Given that the thread's an old one and he says

you're only 20 years old. I'm sure
I can mould you into something

maybe the photo's important.

Anyone considering working for Chris Bradbury should be aware that he was using blatantly illegal contracts (umowa o dzieło - the tax office has more or less ruled these to be unacceptable, and it means that he was avoiding pension and healthcare payments to workers), that he has openly lied about employing qualified teachers and so on.

whats with Polish (and german) employers or uk expats in Poland asking for a cv photo? Whats someone's appearance got to do with their ability to get a job done ?

It's got absolutely nothing to do with it, and Bradders should be ashamed. I wonder how his clients would feel about him offering employment to completely unqualified 20 year olds? Ah wait, Bradders himself is totally unqualified :D

(mods - if you have any issue with what I've said, let me know and I'll link to the evidence.)

actually eh, I am not sure of the legality of it.
As far as I can see, it could be agist, sexist or racist.....
but tbh it is an employer's market....

...Although I know it is normal in Germany for example...
As for this guy asking for a photo...well for English teaching jobs one is often hired over the phone, so I suppose that is why they ask.....

this guy sounds funny though.
I certainly would not like to be 'moulded into something of self worth' by him...:)

I worked on such in the not-too distant past though Delph, and simply wrote "consulting services" in Polish... never had any comeback. Though I must say when those PIS blighters get elected in the autumn they will be auditing your pets, as well as your income :(
eh?

From what I know, they've really started to clamp down on it unless it's genuinely a "dzieło". I know that it used to be perfectly acceptable and everyone was using it to pay only 9.5% tax, but these days... Word is that they're also going to start putting a stop to umowa zlecenie being used for clearly directed work such as teaching - which will really hurt a lot of language schools.

Mind you, one look at the website belonging to Bradders should tell you all you need to know :D

I do love old Bradders trying to be serious though - he actually applied for a job as a sheik-entertainer in Warsaw once :D
