Job description

Open to changing the game?

We rely on our financial strength to be agile, adaptable and, ultimately, to grow the business. That’s where you come in.

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.

Over three years you’ll get the broadest possible experience of our core pillars of finance.

  • Business planning and analysis – provides vital strategic insight into the future of our business.
  • Financial control – ensures the financial success of our retail model.
  • Commercial finance – shapes the financial, commercial and operational decisions we make.
  • Financial accounting – provides accurate and timely financial information to key stakeholders in Europe and our Corporate Head Office in the States.

You’ll work with a range of internal and external stakeholders, at the same time as studying towards your CIMA qualification.
Not only that, we’ll fund your tuition, exams and your CIMA qualification. You’ll also get sufficient study time to work towards your exams (in addition to your holiday allowance).

What does my career path look like?
To us, you become a valuable member of the team from the day you start. At the end of the programme, you will be a well-rounded, financially-savvy, qualified accountant with great experience across many areas of finance. You’ll then have the opportunity to find the role that best suits your skills and your ambitions. That could mean re-joining one of the teams you’ve already worked within, or even taking on a new challenge in a new area.

Company information

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. And the more we grow, the more important Logistics becomes.

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.
