Conor Hickey – General Manager, Collingwood Children’s Farm

COVID was a horrific time. We had to close and we had to stand staff down.

Some of our staff didn’t qualify for JobKeeper. It was precarious, I guess, you know, we didn’t know when we would reopen. Then we went to the Jobs Victoria online hub.

We were able to put in everything that we wanted and I think it was probably the best and easiest way to employ people.
