You choose what hits the shelves this season. Negotiate, design and innovate with this Retail giant.
From identifying key colours, trends and fabrics to negotiating the best possible price from suppliers, the role of a Trainee Buyer is ever changing and there’s a lot to consider.
However, our amazing training makes these roles among the most sought-after in the industry.
This is a role that’s as creative as it is commercial, so you’ll need a mind as sharp as your dress sense. You’ll also need to live and breathe fashion. A fashion related degree isn’t a must, but it does help.
It’s a really hands-on entry into the Retail industry but still offers a lot of support and guidance.
One of the UK's best-loved Retail brands, a mainstay on the FTSE 100 and a leading Retail employer. It's got to be Next.
Whether it’s through our 500-plus retail stores, our pioneering Directory business or our 200 international stores, customers all over the world are choosing, buying and loving everything we do – from our clothing ranges and stunning homeware collections to exclusive brands like Lipsy.
Our brand is associated with exciting products, beautiful design and exceptional quality. We bring this into our office space - it's a beautiful place to work and design new ideas and products.
We probably offer the best career training in Retail: 70% of our managers within the Product area of Head Office started as trainees. You could be next.
We're a sociable bunch, with trainees regularly heading to bowling, Nando's, BBQs and other excuses to get out and explore together.
Our HQ has a house just down the road for all new trainees to stay while they arrange accommodation and find their feet in Leicester.
If you don't want to leave the office to socialise, that's fine too: we have our own coffee and smoothie bars onsite, so there's always an excuse to go for a catch-up.
We believe in having an open office. If you have a query with another department, just get on up and walk over for a chat - we're all working together, there are no closed doors.
It’s going to be really fast paced - but I promise you that you really will enjoy it.
It’s a great experience... It’s such a fantastic opportunity to get into the workplace.
Our customers have three ways to shop: in our stores, through our famous printed Directory and also online, which is now our most profitable channel. We deliver to over 70 counties worldwide and have warehouses throughout Europe.
We are passionate about creating exciting, beautifully designed and excellent quality clothing and homeware, presented in collections that reflect the aspirations and means of our customers.
Joining us as a Trainee or on a Placement, you will be having an impact on the company from your very first day. Your opinions might influence how our website develops, or which products make it onto the shelves for the Christmas rush.
We're passionate about the product and enjoy making a difference every day. If this sounds like something you want to be a part of, apply today.
