What occupations should be added to the Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL)?

Please also include occupations that you propose should be moved from the Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL) to the MLTSSL.

223112 Recruitment Consultant

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

Removing recruitment consultant from the MLTSSL to STSOL or worse completely removing the category would significantly impact the industry that thrives on a multi cultural understanding of the market place across the employment spectrum.

These skills are not taught in a classroom or assessed by exams, but rather learnt and finessed through life experience and dedication to an ever changing and demanding playing field.

The tireless work and relationships built would inevitably be lost should the individuals not be offered the opportunity of longevity in their stay in Australia ultimately leading to the possibility of permanent residency.

The removal or short term allowance would create a constant halt and slow down in the market for both employers and the candidates being assisted by the recruitment agencies, as new consultants would have to be brought in and upskilled to ultimately be replaced. The benefit is non existent for any party involved.
