223112 Recruitment Consultant

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

The recruitment industry employs 1000's of people generating 100's of millions of $ in state and federal taxes. Finding local talent is our preference and despite being well remunerated on the whole it is extremely difficult to garner interest. Indeed there are multiple businesses recruiting recruiters for the recruitment industry itself.
As an Employer of 45 staff with 4 offices placing 100's of Australians in permanent and contract roles across the Eastern States removing us from the STSOL would be devastating to our business and would lead to retrenchments.
