About the joy they bring when something arrives that has been planned, designed, selected, crafted, packed and delivered with care.

Employee reviews

Not On The High Street's employees have anonymously had their say in what they think of the company

NOTHS is the friendliest and most caring company I have worked for. My team is so supportive and everyone across the business is wonderful and passionate about our purpose.

I never have to worry about missing a parents evening, or a school concert, or a dentist appointment - I have the freedom to manage my workload around those types of things, which ultimately makes life that bit less stressful

I love working for NOTHS! There is something really unique about the culture here - It's a place where you can be who you are! Most importantly, the people here are great, which is what makes NOTHS what it is.

NOTHS is a great place to work where flexibility is at the heart of everything the company does and I am very proud to be apart of such an amazing organization.

This is a very nice team to work with.

The company is supportive of the things that could affect my work-life balance and seem to focus on allowing me to find this balance, I feel I am supported with my family life etc

I also feel valued within the business and that I contribute something to the goals of the business, I feel like I am given the right amount of responsibility to stretch me so that I am not bored in my role

It's the best place I have worked!

Fun and friendly environment
