Our People


Assistant Merchandiser, Menswear

Joe thrives off the variety and progression he is making in his role. Being open minded, organised and confident have certainly helped with his daily challenges, which include coordinating deliveries and planning future ranges.


Margin and Clearance Analyst

The most rewarding aspect of Raj’s career with Next is feeling like she is making a difference. As well as her work being published in the annual reports Raj finds her suggestions are always taken into consideration. She’s also recognised on a regular basis and find this very rewarding, motivating her continuous hard work and desire to go above and beyond to deliver.


Assistant Designer - Menswear Graphics

Starting his career in London at GQ, Karl was looking for somewhere he could develop his love for graphics, image making & illustration – and that place was Next.

His best bits about Next include the freedom to travel, to be super-creative & seeing his designs on the high-street.


Designer – Womenswear

Whether designing, developing or presenting her ideas, Rosie loves the variety of briefs and departments she gets to juggle. She feels like her opinions are heard and valued, and gets a buzz seeing people in her collections.


Software Developer

Fresh out of university, Chika is relishing the opportunities available to him at Next. He loves the freedom he gets to make design decisions with a bunch of very intelligent people.


Senior Online Content Executive

Nine months in and Bijal loves the fast-paced, ever-changing nature of Next, with each day never the same. Bijal enjoys focusing on personal development in her role as Senior Online Content Executive. Although Bijal did let us know the best bit is all the charity bake offs - a great excuse for cake!


Assistant Buyer, Menswear

Kristian’s first ever job was in retail at the age of 16. It inspired him to study for a fashion and retail diploma at college and he soon discovered that our Trainee Buyer Scheme was one of the best around.
