A middle-aged father has won a £7,500 payout in an age and sex discrimination case after being rejected for an NHS job because he wouldn't fit in with the 'millennial' women who already worked at the trust.
Despite being the best-performing candidate in an interview and scoring highest on all the tests, Neil McClements, 50, was rejected for a project manager post after potential colleagues at Guy's and St Thomas' NHS trust in London were consulted on his application.
A hearing was told they thought the father-of-two was 'nothing like' the young woman he would be replacing and they felt he wouldn't fit in.
So, a much younger female candidate in her 20s was selected instead, even though she had performed less well in her interview.
The role - which paid around £40,000 a year - involved helping the health service adapt to new technology more quickly.
