have seen a few job postings for consultancy positions advertised in europe,

france, germany, switz etc

they all have f/m or m/w at the end of the job title.

Senior Consultant f/m

Enterprise Consultant m/w

Is this full/time part/time ?

Do you really not know?

The is European PC gone OTT.

The company are making it clear that either sex may apply.

In the UK this is, of course, taken as read, but apparently not in Europe.

The latter is for when they want contractors.

Ah this looks like a translation.

In England everybody is a Developer, but in Germany there are male developers and female developers a bit like waiter and waitress. So the translator probably puts on m/f to translate this.
