223112 Recruitment Consultant

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

I run a recruitment business, based in Sydney but servicing Australia and APAC.

We have tried to recruit Australians time and again, but we simply can't find locals who want to do a recruitment consultant role.

The role is heavily sales focused, and quite frankly, locals can find easier roles.

We have tried advertising, using recruitment consultants to find us people, with no joy.

We recruit into the ever-expanding technology and digital media industry, finding Australian and international start-up companies the highly qualified talent they need to grow their businesses. This is a part of the market which will become increasingly important as Australia moves away from reliance on primary industries to a service / technology focused economy.

In order to recruit these people, I need people who know that space. And I simply can't find Australians who know the space.

Stopping sponsorship in this space will not only limit my business, once set up by an Australian, but also the wider technology market which will ultimately hold Australia's growth back.
