About Vintage Cash Cow

There's an elephant in the boardroom. The unchecked consumption, constant growth and focus on 'buying new' is not an option in tomorrow's market. Companies around the world must stop their reliance on finite resources that can't keep coming out of the ground. Changing consumer behaviour is demanding companies change; less new, fewer short-life items, more reCommerce, more reuse, and more recycling. The cost-of-living crisis is catalysing and accelerating this change; it's simply cheaper to do the right thing.

You'll know that buying and selling old and vintage items isn't easy for most people, so we've set out to change that. Vintage Cash Cow is on a mission to become the leading brand for buying and selling all things vintage, valuable, and occasionally peculiar. By delivering unrivalled convenience and care with our fair, trustworthy and personal service, we believe we can own this space in the UK and overseas.

We aren't doing this entirely alone. We've raised VC investment from Dutch Founders Fund and Airbridge Equity Partners, including from the founders of WeTransfer, Just Eat Benelux and TreatWell. With their support and our unwavering commitment to changing the game for good globally, this role is an exciting opportunity to join a brand primed for lift-off.
