M-Net disenganged Recruitment agency over Racist job advert that says ‘only whites need apply’

South African TV channel, M-Net has distanced itself from a “whites only” job opening advertised at the company.

M-Net job advert was posted online on a recruitment agency website and it reads; 'we are specifically looking for a white, English-speaking commissioning editor as this role is for someone who will produce soapies and programmes in this specific demographic'.

M-Net has fired the recruitment company responsible, saying it did not authorise the advert, and the process was reportedly managed by Ambit Recruitment who inturn subcontracted another group without M-Net's on the know.

M-Net CEO Yolisa Phahle is quoted as saying:  'M-Net was absolutely appalled to learn about this advert. We would never advertise for a position in this way. It is clearly racist, against the constitution and against our values'.
