223112 Recruitment Consultant

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

Denovo Consulting Group Pty Ltd are an Australian owned company that has been established since 2011 with offices currently in Sydney, two in Melbourne, Australia and one in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
We employ 43 staff in Australia and globally employ 46 staff members.
Denovo specializes in Sales, Marketing and Executive recruitment with a proven track record in finding the right candidate for our clients.
In the most recent financial year, our annual turnover was $3.76m; an increase of 2.4% from the previous financial year.
The continual growth of our business has driven the need to employ a skilled and experienced employees for the business to meet its client demands and maintain operational efficiency. A contributing factor to our successful growth is our ability to recruit from a diverse pool of skilled 457 workers under the 223112 Recruitment Consultant occupation list.
Naturally, the recruitment industry has a high employee turnover industry with a current employment level of 59,000 across Australia (http://joboutlook.gov.au/Occupation.aspx?search=Career&code=2231).
Although we always make a conscious effort to recruit locally, finding local skilled talent can sometimes be a challenge and therefore by removing the Recruitment Consultants from STSOL entirely, the shortage of skilled Recruitment Consultants will have a direct and detrimental impact to our diverse company. We will be under-resourced, experience loss in operational efficiency, financial loss and decline. None of our positions have ever been created for migration purposes. Subsequently, this will then have a knock on effect to our clients and their industries.
Denovo are forecasting a strong outlook for 2018 and its clients - further supported by 'positive trading ccombined with improved employer confidence' means that the market is looking strong for 2018 (http://www.onrec.com) - however this cannot be possible if the 223112 is removed from the list.
