How does becoming one of the brains behind a unique off-price business model sound?

Who Is TJX Europe?

If you haven’t heard of us, you’ve might well have shopped in one of our TK Maxx or Homesense stores. We’re part of the world’s leading off-price apparel and home fashions retailer – TJX Companies, Inc. We have an annual global turnover of over $39bn* and our business is growing.

Finance touches every part of our business. Financial strength helps us to be agile, adaptable and ultimately, to grow the business. That’s where you come in.

Our Finance Placement Programme

Finance at TJX Europe is dynamic, strategic, and forward-looking. You’ll be given real responsibility – fast. You’ll enjoy great exposure to different ways of working across all areas of the business, whilst working with diverse, talented range of people.

Working in one of our core Finance areas, you’ll gain in-depth professional knowledge of that particular area, but also an appreciation of our wider business. You’ll quickly develop an understanding of how finance adds value to everything we do, and grow essential skills in financial reporting, analysis, and accountancy techniques.

The Experience You’ll Gain

Ultimately, if you’re looking for an unforgettable journey. Want to be part of something huge. Something global. A 12-month Finance placement with TJX Europe is where it can all begin.

On this placement you’ll get lots of training on and off the job, with plenty of opportunities to put your new abilities to the test. If you’re looking for a chance to make a real difference look no further. You even could earn yourself a place on our European Graduate Programme.

Skills You’ll Need

  • Studying towards a degree in any discipline – but with a genuine interest in finance
  • Ready to undergo a 12-month Industrial Placement (as part of your third year)
  • Naturally curious, with a talent for connecting with people
  • Good communication skills are important, as challenging views and influencing decisions will be a big part of your role

If you have European language skills – particularly German or Polish – that’s a real plus.  And if you’ve lived and worked in mainland Europe, even better. In a business like ours, the above assets are great to have!
