Do your research

It’s important that you find out as much as you can about TJX Europe and the programme you’re interested in. Yes, the information on this website is a good starting point, but there’s more you can do, such as checking out our social media channels and researching about us and the area of our business you’re interested in.

Visit one of our TK Maxx or Homesense stores and/or go online

Even though you’ll be based at our Watford Campus, it’s still a good idea to visit one of our stores or look online to get a real feel for our business. It will give you a chance to see our off-price business model in action and discover how we deliver great value to customers every day.

Get your application in ASAP

Here’s more proof that we’re different. Unlike many graduate programmes, we don’t have deadlines by which you need to get your application to us. Be quick though, because once the places are filled we can’t consider any more applications.

Come and meet us

There’s no better way to find out what we’re like to work with than speaking to us direct. You can do that in person at any of the graduate events we attend. Take a look on our events page to see if we’re near you soon. You can also read our associates stories to find out what others think of our application process, how they got a place on a programme, and what it’s like to work at TJX Europe.
