223112 Recruitment Consultant

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

Lack of local talent. In my 10 years of recruitment and numerous campaigns to develop talent from a grass roots level we had to resort to sponsorship 25 times our of the 30 hires I made. (83%)
Difficult to find suitable skils set. Short-term analysis. Since June, I have ran 4 recruitment campaigns. We made no hires from the local applicants. In that time we have 38% staff attrition
Large talent pools based in US, Europe, Asia. International specialist consultants also bring networks of overseas candidates / talent that benefit the Australian economy. With the technology ages it is important to be able to reach a global audience
Without skilled recruiters, Australian companies will not be able to compete or grow on the international stage
SMEs depend heavily on recruiters as they have no internal HR resources. Our clients report, roles not released to agencies are vacant 6-8 week longer than if an agency is engaged to recruit the position.
The largest talent pool of recruiters sit in the UK. 85% of sponsored hires stay 3 years or more against an industry standard of 9 months
