Hi Nicholas

In the UK, recent legislation has ruled that you can't discriminate on
age when advertising a post.

See http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/5326774.stm
for more info.

In a nutshell, you can't (or shouldn't according to the law) advertise
jobs based on years of experience but rather on skills and
Thus your notion of rating a particular skill level is probably best.
Again in the UK the National Health Service(NHS) has recently gone
through a
period of evaluating every job role in it's organisation (3rd largest
employer in the world) and settled on having a system called the
Knowledge and
Skills framework, a large mapping of every role in the NHS to a new pay scale.

See http://www.skillsforhealth.org.uk/ksfcomps.php

for an example of  types of levels used.  I think the idea of having
some sort of levels are great, however I would worry down the line
about job spam, a problem already on Job sites, where recruitment
agencies post non-existent jobs to get CV's.

Hope that helps a bit,
Dan Hilton
