehouse Supervisor last week.
A few days later an advert for a Warehouse Supervisor appeared on JobBridge.ie – exact same job, no pay and no contribution to the wages from Uniphar.
The farce was brought to the National Employment and Entitlement Service’s attention and the advert for internship has been removed. How did it get there in the first place? Dogs get rehomed more carefully than this. How do we know if all the other posts being offered are not previously advertised by companies or fillers in for those made redundant.
Maybe they can explain why there are internships for Kitchen Porters in Hotels considered suitable for this programme? If the Old Ground Hotel in Ennis cannot afford to hire a Kitchen Porter or has let staff go then how can it be allowed to get labour for free? Other hotels in Ennis who pay wages and PRSI are surely being disadvantaged?
Update: I’ve heard that members of Boards.ie are closely examining internships and job advertisements. Great Stuff!
