The Big Issue Vendor Profile: Glenn F.

Glenn F.
Glenn F.

Glenn first began work with The Big Issue seven years ago. Medical issues were causing him much distress when looking for a job. Glenn knew he needed a reliable job that he would be able to do and excel at. Glenn had seen Big Issue vendors on the street, and knew it would be a good fit for him. “I needed to do something active, something that would get me up and out, earning myself a good income.”

Glenn says he has gained so much through being a vendor. “There are many things I love about working at The Big Issue. I really enjoy being able to meet the public and interact with them.”  Glenn became frightful of job interviews after being turned down so many times before. “The Big Issue has provided me with more confidence, it’s something I enjoy doing.” Glenn takes a lot of pride in his work. He is very active when he is selling, often seen juggling or singing along to his radio.

Glenn feels committed to his customers. “I have become a morning person – I know I have an obligation to my customers, I can’t let them down.”

Glenn has built many strong relationships with the people he has met through selling The Big Issue – both other vendors and customers. “I have formed many close relationships with other vendors. We all share a common goal, we are all working together.” Outside of Glenn’s relationships with his fellow vendors, he has also maintained a few strong relationships with the businesses where he sells. “I would like to thank the staff at the Aurora Hotel, Pure Juice, and the Commonwealth Bank. They have been very nice to me over the years. If I need anything they always help out. I have a lot of respect for them.”
