About TJX Europe

Hello, we’re T.K.Maxx, and we want to invite you to be part of something huge. We’re part of The TJX Companies, Inc. – the world’s leading off-price apparel and home fashions retailer. We have an annual turnover of over $30.9 billion in revenues (FY16). We are excited about our opportunities for the future and confident in our ability to grow to be a $40 billion plus company (although we won’t stop there). We are also very proud that 2015 marked the 20th consecutive year of consolidated comparable store sales increases.

TJX is a global retail force with over 3,600 stores in nine countries and over 216,000 associates and 3 e-commerce sites. We operate T.J. Maxx and Marshalls (combined, Marmaxx), HomeGoods and Sierra Trading Post, as well as tjmaxx.com and sierratradingpost.com, in the United States; Winners, HomeSense, and Marshalls (combined, TJX Canada) in Canada. While our story began in the United States, since launching in Europe in 1994 our TK Maxx and HomeSense stores have quickly become market leaders in the UK, Ireland, Germany, Poland, Austria and the Netherlands, with over 495 stores across Europe and a successful online retail business. We’re growing at a fantastic pace globally and TJX Europe is one of our key channels for growth. This makes TJX Europe the perfect place to launch your career.

Because we are an international business, there are endless opportunities for your career in a range of different countries across Europe and potentially even further afield. With our training and support, you’ll be perfectly placed to launch a truly international career. We would love to hear from you if you have lived or worked in Europe to support us with our journey, or if you have a passion to be part of our business growth and would love to increase your European exposure.

We are focused on our future and recognise that we can only grow by investing in our people. But we’re just as confident that you’ll benefit from our heritage and over thirty years of retailing experience.

All in all, this means we can offer you one of the most exciting and inspiring European graduate careers available – so come and join us for the adventure.

At TK Maxx we give our customers a huge range of off-price fashion and homeware that keeps them coming back for more. We’re able to endlessly surprise and delight our customers by offering them amazing value of up to 60% less.

Our first TK Maxx store opened in the UK in 1994, proving a hit with many. More stores followed, and we opened in Ireland in 1997, Germany in 2007, Poland in 2009 and Austria in early 2015. Now, TK Maxx is Europe’s largest off-price retailer. Right now we believe our future in Europe has never looked better.

We cater to all tastes, stocking big name brands alongside up-and-coming labels and all-time classics. This means our customer demographic is about as broad as it gets. What’s more, we never know what’s in a delivery until it arrives at the store. With daily deliveries, this means we need to be extremely agile to get everything out on the shop floor. It also means there are plenty of opportunities to be commercially savvy in your work with us.

At HomeSense we search the globe for quality branded homeware that we sell in our stores for up to 60% less. Just like TK Maxx, we cater to all tastes. In our stores you’ll find treasures from one-off decorative pieces to designer bed linen, real leather furniture, and contemporary art.

We first opened our doors in 2008 in Poole, in the UK. Right now there are 39 stores across the UK, but their success and our plans for growth mean there will soon be many more.

Our deliveries also arrive daily and – just like TK Maxx – our off-price model means that we never know what’s going to arrive, from tea sets to furniture. Either way, we need to get everything out onto the shop floor for our customers to discover.

Right now HomeSense is still a relatively young brand, making this a very exciting time in its development. This makes it a dynamic platform on which to grow your career.
