Our vision is to empower people to take personal ownership of their health.



Next Biosciences’ mission is to innovate and invest in future health possibilities that combine medicine, science and technology.



Our success is driven by our people. It is our responsibility to create a highly regarded, dynamic team that lives by our values.

Our Values & Principles

Next Biosciences Manifesto:


We are passionate about enabling people to invest in their future health – by us investing in science and technology, to give access to the highest quality products and services


We believe in collaboration as opposed to competition. We can achieve so much more together.


We expect our people to invest in themselves. Being curious. Taking up outside hobbies, acquiring new skills. Travelling. Reading. Learning.


We believe in leadership. Taking responsibility. And standing up for what we believe in.


We respect and value diversity. Diverse backgrounds, cultures, beliefs, qualifications – we can all look at the same thing and interpret it differently. No-one is necessarily wrong – just different viewpoints – and by not looking at the entire eco-system from all perspectives, we can miss so much. We love challenging ideas openly and try to understand why someone thinks differently to us. What is the point if we all think the same? Humility and non- judgement is key here.


We hire the best. People with a growth mindset. Positive, anything is possible attitude. People who are smart and take time to think before doing. Mental models of first principles (breaking things down to their basics) and second order thinking (consequences of actions beyond the first outcome).


We believe in constantly evolving. Excellence. Innovation. Always thinking about how we can improve to make a positive difference. We are not scared of failure, which without, we cannot learn and advance. We embrace change and adapt with agility..


We believe in serving humanity. We are all connected. We care. Our people are involved in their communities and love giving back where they can.

If you are as passionate as we are about our Manifesto, then you are the right person to apply to join our amazing team.


Next Biosciences is manager-owned.
