Dear Sir/Madame,

I am sending you an email to address my concerns with regards to the proposed changes for the 457 visa’s. I manage a team of 7 recruitment consultants and am looking to grow the team to 20 by 2020.

Most of the qualified recruitment staff in my team is working on a 457 visa. We place approximately 450 Technology specialists per year in Australian start-ups, fintechs, banks, other commercial enterprises & not for profit organisations.

If the proposed changes will take place we will struggle to attract the quantity & quality of staff needed to facilitate the growth of Sirius Technology. This will consequently negatively impact the growth of our Australian clients and the Australian GDP.

Please do not take away the 457 visa’s for recruitment consultants.

Kind regards,

Koenraad Moltmaker
Manager - Sirius Technology
