To think this is so cheeky?!

On a local FB selling page:

"Would you thrive in a creative buzzy working environment based around media, music, TV and film?
We are an entertainment agency, trading since 2001, and have worked with high profile clients such as Jennifer Lopez, Black Eyed Peas, Kylie Minogue, Samsung, Google, Adidas, Reebok etc and are looking to expand.
Based in a funky office in [London borough] we are looking to recruit a charismatic, reliable, proactive executive assistant to work along our casting director in placing dancers and models in shows, tours, TV magazine and billboard adverts, catwalk, and music videos in the UK and abroad.
A recent background in Media/TV/Film/music business and contacts in that area would be an advantage. Our ideal candidate would have a good eye for casting which can be developed over time.
You would also need to be an all-rounder: an administrative whizz, who is proficient at Excel and has project management skills, be sales-oriented as well as having hard back office skills.
Daily office duties will also include the banking so a creative with book-keeping skills would be an added bonus but not imperative. Work would be based in [London borough] with occasional location visits in the London area.
For the right person, we would consider flexible working hours with 25 hours a week in the office.
For someone who would really like to get stuck in with castings, an additional commission structure attached to your base salary could be an option too."

I have found company name through detective work and they were only recently established - it reads from the ad that they are essentially trying to get contacts off the new recruit - not to mention downright lying in the first para?!

I'm always wary of companies that established that feel they need to use Facebook to advertise. You've worked with Jlo and Black Eyed Peas yet recruit on Facebook?!

I'd avoid like the plague

Wanting people in certain roles to (ideally) come with a 'black book' of contacts is pretty standard.
