No

2. Do you consider that occupations need to be added to the Short Term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL)?

No

3. Do you consider that occupations need to be removed from the Medium and Long Term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSSL) or the Short Term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL)?

Yes

What occupations should be removed from the MLTSSL or the STSOL?

612114 Real Estate Agent
612115 Real Estate Representative

Please outline the evidence or data that would support these occupations being removed from the MLTSSL or STSOL.

There are too many unemployed Australia Citizens or Permanent Residents in Australia with Sales experience that could easily transfer their skills into these roles and fulfil these positions without having to employee someone on 457 to fill these positions.

In addition there is evidence of highly qualified individuals being offered PR in Australia and then not being able to secure positions and end up working in basic retail as this is all the work they can find.

Putting Real Estate Agent and similar roles on the occupations lists seems completely contradictory to the objective of the setting stricter rules for immigration to Australia and does not help to address the employment situation for those already unemployed!
