223112 Recruitment Consultant

Please outline the evidence or data that would support these occupations being added to the MLTSSL.

I would consider removing recruitment consultant to be detrimental to our business and the clients to whom we recruit on behalf of. As a global financial services technology recruitment specialist company we rely upon very technical recruiters whom have a deep understating of both technology & recruitment to help service and support the banks and FinTech clients whom rely upon us to find them highly skilled technologists.

iKas Sydney have been trying to double our headcount for the past 12 moths as a result of client demand mainly from Commonwealth Bank of Australia, Westpac, ANZ, NAB,, Deutsche Ban & Tyro payments to name but a few.

Unfortunately when adverting for recruitment consultants we rarely get a skilled reciter apply and in-fact are often unskilled or not relevant to be able to perform the duties required of them, or provide a satisfactory solution for our clients.

I can see that in Australia there are currently 3,330 skilled Technology recruitment consultant
jobs vacancies and 5,253 other skilled recruitment consultant vacancies proving this to be a very under skilled market which is in desperate need of off-shore skilled workers to help support the industry as a whole given so many local & multinational companies reply upon our services and skills to help them achieve their employment needs for economic growth of the Australian economy.
