What is it like working for TJX Europe?
It’s an absolute whirlwind! Every day is different and fast-paced since the company is growing so quickly. There’s been a lot of exciting work in IT to get us in the right shape to continue to expand.
My favourite part of working here is being able to interact with the lovely people here; I’ve been made to feel comfortable with being myself, surrounded by like-minded people in a nurturing environment who are so supportive of everything. It’s great to be participate in a light-hearted atmosphere and we’re always encouraged to have a bit of fun where we can.
Tell me about your career progression/on-going development with TJX Europe.
I joined the Information Technology graduate programme in September 2016, which has been an eye-opening experience so far. I started off in the Infrastructure and Operations teams as a Support Analyst in the Ecommerce and Stores area. I then gained experience within the Stores demain of IT and am currently enjoying expanding my knowledge and expertise within the dynamic world of Supply Chain.
How much responsibility are you given?
I’ve been given a huge amount of responsibility since the very beginning! About a week after I joined, I was getting stuck in with real business projects and problem solving (with guidance of course!). There’s been a lot of trust placed in me that I can get the job done, and from then on I’ve never felt as though anything has been held back from me – in fact, I can probably say it’s been the opposite, where we’ve been encouraged to stretch beyond our comfort zone and give anything a go.
What is a typical working day like?
I’ve worked across a few teams and environments and it still surprises me that every day is different A typical day might begin with a quick-fire catch-up session about the project of a project, and then I might spend time with our associates in the business to understand their needs. I could then be involved in a fundraising activity in the afternoon, or have a call or workshop with our international colleagues over in The US and Canada!
