Company: TJX Companies, Inc.

TJX Companies, Inc. – the world’s leading off-price fashion and homeware retailer – has a unique Off-Price Retailing Model, which means our savvy shoppers get top fashion & homeware brands for up to 60% less. The Buyers and Buying Managers at TJX Europe (TK Maxx and HomeSense) travel the world 40 weeks a year, which means they need dedicated administration support from a separate Buying Operations function.

 

Joining our Buying Operations function in Watford, you’ll join around 80 associates working in the UK, Germany, Italy, France and Denmark who provide dedicated Administrative support to the Buying teams.

 

This advertisement is to register your interest in future Buying Manager Administrator positions, as we currently do not have any live requirements.

As Buying Manager Administrator you’ll provide dedicated support to a team of Buying Managers. In many ways the Buying Manager Administrator role is similar to that of a PA or Secretary.

 

You will be responsible for managing the Buying Managers’ schedules, making travel arrangements, managing the department’s calendar and coordinating information for internal and external meetings, store/market visits, vendor meetings, appraisals, strategy meetings and presentations. It doesn’t stop there. Our Buying Managers will also turn to you to run their daily reports so that they can analyse their business area. There will be even times when you will get to analyse the data.

 

Key Skills, Knowledge & Experience

  • Self-starter with the ability to prioritise and manage a high volume of priorities in a fast paced and changeable environment
  • Strong administrative and organisational skills, attention to detail and an ability to deliver against tight deadlines;
  • For our BMAs, we tend to look for prior experience as a Personal Assistant, Secretary or Team Administrator;
  • Excellent communication skills (verbal and written) are key, as are strong interpersonal skills, where you can build relationships with people on all levels;
  • Systems skills (Microsoft Office packages, particularly Excel)

 

 

TJX Companies Inc. has more than 3,200 stores in six countries and approximately 191,000 Associates. We are proud that we can offer progressive career possibilities, competitive salaries and exciting opportunities. We are committed to support your goals so you can help us achieve ours.
