223112 Recruitment Consultant

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

I came to Australia in 2001 as a backpacker. I was already an experienced IT recruitment consultant on arrival. I was sponsored as a recruiter on a 457 visa and have resided in Sydney since then. Over the 16 years I have paid over a $million in various taxes. I have fathered 4 beautiful Australian children. I have employed and trained hundreds of Australians. I feel I have contributed to this fine country. I now work in the healthcare sector and have indirectly saved Australian lives. I sponsor an ex drug addicted homeless man who is currently clean and back in gainful employment. Had it not been for 457 visa's for recruiters I would have achieved none of this. Tighten the criteria by all means. Check those references more thoroughly to reduce cases of fraud. But please keep the option for exceptional cases.
