    It's a scam.

    Apart from the ludicrous salary, way too small if annual, way too large if monthly, most of the terms are illegal under UK employment law. The English is terrible and I bet the contact telephone numbers are +4470 numbers. Redirectable numbers that are never used by UK businesses. They are used exclusively by scammers to lead you to believe that you are dealing with someone in the UK, you are not. The name Jones Goodluck is a West AFrican name. This is a classic 419 Nigerian scam.

    UK employers cannot employ non EU nationals unless they are licenced by the Home Office to do so and there is a recruitment process that they have to follow as they cannot offer a job to a non EU national unless they have advertised the post.in trade and national press and across the job centre network. Only if no suitably qualified applicant from the EU applies can they offer the job to a non EU applicant. You would have to be interviewed, there is no way any UK company is going to offer a job to someone they have not interviewed.

    Unless you have a degree level qualification and extensive experience you stand no chance of getting a visa or competing in the job market in the UK. A hotel would be unable to get permission to employ anyone less than senior management level if they are non EEA nationals.

    If you reply to this, you will eventually be asked to contact a fake lawyer, embassy official or travel agency to process your visa. You will be asked to pay by Western Union.

    The ONLY way UK visas are ever issued is in the country of the applicant from a visa application centre, usually a High Commission or Embassy. The UK employer would issue you with a Certificate of Sponsorship which you take to the visa application centre with your documents (bank statements, education and qualifications certificates, etc) and a fee of £270 which you pay direct to them. There you will be photographed and finger printed as part of the process. Visas are never processed in the UK and never by third parties, either lawyers or agencies. Your only cost would be the visa cost. All other costs are handled by the employer.

    Nobody can guarantee you a visa and nobody can apply on your behalf.

    No legitimate organisation in the UK would ask you to send money by Western Union - EVER! They all have bank accounts, so why would they need to use WU? There are some golden rules you should observe when dealing with people on the Internet and the first and most important is that you never, never pay for anything by Western Union or Moneygram. No legitimate business uses this method of transferring money and you may as well burn your money as it is untraceable and irretrievable.

    Have nothing more to do with these people and beware of any future approaches by email, they are almost always a scam.

    Oh my! Thank you for that - I haven't laughed so much in ages!

    Apart from Maggie's excellent analysis - I would only disagree with her in one point, these unsolicited email job offers are not "almost always" scams, they are ALWAYS FRAUDULENT, without exception.

    I was amused that the supposed job offer from a hotel includes the clause "ARTICLE 4: Employee to Devote Full Time to LANCASTER HOTEL UK . The Employee will devote full time, attention, and energies to the business of the Aviation industry..." - a hotel, in the aviation industry? These scammers are so lazy they're not even attempting to tailor their scams to different victims. They have obviously "borrowed" this letter from a scammer who was purporting to be an airline.

    As for the laughable salary - the scammers are clearly foreigners who have no conception of the value of British money. £6000 a month AFTER TAX would probably translate to a gross annual salary of around £120,000, which is five or six times the national average salary. This is the sort of salary a cabinet minister gets, not a hotel worker. Oh, and the whole 6 days notice of termination without cause is wholly illegal in UK employment law - once you have completed any probationary period you acquire rights to particular notice period depending on the length of time you've worked; dismissing someone without cause is a breach of employment law and you can take the employer to an Employment Tribunal.

    Finally, the standard of English in this "contract" is abysmal. No native speaker from the UK would use this phraseology, and no reputable company would allow such a document to be published in its name.

    As everyone says, don't touch this nonsense with a bargepole.

    Fake, scam. These hotel scams are really common. Nobody in the UK would give you a real job without talking to you in interview face-to-face. Also £6000 a month is very very high. That's probably more than what the hotel's senior manager is earning. Customer Relations staff would expect to earn more like £1000 - 1500 a month.

    last year the government brought in a new law in the UK for goods and services on the grounds of sexuality most goods and services are covered by this including hotels but not bed and breakfasts if it was a public hotel and not a bed and breakfast then they have breached the act of law out of homophobia something which still goes on regardless of the new laws i think its best if you speak to someone like a legal adviser or solicitor for more info on the sexual orientations act 2007 goods and services within uk law the law itself came into force april last year. but either way this kind of homophobic attitude is not fit in modern britain but it goes to show even though same sex marriage is legal now homophobic attitudes are still rife in a country that suppose to be liberal now its about time this country got a grip and stopped picking on harmless people

    It's a scam.

    Did you apply for the job? Have they ever met you? Why would they offer you a job without an interview?

    They want your money and/or your identity.

    Treat them with contempt and ignore it.
