This is an excellent opportunity for Vinnies Victoria and comes at an exciting time!

With a strong customer focus, you will partner with stakeholders to identify current and anticipated people needs, and will effectively deliver the full recruitment life cycle for staff and volunteer roles.

Positive impact is what we are all about so if you are someone who has lots of initiative and a will to help teams succeed, we can’t wait to hear from you.

 Why work for us?  We offer:

  • Flexible working & great hours. Work life balance is important to us
  • Salary Packaging.  A popular way of providing employees in the community sector with tax benefits over and above their salary. It means the real value of a salary package can be significantly higher than the nominal value
