Who is TJX Europe?

You might not have heard of TJX Europe, but you’ve probably heard of our brands – TK Maxx and Homesense. We’re part of the world’s leading off-price apparel and home fashions retailer – TJX Companies, Inc. Last year, our annual revenue was over $33 billion
*. But we don’t want to stop there. We’re confident that we can continue to grow and become a $40 billion plus company. Information Technology give us the platform on which we successfully run our business, so it’s vital to our future success.


Off-Price – the key to our success

What keeps our customers coming back time and time again? The fact that we offer designer labels, top brands and unique gems for less. Our ever-changing, eclectic treasure hunt of thousands of the world’s best and most exciting fashion and homeware brands mean our customers can find their unique style for less.


This is down to our Off-Price business model, which is at the heart of everything we do. Our opportunistic buyers are on the hunt throughout the year, buying merchandise from thousands of vendors around the world. It’s about thinking fast, being creative and making great deals.


This means that no two deliveries are ever the same. And neither are any two days. It’s an unconventional approach which is echoed throughout all areas of TJX Europe.

IT underpins all our business activities, fuels our growth and provides the technological solutions that enable us to deliver outstanding value to our customers.


As a graduate on our Technical Programme in IT, you’ll gain real hands-on technical experience and a breadth and depth of understanding of our entire business.


Responsibility from the start

You’ll start with a comprehensive 3 month induction, where you’ll experience how our operations, infrastructure and security teams ensure the smooth running of our business. You will gain hands-on experience in systems and store support, networks, the incident management service desk, security and compliance.


Then you will continue to develop in your technical role through a series of workshops, training programmes and a variety of projects for the remaining 9 months. Within your domain area or technical specialism, you’ll get to experience things like future design, development and technology across our plan, build and run functions.  


What does my career path look like?

To us, you become a valuable member of the team from the day you start. We move people quickly, but in a supportive way. Not only are you empowered to make decisions from the outset, you will drive your development in our exciting, fast-paced business.


During your 1 year programme you will have developed and built your skills, technical expertise and leadership potential enabling you to seek out your next opportunity and embark on a career path right for you.


The Skills You’ll Need

  • A related technical degree (e.g. computer Science, software systems, computer systems engineering, computer engineering) and knowledge of key technical skills.
  • If you haven’t studied a technical degree, you’ll need to demonstrate knowledge or experience of key programming languages (including Java, Oracle, C / C#, Cognos, SQL, Excel, Hybris or BI / EDW).
  • If you have both of the above, then you’ll be at a distinct advantage.
  • Passion for how technology drives business improvements and enhances customer experience
  • Curiosity for identifying better ways of doing things and a collaborative mind-set which challenges the status quo.
