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. We can only do this by staying in the forefront of our customers’ minds – and that’s where Brand and Marketing comes in.

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.

The Brand and Marketing team influences how the TK Maxx and Homesense brands engage customers in exciting and distinctive ways to ensure commercial success both in store and online. That’s where you come in.

Our Brand & Marketing Placement Programme
Your experience starts with a comprehensive induction that combines classroom learning with store visits, team meetings and workshops. With the support of your mentor and buddy, you’ll develop the people skills and technical know-how of the professionals.

You’ll also thrive in a constantly changing environment where decisions happen quickly and everyone works together to make the incredible possible.

Joining a dynamic and collaborative team of 100+ marketers who plan and execute across six different countries, you’ll rotate across two of our Brand & Marketing teams which may include Communications, Corporate Responsibility, Gift Cards or Store Experience.

Through partnerships with world-class creative agencies you’ll develop stand-out communications content that can flex across markets. You’ll analyse data to ensure customers across Europe are targeted through the right channels at the right time. Together with amplifying our corporate responsibility initiatives, growing our gift card business, future-proofing our store experience or keeping a keen eye on social media trends to ensure relevance, you’ll be exposed to the entire marketing mix – and more!

The experience you’ll gain
Ultimately, you’re not only looking to start your career. You’re looking for an unforgettable journey. You want to be part of something huge. Something global. A 12-month Brand & Marketing Placement with TJX Europe is where it can all begin.

By the end of the year, you’ll take away unforgettable experiences – and be ready for an amazing career.

The skills you’ll need
Alongside the requirements listed below, if you have European language skills – particularly German or Polish – that would be great. And if you’ve lived and worked in Europe, even better. In a business like ours, these are great assets to have.

• About to undergo a 12-month Industrial Placement as part of your third year of any sandwich degree course
