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

The recruitment industry is a vital industry that is growing quickly in the current employment market. Recruitment is believed to be a HR function but the skills that recruiters need to be successful tend to differ from those of a HR professional. As the recruitment industry is growing at such a substantial rate, finding experienced recruitment consultants from Australia proves difficult. One of the most important skills of a recruiter is relationship building which happens over a long period of time which is why it is crucial recruitment consultant gets moved to the MLTSSL.

In our company we are always trying to bring on Australian recruitment consultants however those with experience rarely exist. We have bought on many entry level staff and have trained them up into a recruitment consultant but without the experienced experts we have on hand to do this, this wouldn't be a possibility. We need to continue to build our pool of talent from both Australian candidates and overseas experienced recruiters who can help train and develop the local talent who may not have these skills as of yet.

Not only does the recruitment industry itself create jobs and generate a huge revenue for Australia, it assists other business such as hospitals and rural clinics with their staffing ensuring these business stay afloat and fully staffed where they might usually struggle due to the skills shortages in Australia.
