Merchandising and Buying Graduate Programme

At TJX, the partnership between merchandising and buying teams is crucially different. Collaborating daily, the teams develop in store and e-commerce strategies designed to excite our customers.

Merchandising takes an entrepreneurial approach to planning and trading to drive business, while our buyers constantly seal the best deals by securing new opportunities in the marketplace. The merchant skills overlapping both functions provides the dynamic flexibility that helps us deliver exceptional value to our customers. Learn more about our Merchandising and Buying career path.
