Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.Margaret Mead
As Margaret Mead highlighted, it all starts with people, and here at World’s Biggest Garage Sale (WBGS) people are the beating heart of our organisation, powering the change we all want to see.
Every single one of our team members brings a unique piece of themselves to the WBGS family, a special ingredient, and when all put together we create the big red heart that is World’s Biggest Garage Sale, bringing positive impact to local communities and the world.
So we only thought it fitting that we introduced some of the incredible faces that make up our amazing team. Without further ado, please meet Sara McIntyre and Domonic Dore.
OUR PEOPLE: Sara McIntyre
Sara is our amazing finance coordinator, who came to work with us after giving us some goods through our dormant goods drive-through. Sara was so impressed with our business, she immediately offered to volunteer with us in any way she could. Over time Sara generously helped us with many projects, in particular finances, and looking to get back into the workforce she is now onboard as our Finance and HR coordinator (or as we like to call her – the Finance Queen). With such a caring, fun-loving nature and strong work ethic, we are so grateful to have Sara as a permanent member of the team!
What are your favourite moments working at the WBGS?
“My favourite moments all involve being on a team who really cares. It’s an incredible environment to be a part of!”Sara McIntyre
OUR PEOPLE: Domonic DORE
Dom started with us in May 2020 as one of our first ever interns in our Circular Economy Precinct. Dom came to us via internship through the Gold Coast Employment Support Service (GCESS) after struggling to find employment for 3 years. During his 12 weeks internship we discovered what a bright and capable hard worker he was and in September 2020, Dom came onboard as a permanent part-time employee. Having proven his brilliant skills in repair and resource recovery, particularly in our chair zone, he is now known as the CHAIRMAN, breathing new life into old or damaged chairs!
What is your favourite part about working at WBGS?
“World’s Biggest Garage sale creates a sense of belonging, the people are so welcoming and they all have the hardest work ethic. This inspires me daily to put in the effort to be a better person at both work and home”Dom Dore
