What might I be doing? There are lots of different opportunities available in our Vinnies Shops.

Perhaps you prefer a more physical role of transporting and sorting donations. Maybe you love to connect with people and would like to work on the register and shop floor. These are only a few examples of what we can offer and we are happy to chat about these further!
How do I apply? Please use the form below to apply and be a part of something both exciting and meaningful! A staff member will be in touch over the next few days to arrange a meet & greet with you

St Vincent de Paul Society has over 110 retail shops across Victoria known as “Vinnies”, selling new and pre-loved fashion and homewares. The beauty of our Vinnies Shops is that you never know what unique and special treasures you might find! Over 12 million items were sold within our retail shops last year, which saved 12 million items from going to landfill!
The proceeds from items sold in our Shops go directly into our communities to help support some of the most vulnerable people that may be experiencing hardship and loneliness.
Across 9 Soup Vans we were able to provide over 88 thousand meals to people that would have potentially gone hungry.
40,000 calls for welfare assistance were answered last year in our Call Centre and assistance was given in the form of material goods, food vouchers and of course a compassionate ear.
Our 5 Education Programs offered reading, companionship, and homework help to 977 students who attended the programs in 2019.
None of this would be possible without our Vinnies Shops.
