Female Skipper(s)

Hi,

I need a couple of Female skippers for a client this year and at the same time we are always looking for skippers. If you know any Adv PB drivers with Comm ticket then please get in touch.

Would you like to be paid for driving new Scorpion 8.1's?

Regards
Stuart

I assume that there is some reason that they need to be women, which fulfils the requirements of a Genuine Occupational Qualification - as per the sex discrimination act?

Probably don't want some dirty letch as a skipper or the boat is going to be full of dirty old letches

But yes you must consider the legislation!

Guys, thanks for the replies.

With regard to points, simple really, client wants a female skipper.

I on the other hand do not mind or indeed specify what sex you are. Just have to be good at what I employ you for and I don't mean just driving a rib either.

I know Julie, as I did my YM conversion to power with her as the instr. I will check but don't think Julie is powerboat instr qualified.

Once again thanks to those that replied.


Regards
Stuart

Stuart - your client is likely to be breaking the law by asking you to discriminate (unless I am missing the point and one of the very narrow range of Genuine Occupational Qualifications applies in this instance - which I think is unlikely).

If you assist him to discriminate you are also likely be breaking the law.

Even your "advert" here could be considered to be in breach of the Sex Discrimination Act as it suggests an intent to discriminate.
