An Australian-themed restaurant has drawn criticism over a racy job advert on its Facebook page.
The ad is for a shift on Saturday, and describes the ideal candidate as a ‘Sheila with nice bazookas’.
It goes onto list other desirable as a ‘great smile’ and ‘smart lower regions’.
The owner of the restaurant has defended the posting, saying that it’s just ‘typical Aussie banter’, GrimsbyLive reports.
The full listing for the job, which has now been taken down from the establishment’s Facebook page, read:
“Vacancy for a Sheila with nice bazookas, must have a great smile and smart lower regions but not talk a lot.
“Must be fully conversant with Aussie Footy, 4x4s and eat steak cooked no more than medium rare.
“Being nice to the landlord at all times will result in an undisclosed bonus system which the landlady needs no knowledge of… ever.
“Tattoos, body piercing, Botox, silicone implants are all allowed but must be read or checked by the landlord on a weekly basis.
“Uniform is provided to the lucky Sheila. Please message Charlotte for an interview. G’Day mates.”
The listing received as many as 15 ‘likes’, ‘loves’ and ‘haha’ reactions on Facebook, as well as several comments before it was taken down.
But a Marshchapel resident, who wishes to not be named, says that they have seen numerous complaints about the post.

The resident said: “I don’t think the advert is right even in jest. I don’t think it’s funny. We’re meant to be working towards inclusivity. It has antagonised residents.”
And what is more this is not the first post to have caused an issue or to have been taken down shortly after it was posted, the resident claims.
But owner of The Outback Frank Walsh, who spent about 10 years in Australia after joining the Australian navy as an engineer, defended the post as “just typical Aussie banter”.
“It’s just a joke,” he said, “all our friends got it straight away. It’s a pure joke. It’s ridiculous to think anything else.
“Of course I’m not going to check tattoos, body piercings or any of the other stuff. The post is just a bit of banter.”
Frank initially opened the restaurant during the coid-19 pandemic, and was able to start welcoming customers as restrictions eased.
