Clearly impressed with her experience, the 27-year-old was offered the position after passing a telephone interview with ‘flying colours’.

, who got the intricate tattoo that extends from her forefinger, over her hand and on to her forearm 18 months ago, vented her anger on Facebook. She told her followers:

‘I got a new job today! And then I got sacked within half an hour. I had a telephone interview today with for a retail merchandiser and was happy when at the end of the phone call she told me I had the position and would be starting next week. The company then sent me an e-mail with their dress standards. As I read it I was gutted as they noted that all tattoos must be covered up as they are likely to cause offence.

Thinking that this was an ‘old standard e-mail the company sent out’, Claire contacted Dee Set, hoping that their views had changed and explained that her emblem wouldn’t affect her work.

She continued: ‘I have 6 years previous experience in managerial roles and my tattoos have never been an issue. That is until I applied for a role with Dee Set that work with Tesco, Asda, Boots and other chains. I was shocked when they replied and said they would no longer be employing me as I would not be able to cover my tattoos. They clearly thought I had something to offer and would be the right person for the job as they had already offered me the position,’ she said.
