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. We’ve an annual global turnover of over $35bn* and our business just keeps on growing.
The more we grow, the more important Logistics becomes, and that’s why the Logistics Graduate Programme at TJX Europe is pretty special.
Responsibility from the start
You’ll start with a comprehensive induction and then continue to develop yourself through a series of workshops and training programmes. All of which will enable you to take on responsibility quickly.
During your first three years, you’ll work in two out of the following four areas:
Our Inbound and Outbound Operations are responsible for delivering efficient and simplified flow into processing centres and out to stores; leveraging third-party suppliers to get goods through customs and comply with international trading laws. You’ll be part of a team overseeing the European logistic network working to develop strategies for improving speed, decreasing cost and making life simpler for partners. With several deliveries a week – each containing thousands of items – it’s a complicated challenge and one the team thrives on.
Supply Chain Planning & Partnership
You’ll partner with Buying and Merchandising to enable the smooth and efficient flow of goods. This team are responsible for driving service and efficiency through effective planning and partnership. The team provide all of the educational materials allowing the processing centres to fulfil their service to stores
Strategy & Analytics
Within this area you will work with the team to provide specialist capability and leadership to underpin strategy and growth. This is about a lot more than just keeping things running smoothly day-to-day, you’ll learn to develop strategy and plan infrastructure and work with teams across the business to keep great fashion and homewares hitting the shelves.
Technology & Engineering
This team is responsible for delivering Capital Projects, new and existing Distribution Centre expansions and leveraging expertise to drive innovation and foster relationships with 3rd party providers. It also involves growth and new technology.
What does my career path look like?
You become a valuable member of the team from the day you start. Over the course of the programme, your personal drive and passion for the business could see you go from Analyst to Manager – and that’s just the beginning. With our help, you’ll be able to grow your supply chain career in the way you want, and fast.
The skills you’ll need
• A degree in any discipline
• An analytical mind
• Great communication skills
• Flexibility to work in different locations
• A real passion for amazing off-price products
• The hunger to learn
• The potential and ambition to lead.
• A valid driving license would be helpful
Alongside the requirements listed above, if you have European language skills – particularly German or Polish – that would be great. And if you’ve lived and worked in mainland Europe, even better. In a business like ours, these are great assets to have.
