Sydney-based Anthony Cohen spent a lifetime in the airline and hospitality industries. With 16+ years clocked up working for Qantas, Ant had just started a contract with The City Tattersall’s Club when COVID-19 changed the world. Within a few weeks he and his partner, an orchestral musician, lost their jobs and their futures. But, rather than letting the COVID-19 crisis swallow them, it inspired Anthony to take action.
“We set up Project Displaced to help our community through this terrible and very sudden crisis,” explains Anthony. “After both my partner and I lost our jobs, I couldn’t just sit there and do nothing, so put a call out on LinkedIn to see if there were any roles available.”
No-one is alone. Not if they are prepared to reach out for help.
Our mission is to help job seekers across Australia through this crisis, by providing them with access to the tools, resources and skilled professional advice they need to move from displaced to placed.
We aim to arm job seekers with support, a sense of optimism, and the self-confidence they need to seek out new opportunities so that they can better cope with the current environment and thrive in the future.
We are Australia’s first pop-up job crisis service that recognises the enormity that COVID-19 is having on our careers, our lives, our communities, and our families.
We are run by qualified professionals that all volunteer their time and expertise in order to pay it forward, and we offer all our services free of charge to job seekers in need.
