Placement, Brand and Marketing
I studied business management at Aston University, specialising in marketing and I was lucky enough to secure my year on TJX’s marketing placement programme. During this year, I spent six months in the shopping experience team learning about how we develop and continuously innovate the customer’s experience in store. My final six months were in the loyalty team where I supported in the relaunch of TJX Treasure.
I really enjoyed my year as I was trusted with my own projects and made connections with great and inspiring people. I enjoyed my time in the business so much that I ended up working part time at the Selly Oak TK Maxx Birmingham store whilst completing my final year of university. Once finishing my degree, I was then lucky enough to re-join the marketing function as part of the pan-European gift card team. I love the collaboration involved in my role, as well as working so closely with our European teams. No day is the same and I always feel challenged to get involved in new, stretched projects which are helping me to grow & evolve.
