The spreadsheet in the link provides the Deputy with the requested breakdown of the number of employment permits issued by my Department by job classification for the years 2014 - 2017.

The jobs classifications system used in the spreadsheet is organised using the Standard Occupational Classification system (SOC 2010), a system which classifies workers into occupational categories for the purpose of collecting, calculating, or disseminating data.

My Department has issued employment permits for 265 separate occupations during this timeframe.
