The best kept secret in business

The best kept secret in business

This is retail, but not as you know it. Join the TJX graduate programme
 
You’ve probably heard of the TJX brands, TK Maxx and HomeSense, but what you might not know is that its part of the world’s leading off-price apparel and home fashions retailer. TJX is something of a secret global retail force, with 3,600 stores, 216,000 associates, an annual global turnover of over $30.9billion, plus there’s confidence that the figure will grow to more than $40billion pretty soon. What’s more, the brand has no intention of stopping there either, which means extraordinary opportunities for you to join and shape the company.
 
TJX sees graduates as future business leaders, so the career progression prospects and the training and development it offers are unparalleled. The business is less structured than many others too, which allows TJX to react quickly to new opportunities. 
 
Joining TJX as a graduate is a real job with real responsibilities. This will be your opportunity to learn a variety of new, practical skills and make a real impact within your department. It’s an eye-opening experience that will enable you to build upon your university skills while gaining a valuable insight into the business. You’ll become part of a team and make the role your own – paving the way for your career with TJX Europe and beyond.
 
Merchandising
The merchandising and buying European graduate and placement programmes are just like the rest of the business – unconventional and full of ridiculous possibilities. Stepping into
TJX’s fast-moving, flexible world, you’ll quickly discover why this area of the business is so vital in its success, how the graduate relationship shapes its product strategy and get a real insight into how your work can impact results.
 
Finance
As with everything else TJX, finance here is not what you’d expect, it’s so much more. Its success relies on its ability to adapt to the market, act with agility and grasp new opportunities. All while ensuring the business runs smoothly day after day. As you’ll realise on the graduate or placement programme, to achieve this TJX needs financial strength and financial flexibility.
 
Loss prevention
If you were thinking that loss prevention must be the same at TJX as elsewhere, you’d be wrong. As with everything else the company does, it’s unconventional. Across two streams – security and loss management and crime and analytics management – it’s less about security and more about managing change to make TJX as efficient as possible. That could involve designing solutions to deter crime, making sure stores hit their sales targets or strategically solving problems across the supply chain. Whichever stream you follow, across two years you’ll get a unique insight into how its off-price model works. In fact, you’ll be critical in making it all work.
 
Business technology
The business technology European graduate programme might be based within the IT sector but, as IT underpins all business activities, you’ll find yourself working with everyone in the industry, from merchandising and buying, to finance, HR and the people in the stores. TJX’s IT division comprises three core areas, and you’ll learn about every one of them: plan, build and run.
