Conveniently located just 3 miles from the City Centre, near junctions 21 and 21A of the Motorway, our new site in Leicester's Radar Road sets the stage for your journey with NEXT Online.

Committed to your team's growth, you set objectives, offer constructive feedback and foster success all while building strong relationships to cultivate a positive and dynamic work environment that enhances service delivery.

What we’re looking for:

We are looking for someone who is as passionate about people management and customer service as we are. You will have previous management experience and ideally you will have a strong understanding of working within a customer service and/or contact centre environment.

You will be an excellent communicator both verbally and written, with an ability to communicate clearly and coherently with all levels and  be able to plan and manage your tasks in order to meet deadlines and make decisions confidently even when facing changing priorities.
