Meet Bianca, Distribution Centre Manager

Bianca joined Vinnies in 2015 as a Store Manager, after a long history of working in the retail sector. Once joining Vinnies, she worked in stores at Fannie Bay, Knuckey St and Coolalinga. In 2020, she joined our distribution centre team.

What do you love about your role?

I love Vinnies and its ethics – we truly do provide a hand up here, not a hand down. It’s working in retail, but its more than that, it’s retail with heart and soul. 


With my current role I love the fact that I can walk in and a whole lot of stock has come into the centre and it’s a big mess. It’s like a puzzle bringing order to it all. I also love being able to bring my creativity to help solve problems for customers. For example, we’re trialling pre-packed packages by size of kids clothing for poor mums who are in a hurry with kids in tow, who simply need a bundle of economically priced clothes.  

I also love spending time with our volunteers, getting to know them and seeing them build friendships through volunteering.


What do you like to do in your spare time?

Building lego with my kids. My other passion is making butterflies and dragonflies from beads. I love collecting beads from old necklaces and things and have jars of them!


If you had a superpower, what would it be?

To cure cancer.  


And just for a little fun, what’s your favourite dessert?

Lemon Meringue Pie
