Vibrant & Engaging Team!

The St Vincent de Paul Society makes a significant difference to thousands of people’s lives every single day! Across Victoria, its wide reaching network of over 12,000 volunteers provide practical welfare support, advocacy and friendship for the most vulnerable members of our community. We are committed to hiring staff who possess a genuine desire to make a difference to the lives of others and we currently have a brand new, exciting opportunity to join our fantastic Retail Team!

The role

Reporting to the Merchandising Manager, the Business Development Manager will be responsible for leading the development of innovative new ways of raising revenue outside of the traditional shop retail model. A key project for attention in the first twelve months will be to develop a plan to increase non-shop revenue through online activities, partnerships, sale of product, grants, recycling and various other forms. This is a brand new role in the Society and there is huge scope for the impact you can make in the organisation!


As an experienced Business Development Manager you will be passionate for new business sales, have excellent stakeholder management skills and are able to build long lasting, meaningful relationships across diverse networks. You will be an exceptional communicator who can positively influence people with your dynamic and proactive attitude. Identifying areas of revenue growth is second nature to you and are always full of new ideas. You are strategic in your thought processes and planning but are not afraid to be unconventional in your way of thinking. This is what makes your way of working inspirational to others!

Positive impact is what we are all about so if you are someone who has initiative in abundance and a strong desire to help people succeed, then we would love you to apply.
