What occupations should be added to the Medium and Long-term Strategic Skills List (MLTSSL)?

Please also include occupations that you propose should be moved from the Short-term Skilled Occupation List (STSOL) to the MLTSSL.

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

The biotechnology, medical technology and pharmaceutical industry needs access to global talent across a number of disciplines. The highly advanced and technical nature of the work requires experience and specific skill sets, the combinations of which are internationally sought after. There is intense competition for sector specific manufacturing, design, technicians and managers in biotech, medtech and pharma. An MLTSSL commitment makes Australia a more competitive destination for these internationally skilled and talented individuals. A pathway to permanent residence is a major factor in the decision making when Australia is competing with other geographies for access to talent
