Job Role: Merchandising and Buying

Company Info:

Be part of the adventure

Hello, we’re TJX Europe, and we want to invite you to be part of something huge. We’re part of The TJX Companies, Inc. – the world’s leading off-price apparel and home fashions retailer. We have an annual turnover of over $27 billion, globally. We are excited about our opportunities for the future and confident in our ability to grow to be a $40 billion company (although we won’t stop there).

Job Description:

How do we keep our shelves brimming with products our customers just can’t resist? Behind the products we sell are the men and women in our Merchandising and Buying teams – working together to decide on our product strategy. Merchandising create plans to select and sell our products, while Buying find and buy great products out in the market. The working relationship between the two is paramount, which is why, on our European Graduate Programme, you will have a lot of exposure to buying whilst starting out in a merchandising role. As you hone your skills and progress your career, you’ll choose whether to pursue more opportunities in merchandising or potentially move into buying, E-commerce, store trading or even within other areas of the business. Either way, you’ll be on route to an exciting career.

You’ll need to balance your creative thinking with a sharp commercial focus. Our off-price business model means that things move faster than at other retailers, so you need to be agile and ready for whatever challenges come your way. We deal with vendors around the world, so you can expect an international outlook and the opportunity to build relationships across Europe. Experience with product or in fashion or retail isn’t required, but an interest is important if you’re going to deliver the gems that our customers love. Although merchandising and buying have distinct roles within the business, both give you the chance to act as an entrepreneur and make a big impact.
