The defender debuted in 2009, playing six games for Geelong and winning their best and fairest award but failed to play a match the next year. He added just two more games in 2011, and despite interest in a trade from Hawthorn he was retained by the Cats. After five more games in a VFL premiership in 2012 he was delisted.
Gillies then joined Melbourne on a one delisted free agent year contract after training with them during the off-season, but only played two senior games in his career with the Demons.
He debuted in the first game of the season, but after two matches as a key defender in which the Demons had an average losing margin of 113.5 points he was dropped and never returned. Despite a late conversion to playing as a forward for the Casey Demons Gillies was delisted at the conclusion of his first year with the club.
