    Not actually too sure about Next, but in general, proof to work documentation (such as NI number (P45, P60, wage slip or NI card should suffice), passport and visa (if applicable). Possibly also a passport photo for security records.

    As far as the role goes, the manager inducting you should advise of the position you will be doing. As far as the content of the induction goes, chances are you'll spend the day watching some videos (customer service, profit protection, etc), basic Health and Safety and a tour of the store.

    You should wear something smart, but not overly so. Dress trousers and shoes with a shirt (no tie), perhaps?

    Think that covers everything

    hey, I work at next, and had my induction this time last year. I think you can wear pretty much what ever you want to the induction. Alls it's going to involve is you and a handful of other people having to watch the relevant safety videos, and i think a video on how to mark down stock and wrap on sale day. If you are put on the tills, you won't be operating the till itself, it will just be "wrapping" for the cashier, so basically bagging everything up.

    not entirely sure what documentation you should take! if i remember rightly it's your national insurance number and passport? but don't bank on me for that! just take those with you, and if it turns out that you need some other form of id, they will allow you to bring this with you on your first shift, or maybe pop it in to them before your first shift.

    no worries though, you'll only be there for an hour.
