New Centrelink rules will 'not have a great effect' in stopping welfare cheats from applying for jobs they aren't qualified for to keep their benefits, a recruitment agency boss has warned. 

Graham Wynn, boss of Australian and NZ firm Superior People Recruitment, told Daily Mail Australia that the benefits system is 'broken' and said the Labor government's incoming points-based structure will not tackle the issues. 

Under the current Centrelink system, applicants are required to apply for 20 jobs a month to keep their welfare payments. 

That has resulted in employers being bombarded with often ridiculous bogus resumes from welfare cheats trying to rort the system.

Some examples obtained by Daily Mail Australia include a jobseeker who admitted running their own business but confessed 'I need to be on Centrelink'. Another CV went into detail about an applicant's medical history, including a recent hernia. 

However, from July 1, Labor's new Points Based Activation System (PBAS) will be brought in. It won't force people to apply for 20 different positions, and instead will allow JobSeeker recipients to receive payments if they accumulate 100 points per month. 

Mr Wynn, whose company processes hundreds of applications a day, says the new system will have little impact in tackling welfare cheats.
