Ruapehu radio station Ski FM has issued an apology after posting job adverts that joked about sexual harassment and included racist and ableist language.
A statement issued by Central Media Group on behalf of Ski FM admitted the listings "lacked respect and consideration" and "missed the mark completely".
The station, owned by former broadcaster Ian Stables, said it was conducting a "thorough review of workplace practices" after and that it was "deeply sorry" for the "stress and upset" the comments had caused.
Whistle-blowing Instagram account Beneath The Glass Ceiling (BTGC) drew attention to the job listings on Wednesday after they were shared online a day earlier by the independent station.
One post looking for a full-time on-air presenter stated that applications would "love our MediaWorks inspired 'Sexual harassment Sundays' (BYO)," according to a screenshot shared on BTGC's Instagram Story.
MediaWorks, which is currently undergoing an independent investigation into its workplace culture, told Newshub it was "disappointed" by the remarks, adding it had no affiliation with Ski FM.
More outrage was caused when another Ski FM job listing for a work experience intern was uncovered, revealing a long list of racist language.
"We would love to hear from you, whether you are an annoying South African, English, Australian White Trash, Black, Asian with a $120,000 black Lexus that your father, the arms dealer who lives in Guangdong Province bought you, a loud-speaking German of non-specific gender, or even Punjab," the ad read, via another screenshot shared on BTGC.
The listing was later amended to remove the comments about race but was replaced with a statement that appeared to make light of the exclusion of wheelchair users.
It has since been removed from the Ski FM website.
Ski FM described the comments as "succinct details to add context to the vacancy advertisements" but admitted they "fell short and hurt people".
The statement insisted "bias, discrimination, sexual harassment, racism, or any forms of bullying" had no place at the station.
"We have zero tolerance for this," the statement continued.
"Our brand does not align with any of these behaviours. We pride ourselves in supporting an inclusive and diverse culture to help staff learn and grow within our industry brands.
"We take responsibility for our actions and have certainly learnt from this."
