Description

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul operates seven thrift stores and one outlet store in the Cincinnati area, providing a source of hope for those who cannot purchase basic necessities or need to shop on a budget. Thrift Store and Donation Center proceeds support the Society’s direct service programs like our Choice Food Pantry, Charitable Pharmacy and homelessness prevention program. In this position, you will learn about the different facets of store operations, providing support to our stores’ retail managers during routine store visits, learning about what it takes to provide each store with the tools and processes they need to run efficiently; gain skills around navigating interpersonal dynamics and learn different management styles; provide support to store employees as needed, including having direct interactions with customers and neighbors in need in the store voucher redemption process. This position will also include hands-on work assisting with facilities management of our 12 building facilities, responding to various needs from small projects like correcting a toilet leak and completing oil change to big projects like repairing an industrial compacter. A basic knowledge of tools, a desire and confidence to learn more skills, and the comfort level and ability to lift heavy items would be essential.

VVC members serve full-time in a unique work placement with the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. They live together in a house provided by the program, in the West End neighborhood of Cincinnati, blocks from SVDP’s Outreach Center. One hundred percent of VVC members finish the program reporting personal, professional and spiritual growth.
