Gillies was born in Paisley and grew up in Tiverton, Devon. He joined Bath Rugby following a trial in April 1994 and made three first team appearances during the 1995–1996 season. He moved on to join Richmond for the 1997–1998 season with the then Bath coach Andy Robinson feeling that the club's signing of the Argentinian international German Llanes would prevent Gillies from getting the sufficient game time to allow him to fully develop his potential. Gillies moved on to join Llanelli before signing for Warriors in the summer of 2002.

Gillies - who is the leading appearance maker at Worcester in the modern era after beating the previous record of 222 held by Tony Windo - was a key part of the unbeaten National Division One promotion winning team of 2003/04.
