    Default European Job ads - "Must have a EU-27 citizenship" - denied?

    Anybody UK folk looking at working in Switzerland, Luxembourg etc seeing this stuff?

    Would you be applying anyway under the understanding that you are "in theory" still under the same rights until December 2020, or am I deluding myself and the Europeans are basically going to shun us until we hand over some fish or something...?

    UK should do the same in reverse MUST have UK citizenship as surely if EU can openly do this it cannot be illegal to discriminate in the UK can it!

    You can discriminate in the UK if you don't get caught. Women and ethic minorities suffer from this.

    These are job ads. It's recruitment speak for "we'll only offer clients people who definitely won't need work permits".

    It would be odd to see an EU-27 citizenship requirement in an advert for a Swiss job, since Switzerland isn't in the EU.

    That's what you get for voting Brexit. No sympathy here...

    I would’ve thought that too, but just note they are specifically writing now “EU-27” and not “permitted to work in the EU” or something similar. It’s the specificity of the thing that seems a bit of a technical f-off from our mountain friends. And yes strangely these were for Swiss jobs regardless of the illogic of it...
