AN ADVERT for a job in a bar in the province of A Coruña, Galicia has sparked so much outrage that the regional government has issued a statement condemning the wording.

The sits vac post went viral on social networks within minutes of being released due to the wording being 'blatantly sexist'.

Working conditions were very favourable – a full-time salary of €1,500 a month with a permanent job contract given on day one, which is very rare, and the option of accommodation for staff members who had to relocate.

But the required worker was described as: “Hard-working female offering friendly customer service essential, very attractive and a bit tarty.”

The bar has not been named but was described as 'an hour from Santiago de Compostela, and 15 minutes from Arzúa and Órdenes'.

Hundreds of furious comments accompanied the re-posted advert under the hashtag #elmachismomata ('sexism kills').

Socialist MP in the Galicia regional government, Carmen Gallego, publicly criticised the advert for being discriminatory and damaging to women.

The post was only online for a matter of minutes before the flood of fury led to its being taken down.
