End our job centre ad ban, says Ann Summers

Ann
Summers wants legislation banning it from advertising at JobCentres overturned.

Under
current legislation, the High Street retailer cannot place vacancies at the
JobCentres because it is deemed to be in the sex industry.

The
company, which employees 650 staff, is expanding, and will need up to 1,000 new
staff within the next two years, according to HR executive Gary Burgham. He
said the company wants to be on a level playing field with other retailers.

Other
government departments do not consider the stores sex shops, and they do not
need a sex shop licence to trade.

The
Department of Work and Pensions said it is considering chief executive
Jacqueline Gold’s request for a reclassification.
