Technology drives what we do. Plain and simple.
It means we develop nearly all our websites and systems
It means we can sell £40m in goods in the first four hours of our Boxing Day sale.
It means we can send out 440,000 items to customers every single day.
It’s helped make us the UK’s most profitable retailer.
So we can invest in the latest tech and the greatest people.
You might be one of them.
Some 500 IT professionals design, develop and support all our IT systems in-house. That’s unusual for a retailer. And it means you could work on all sorts of technology – the kind that supports us, gives us the edge on the high street and online, and drives us in the UK and over 70 countries around the world. Whatever role you take on, in areas ranging from eCommerce to Distribution, you can be sure of new technologies and fresh projects throughout your career.
The majority of our roles are based at our newly-refurbished Head Office which is perfectly placed in Leicester – so London and Birmingham are within easy reach. And there are opportunities at our Distribution operation in Doncaster too. Whichever location you’re based in, you’ll find a great quality of life with house and rental prices comfortably below the UK average. Plus, local schools that score top marks. All this, and more, is why Next can provide you with everything to keep developing – in work and outside it.
We have opportunities you won’t find anywhere outside our growing team. Why? Because we’ve recruited over 60% of managers from our own ranks and always have room for more.
Development is on top of the usual benefits, like bonuses, discount, pension and shares scheme. There’s also free parking and travel passes, subsidised restaurants and cafés, plus juice bars, cycle bays, a staff shop, a state-of-the-art nursery, a Starbucks machine and more.
