Featured Review

Current Employee - Internal Communications Coordinator

I have been working at next full-time for less than a year

Pros

The Head Office site is absolutely stunning (even when it's raining) and the people are so welcoming, friendly and willing to help! The flexible working approach keeps me motivated and means that I... can manage my work-life balance better. The work and day to day responsibilities keep me motivated and help me work towards becoming a better working professional. My manager is so supportive as are the wider team and the regular feedback and approach to learning in the workplace means that everyday I feel like I am developing into a better working professional. There is a very collaborative and progressive culture at Next and it's so refreshing to be in such a motivating environment. The whole experience from being offered my job to being 1 month in, has certainly lived up to what I had expected if not offered me so much more!

Cons

I can't think of anything that I could fault about working for Next HQ, no downsides to working here at all! It would've been nice to have the opportunity to visit HQ as part of the recruitment... process but understand that due to COVID restrictions in place- this was not possible and perhaps in normal times, this opportunity would've been there.
