As part of the nomination requirements, the nominated position needs to be assessed as genuine.
There are many occassions where an occupation can be assessed to be non-genuine, for example:
- the position is for a nominee who is related to the business owner or sponsor
- the position is for a Chef or Restaurant Manager where the business is a fastfood restaurant
- the position nominated is not relevant to the nature of business or industry, for e.g. nominating a Sales Representative for an accounting firm
There are many other circumstances which may give rise to doubts on whether the nominated position is genuine or otherwise.
