TK Maxx Graduate Employer Profile

Employer profile

What makes you a great company to work for?:

It’s a fact. We love filling our stores with unique, one-of-a-kind products. That’s why we’ve applied the same kind of thinking to our graduate programmes, and made them a bit different from most, so we really stand out from the competition. 

 

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.

 

As a global business we are excited about our opportunities for the future and confident in our ability to grow to be a $40 billion company and beyond! TJX Europe is a growth vehicle for The TJX Companies, Inc. and we continue to have enormous opportunities in Europe. In Europe, the Company remains confident in its potential to expand to up to 875 stores overall with T.K. Maxx in the U.K., Ireland, Germany and Poland, and HomeSense in the U.K., as well as the opportunity to expand into other European countries. This means great opportunities for Associates working at TJX Europe and is just one of the many reasons to come and be part of our success. 

 

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.

 

Graduates join TJX because we offer unique career progression prospects and the training and development we offer are unparalleled. We are less structured than many businesses and we are constantly evolving – which allows us to react quickly to new opportunities.

 

Joining us as a graduate is a proper 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 which will enable you to build upon your university skills whilst gaining a valuable insight into our business. You'll become part of a team and make the role your own - paving the way for your career with TK Maxx.
