Living and Working in Leicester

Discovering The City

Leicester has lots to offer, with our great sport, rich history, incredible shopping, plenty of entertainment… we can even offer an outer space experience at the award-winning National Space Centre!

We’re perfectly situated at the heart of the UK, with superb transport links by road, rail and even air. It’s part of the reason why the region has become such a rapidly growing hub for creativity, the arts and all sorts of industries.

We also have the perfect combination of vibrant city life and some stunning countryside. In and around the town you’ll discover some of the region’s best shopping at our Highcross Shopping Centre, plus a whole host of bars and restaurants. There’s also our famous Curve theatre as well as all kinds of vibrant festivals, events and exhibitions.

And if all that wasn’t enough, our house and rental prices are well below the UK average too!

As well as being close to the M1 and M60 our Head Office is just 20 minutes from East Midlands Airport. By train we’re just 70 minutes from London and 30 minutes from Nottingham. And if you’re heading North, Manchester can be reached by train in just over an hour.

Upper New Walk

Upper New Walk is our 19 bedroom house for Trainee Buyers and Trainee Merchandisers to rent when they’re initially relocating to begin their Next journey.


We know that the most successful Trainees start with a great first experience. We also know that it can be daunting joining a big brand like Next, moving to a new city, having to find the right area, a place to live as well as meeting new people. With this in mind, we have introduced this home to ease those initial headaches.


This is the best opportunity to settle in quick, have a straightforward commute and meet plenty of similar career minded professionals. All of the bedrooms are en suite, fully furnished with lots of storage space, include the latest fibre optic wifi and a 42 inch TV.


If you are a budding Trainee Buyer or Trainee Merchandiser then this could be your Next home…
