A building boss has told "snowflakes" not to bother applying for a job at his company as he looks to avoid unsuitable candidates for the “hard work”.
Adam Weedon, from Chatham, Kent, posted the job advert on social media and caused a stir as he looked to fill a full-time labouring position at his company, Ad-A-Brick Building Services.
The 40-year-old says he has gone through ten "workshy" blokes in a year after claiming they "love their phone and want their mummy to pamper them".
In the advert, he described what the role entails, the rate of pay and that a driving licence is required, but reveals the role is "hard work, so no snowflakes need apply".
The job ad, posted on December 14, reads: "JOB ADVERT FOR JANUARY ONWARDS. Full-time labouring position, pay dependent on experience, hard work so no snowflakes need apply. Driving licence preferred or close to Walderslade."
The tongue in cheek advert, posted on his business page on Facebook, was to weed out unsuitable candidates after his experiences with his previous workers.
Adam claimed to have unsuccessfully hired "10 blokes" aged 30 or under over the last 12 months who walked off the job because they found the role "too hard".

Speaking to KentLive, he said: "I've been looking for a building labourer and wrote the 'no snowflake' advert as everyone nowadays wants a job but doesn't want to work for the money.
"I've had 10 people over the course of a year. They all love their phones too much and find the work, such as pushing a wheelbarrow, laying slabs and doing drives and pathways, too hard.
"I wrote the ad as they're [the people previously hired] are not fitting the bill – they're workshy, on their phone and want their mummy to pamper them.”

Adam said he grew frustrated after they failed to “turn up the next day because it's too hard."
He said the amount of unsuccessful hires left him reaching the end of his tether.
Adam added: "The decision to write the ad had been bubbling up for a while. I've got mates who own their own companies and they all say the same thing [about workers].
"It's getting pretty tiring. I'm still looking for someone, I'll give them a try and see where it goes from there.
"The answer for the time being is working on my own. I might as well jump in and out the digger and get the job done myself."
