Default Fancy a PA job in the UK? £80,000

https://www.linkedin.com/jobs/view/459074165/

Glamour! Modeling! But it comes with catches.....

Masseuse: Must have massage skills, or willing to learn or do a course (paid for by the Boss), to learn how to apply massage techniques to help the Boss relax after a long days work. He regularly goes a few times a week, so the candidate must be willing to do massages as and when required.


Is this advert even legal?

A Russian/EE girl will get the job.

FYI job is being advertised through the UAE and boss seems to be a local.

Anyway, upon closer analysis I think it's fake.

The employer is listed as Phoenix Media Group, which is a legit outfit.

But the advert starts out as:

"Hi all,

My name is Mariam, HR Manager for a busy group of Businesses / Directors...."

No HR manager would open a job advert like that. Especially as there's no link to Mariam's LinkedIn profile.

Why is the employer listed as Phoenix when she refers to a busy group of businesses and directors? Phoenix is a proper media company, not a group of businesses.

Is this a ploy to get unsuspecting women into a studio and have naked photos taken? Human trafficking? Are the bars of Bur Dubai suddenly short of the usual ladies of the night?

I'm curious how you found this ad. Have you got an alert set up for modelling jobs? Masseuse jobs?

I keep trying to get my monthly savings to exceed my monthly income but can never quite make that work out so I'm in the market for a part time second job

Don't worry, I have my own standards. No hairy backs. Or manboobs.
