Graduate & Placement Programme FAQs
General Recruiting Questions
Where can I meet TJX Europe employees? Do you go on campus?
We will be visiting universities across the UK and Europe over the coming academic year. Don’t worry if we are not at your university this year, you will also have the opportunity to meet us at a number of national graduate careers fairs as well. It’s a fantastic opportunity for you to find out more about us and meet our employees, and for us to meet you for the first time. Have a look at our Events page to find out where we’ll be and when.
Do you offer summer Internships or Work Experience?
Unfortunately, TJX Europe is currently unable to offer work experience or internships. If you’re still studying, you may like to consider our Placement Programmes.
Do you pay travel expenses if I attend an Assessment Centre?
If you are invited to one of our Assessment Centres, TJX Europe will reimburse reasonable travel expenditure incurred. Further information regarding expenses will be given in detail when we call to invite you in.
I want to work abroad. Are there opportunities with TJX Europe?
Because we are an international business, there are endless opportunities as your career progresses in a range of different countries across Europe and potentially even further afield.

Do I need to speak another language?
Because our business crosses borders, we’re keen to hear from people who have European language skills or experience of living and working in Europe – but these things are not essential.
Where will I be working?
For the majority of our programmes you will be based at our European Head Office in Watford, UK, although you may be required to travel to meet the needs of the business – particularly for Merchandising and Buying where you will be required to visit stores on a regular basis.
For some of our programmes you will be based in stores across the UK and Europe. Further information about each programmes location is found in the job descriptions.
What is the starting salary?
Our programmes offer competitive starting salaries, which start from £25,000 for Graduates and from £18,000 for Placements. The exact salary and benefits package for your chosen programme will be discussed with you at the point of offer.
What is your visa policy?
Unfortunately, TJX Europe cannot sponsor any visa applications or extensions for any of our vacancies. Therefore, you’ll need to have full and indefinite right to work in the UK at the time of application.
How many graduates will you recruit?
Across all of our programmes, we will recruit over 120 Graduates and Placements to start in 2016.
