TJX Europe is part of the TJX Companies, Inc. - the world’s leading off-price apparel and home fashions retailer with sales of over $27 billion (Fiscal year ending February 1, 2014). TJX Europe operates TK Maxx, HomeSense and an online retail business in the UK, with over 400 stores (as of July 2014) in the UK, Ireland, Germany and Poland.
What’s so different about Off-Price retail? It’s a lean business model without frills or fancy extras. It involves buying when we find something amazing – much like our customers do – all year round and as close to season as possible to get the best deal. No two deals are ever the same, and Buyers are in the market all the time with an open brief to buy anything – as long as it’ll wow customers. And as we pay our invoices quickly, collect product from vendors, and don’t return or cancel orders, they love doing business with us, which puts us in a great position to negotiate on price.
Why join the people who are TK Maxx and HomeSense?
For the adventure.
Ultimately, you’re not only looking to start your career. You’re looking for an unforgettable journey. You want to be part of something huge. Something global. The Business Technology Graduate Programme with TJX Europe is where it can all begin.
You’ll plug directly into the thrill of life with TJX Companies, Inc. - a global retail phenomenon. We delight, surprise and excite our customers with big name brands at up to 60% off recommended retail prices. Buying from thousands of different designers every day, we never know what we’re going to find. What’s more, we’re growing all the time. It all makes for an incredibly fast-paced business that’s every bit as exciting for us as it is for our customers.
This is not like any other trainee programme. Our Business Technology Graduate Programme is based in IT - the fuel behind our business, which enables us to deliver outstanding value for customers and helps us continue to grow. But you won’t just sit behind a monitor. Partnering with people from across the business as a champion of IT, you’ll be a big part of the impact we make.
Over three years, you’ll experience work in each of our three core areas: Operations, which keeps our business running; Business Partnering & Analysis, which designs tools and processes; Project Delivery, which turns innovative ideas into reality. Along the way, you’ll get lots of training both on and off the job, as well as opportunities to get recognised qualifications like ITIL or Six Sigma. In other words, you’ll get all the knowledge and experience you need to be a future leader.
You don’t need to have a particular degree. What we’re looking for is creative thinking, strong focus, powerful drive and the ability to adapt to any change. A talent for connecting and collaborating with all kinds of people is also really important.
