223112 Recruitment Consultant

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

I am originally from the UK. I previously benefited from passing through the 457 visa program and am now an Australian citizen.

I am also the founder of Spark Recruitment. We help Australians to find work. It is my view that Recruitment consultants play a vital role in the economy. With the recruitment industry employers would struggle to achieve their onshore talent goals.

Recruitment is a profession. It takes significant skills and investment to become good at it and it is a global industry.

It is my view that the 457 visa should remain open as there is a lack of recruitment talent on-shore. This has been the case since I have been in Australia, which is from 1999
