Fed-up with being unemployed, one savvy girl has taken matters into her own hands.
Nikki Friend from Sutton has stripped down to her underwear for a magazine in order to help enhance her chances of getting a job.
Job-hunter Nikki appears in this week’s Zoo magazine feature “Gimme A Job!”.
The 21-year-old blonde has nine GCSEs and four A-levels as well as a degree from the “university of life”.
She said: “I’ve been a dancer, fitness instructor, actress and manager of an agency.
“My most recent position was as a sales rep.”
Her ideal job, she said, would be “a topless motivational speaker”.
Zoo editor Ben Todd added: “We’ve decided to showcase the impressive talents of jobless females to potential new employers.
“We’ve made it completely non-discriminative: by removing their clothes, we’ve removed the preconceptions.
“We’ve all got to do our bit to help beat the recession.”
