According to XML Schema definition this is not valid.
You are using a localComplexType and not a topLevelComplexType definition.

And here the use of attribute is "prohibited", see excerpt of XML Schema
below:

 <xs:complexType name="localComplexType">
  <xs:complexContent>
   <xs:restriction base="xs:complexType">
    <xs:sequence>
     <xs:element ref="xs:annotation" minOccurs="0"/>
     <xs:group ref="xs:complexTypeModel"/>
    </xs:sequence>
    <xs:attribute name="name" use="prohibited"/>
    <xs:attribute name="abstract" use="prohibited"/>
    <xs:attribute name="final" use="prohibited"/>
    <xs:attribute name="block" use="prohibited"/>
   </xs:restriction>
  </xs:complexContent>
 </xs:complexType>

You are trying to give a local complexType definition a name, which makes no
sense.
Names of global types, elements and attributes are in conjunction with the
targetNamespace of a schema identifiers, so that these definitions can be
used and referenced from other places within either the current or another
importing schema file.

Local types, elements and attributes cannot be referenced and therefore the
name attribute would be useless.

Peter

I changed the line:
  <xs:complexType>
to
  <xs:complexType name="Personnel Type">

According to XMLSchema definition should be valid.
