Employers seek only 'beautiful' applicants

A controversial dating site that excludes ugly or average-looking people is expanding into recruitment.

BeautifulPeople.com is preparing a new feature to allow employers to set up a business profile and gain access to the site's 750,000 "beautiful" members.

"If an employer has the choice between two people with equal qualifications, but one is attractive and the other is ugly, most employers are going to go for the attractive person," BeautifulPeople.com founder Greg Hodge told The Sunday Times.

"It's not illegal.

"Customers respond better to businesses if they have attractive employees.

"And in these tough economic times companies are waking up to this."

BeautifulPeople.com is a dating website exclusively for good-looking people, with membership applicants voted in or out by their peers based on a photograph.

The site claims modelling scouts and talent agencies already use it as a source of future employees.
