FURIOUS jobseekers hit out at a recruitment agency after it advertised a UK job... in Polish only.

Employment giant Reed was accused of ignoring unemployed Brits desperate for work.

The £7-an-hour admin job was based in Dartford, Kent, and out-of-work builder Daniel Hoult, 20, from Dagenham, east London, spotted the vacancy on reed.co.uk

He fumed: “It’s an insult. I’ve been out of work through cheap, foreign labour. I went on to the website to look for office work and found this advert in Polish.

“I thought we were supposed to have British jobs for British workers. It's just a mockery."

Re: Unemployment caused by Eastern Europeans?

My goodness!
These lazy foreigners, eh? Always wanting to work, can you credit it? Outrageous!! And then when they don't want to work it's just as bad - what a bunch of wasters
By the way, that advert was removed pretty quickly - I saw it disappear (ages ago) before my very eyes!
