A new job advert from Sainsbury’s has caused a stir online.
The supermarket chain is currently looking for an artist to help redesign its canteen in their Camden outlet in London.
The only issue is, it appears Sainsbury’s do not plan to pay any money to the artist who gets the nod.
The advert, spotted by comedian Adam Hess has since gone viral, with many criticising a Sainsbury’s for asking for free labour.

Many picked red flag phrases that normally indicate unpaid work.

It’s devolved into a minor PR gaffe for Sainsbury’s as people continue to ask how one of the leading supermarkets in the UK cannot pay someone for the job role.
