What difference has JobKeeper made to the sector? Have your say
16 March 2021 at 8:00 am

Pro Bono News is surveying the sector to see what impact the end of JobKeeper will have. Have your say and take part in our reader poll now. 

Pro Bono News wants to hear from you about your experience with JobKeeper.

Last June, Pro Bono News did a reader poll to get a sense of how many organisations were receiving JobKeeper.

Nearly 60 per cent of respondents said their organisations were receiving JobKeeper support. As many as 15 per cent said they would need to retrench staff when JobKeeper came to an end, which at the time was expected to take place in September. 

One respondent said: “JobKeeper has enabled us to retain staff, whose positions otherwise would have unfortunately been made redundant. We would have lost about 25 per cent of our staff.”

Another said: “We, fortunately, entered COVID-19 debt-free and with a substantial asset base, we will exit the JobKeeper period with reduced operations, an uncertain recovery and seeking a bank facility.”

With JobKeeper now set to finish at the end of this month, we want to see what’s changed and build a picture of where the sector is at.

Is your organisation still receiving JobKeeper? Will you have to retrench staff when it ends? Or are you confident about the financial resilience of your organisation? 

Add your voice to the conversation.

The survey will only take three minutes to complete. Any personal information that could identify you will be removed or changed before results are made public.

    I was made redundant twice in 2020. Once, 7 months into a 12 month contract after attracting three new childcare services to the charity organisation; and later 3 months into a permanent role after attracting one new childcare service to another charity organisation. Both took the opportunity presented by Covid to replace elements of my roles with lower paid staff
