Experienced members - need your advise.

My wife is a primary applicant and the below work experiance we are planning to mention in EE profile.

Claiming 6+ years of experience (all in 1 company):
  1. HR Administrator - Jan 2011 (NOC 1223) - Human resources and recruitment officers
  2. HR Office - July 2012 (NOC 1223) - Human resources and recruitment officers
  3. Regional L&D Manager - Jan 2016 (NOC 0112) - Human resources managers
  4. Group L&D Manager - July 2017 current (NOC 0112) - Human resources managers
So my question is:
  • Is it ok if we choose her current NOC as a primary (0112)?
  • If so, the experience in current NOC is only 2+ years but we are claiming 6+ years (which is based on entire work experience). Confused!
Surly the reference letter will make a distinction between the different duties/responsibilities performed.

Will appreciate if someone can confirm that we are OK here.
Many thanks!

While filling the EE profile, where does it ask for Primary NOC? If I want to put my last job as primary NOC(not the current one) , how would I do that?

I have 2 NOC 2171 and 1114. I want to apply at a provincial program with NOC 1114, is it OK to put NOC 2171 as primary occupation in express entry?
