Who says there are no jobs in France? France's national employment agency Pôle Emploi has been ridiculed after publishing a job advert from a company looking for male and female porn actors, who've "dreamed about becoming stars". Beginners are welcome to apply.

With record high unemployment French authorities are under immense pressure to get all fit and able jobseekers back into work.

And it seems the state employment agency is ready to promote job vacancies for all kinds of paid work, and that includes the sex industry.

Pôle Emploi caused a stir in France this week by carrying an advert on its website for male and female porn actors for “all those who dream of becoming a star”, reported French website 20 Minutes.

“We are a major production house for X-rated films and we are looking to recruit very serious and independent people to make them into a porn star,” reads the ad from Academy Sex & Productions.

The advert is included in the Arts/Drama section of the agency’s website.

Details of the salary on offer are not included, but the ad suggests that no previous experience is required, with the words “Beginners Welcome”.

As you would expect the Twittersphere has had some fun once news of the advert reached them.

“I’d love to see the face of the jobseeker when they are proposed a job as a porn star by their adviser,” tweeted Ambroise Bouleis.

“Jobs, there are some,” joked Cédric Garrofé.

Julien Guibert said: “And yes, Pôle Emploi offers us a bright future in arts and drama, well in pornos…”
