223112 Recruitment Consultant

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

Linkedin is probably the most popular media to advertise for recruiting staff, and as a user of their premium service, Linkedin supplies data on how many candidates apply for each position. and there is generally an over supply, with at least 8 candidates or more applying for each position.
Recruitment agencies should be encouraged to hire and train graduates, and mature age candidates, they have relied upon 457's for far far too long and proof is in the perpetual lack of trainee recruitment adverts on Linkedin or Seek...simple as that. Australia needs to be self sufficiant in recruitment skills. and like many other professions, the ease in appointing 457 workers need to be curtailed, which in turn will ensure Australian candidates will not be left out of opportunities to work, grow and make a positive contribution.
Do you have any supporting material for your submission?
