Two friends out for lunch having a good time.

How to congratulate a friend on their new job

When your bestie or a work friend gets that promotion or a new job, you’ll want to do something special to mark the occasion.

As one of their nearest and dearest, you already know how much effort they’ve put into their career and the sacrifices they’ve made.

So you’ll naturally want to congratulate your friend on their new job and recognise their achievement. We show you how with ideas for how to offer your friend new job wishes that express how much you care.

Make their first day special

While your friend is bound to be super excited about the first day in their new role, they may also be feeling a little daunted. Give them something to look forward to by arranging to meet up on their first day.

If they can get away at lunchtime, meeting for a quick bite to eat is a great way to show you care. Knowing that they are just a few hours away from seeing a friendly face will give them the confidence to face the first morning.

Or meet them at the end of the day for cocktails or dinner so they can fill you in on how it’s gone and truly unwind.

Send a personalised gift

If you want to get your friend a new job gift, personalised gift boxes are a great way to go. They’re the perfect way to say “I’m thinking about you,” especially if you and your friend are separated by distance.

The idea is simple: handpick a few little treats that you know your friend will love and could even use on their first day, like a calming essential oil roller or even an enamel pin with a motivational message. Package them up in a gorgeous box and send them on their way! Receiving your heartfelt gift will give your friend a boost as they step out on their first day.

Create a photo collage

Creating a photo collage is a great way to celebrate a friend’s new job. You can include key moments from their career, from clutching their degree through to their latest role. Don’t forget to include those fun times you’ve had on work nights out too!

Assemble those iconic pics in a funky frame and ping the collage over to your friend on their first morning in their new role. It will give them a boost to be reminded of how hard they’ve worked to get there and to know that you’ve got their back too.
