A man has drawn attention to himself for all the wrong reasons after posting an ad for a personal assistant.

Posting on the I Know A Guy Facebook page asking for candidates, Mark Sham said he wanted someone ‘to help me with my daily admin and be my left brain.’

Sham, who appears to be the CEO of a company called Impello, then listed requirements for the job, with one in particular causing offence.

‘Female under the age of 25,’ it read.

While some people appeared to be keen to apply for the job, many were quick to remark on the unusual criteria, which included ‘not be married or have kids because there is travel involved’.

He also requested any applicants send a two-minute video to his Faceook inbox instead of submitting a resume.

‘This ad is illegal. You may not discriminate on those grounds for this position,’ one person wrote.

‘And if your skirt is below the knee, don’t bother,’ another quipped.
