Buying and Merchandising Level 4 Apprenticeship

Buying at TJX Europe is unlike anywhere else. We look for brilliant new brands to sell online and in-store every single day, not just a few times each year like most other retailers. It makes for an exciting and fast-moving place to work.

This apprenticeship will show you what it takes to be a buyers’ assistant as you provide admin support to teams of buyers who are out looking for the next big-selling fashion or furnishing items. You can expect to help co-ordinate all the product samples the team receives, and to get involved in strategy meetings. There’ll be study time too, of course, as you’ll be working towards an accredited level 4 apprenticeship qualification in buying and merchandising which will involve training at the Fashion Retail Academy twice a month.

Duration: 18-24 months
Location: Watford
Open date: 18th September 2024
Close date: 19th November 2024
