Hospital advertises for ‘TV series-hot’ nursesLondon -  A Swedish hospital has posted an online job recruitment ad targeting sexy nurses. The advert, posted by Stockholm’s South General Hospital, aims at recruiting nurses to work during the summer holidays.

The ad reads: ‘You will be motivated, professional, and have a sense of humour. And of course, you will be TV series-hot or a Soder hipster.

“Throw in a nurse’s education and you are welcome to seek a summer job at Sodersjukhuset’s emergency department.”

Nursing manager Jorgen Andersson fended off criticism of the ‘sexist’ advert and said that it was written to attract people’s attention.

“We’re looking to recruit competent nurses above all,” the Daily Mail quoted Andersson as telling The Local.

“But we wanted to stick out a bit with our advertising campaign. We managed to do that. We think that people understand that it was written to catch people’s attention.

“There’s been no negative feedback,” he said.

On being asked whether applicants needed to attach a photograph to their CV, he said that it would not make any difference.

“Of course, being good looking is no requirement at all. We put out an ad looking for interest and we got a great response.

“We want a nurse who is qualified and good at their job, regardless of looks,” he explained.

“We want people to be curious and have a little imagination,” head nurse Elisabeth Gauffin added.
