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

As a Recruitment Professional with 11 years of experience within the Built Environment industry I have learnt that to truly hone your skill and add value to your clients you will need to spend at least 5 years recruiting into that sector.

This is because during this time you will likely have identified and interviewed in excess of 5,000 skilled candidates and been responsible for identifying in excess of 2,500 skilled personnel for your clients.

As such offering a skilled recruitment professional a 2 year VISA will not attract any from overseas where they will have developed these deep networks allowing them to attract talent to Australia which is desperately need especially within the Built Environment.

Solely focusing on local recruitment talent will create a brain drain where recruiters will not be able to access networks overseas due to not having recruited in that space previously.
