Our Values & Principles

Next Biosciences Manifesto:

  1. 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.
  1. We aim to exceed our customers’ expectations and WOW them with an incredible personalized experience.
  1. 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).

  1. We expect our people to invest in themselves. Being curious. Taking up outside hobbies, acquiring new skills. Travelling. Reading. Learning.
  1. We believe in leadership. Taking responsibility. And standing up for what we believe in.
  1. We believe in transparency and open communication, so that we can empower each other to understand, learn, grow and make informed decisions.
  1. 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.
  1. 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.
  1. We believe in collaboration as opposed to competition. We can achieve so much more together.
  1. We believe in making the world a better place and 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.
