Looking on seek at jobs etc and came across a government primary school role that stated the following as a Condition of Employment.
This role is identified as available for African heritage applicants only. Confirmation of your African heritage may be requested.
Just intrigued to know if I'm the only jobseeker out there, feeling like race is an obstacle in the job market before I even get to the interview.
I don't think it's right for race to be a Condition of Employment. Language, i get it. But race? This just feels like blatant positive discrimination aka discrimination.
It's hard enough to find a job, now my heritage can either get me a job, or close the door in my face.
How do others feel about it? Thoughts?

Btw to anyone wanting popcorn, I've got a few from a recent half price promo, we can share 😁
Although my intention was to genuinely get others opinions, i have noticed that the job ad has now been removed off multiple platforms including Seek. Does make one wonder why.
