Going behind the scenes at Leicester City Football Club

The tour of King Power stadium gave the participants an real insight to the club. Starting at the players’ entrance, used by the squad on matchdays, before heading to the media suite where they had an opportunity to take photos.

They continued the tour down to the tunnel, visiting the away changing rooms before they made their way into the home changing rooms, showers and cryotherapy rooms. Participants then had the opportunity to walk pitch side and visit the home dugout.

This eye opening tour finished with a Q & A session and the merchandise manager gave career insights for the Foxes fan shop.

GREAT goes behind the scenes at Next

The GREAT team and some of its participants were invited along to spend the day with Next to see how their organisation works. We started the day with an insightful presentation on how Next functions, followed by some fun activities that let us see what Next looks for when recruiting potential employees. We ended the day with a tour around the entire Next campus, and we were all amazed at its size! There’s over 3,000 members of staff at Next’s Head Office, all working in a broad range of industries like finance, marketing, IT and design.

The aim of visiting Next was to help our participants make informed choices about the different departments they could aspire to work in. We believe this is a crucial step in their journey, and are looking forward to our next behind the scenes tour!
