Careermap – Open to work that excites? TJX Europe Graduate, Placement and Apprenticeships

Open to work that excites? TJX Europe Graduate, Placement and Apprenticeships



A little bit about us

You might not have heard of TJX Europe, but you’ve probably heard of our brands – TK Maxx and Homesense. So you may already know about our somewhat different approach to retail. It all revolves around the idea of Off-Price Retailing which, in short, means we offer quality labels for less. We do this by empowering our buyers to make decisions on the spot. They’re on the hunt throughout the year, buying merchandise from thousands of vendors around the world. It’s about thinking fast, being creative and making great deals. This means that no two deliveries are ever the same. And neither are any two days. It’s an unconventional approach which is echoed throughout all areas of TJX Europe.

A little bit about you

We offer Graduate Programmes, Placements and Apprenticeships across the different areas of our business – including Merchandising & Buying, Finance, Product Development, Marketing, Logistics and Loss Prevention. Whichever route you take, you’ll start with a comprehensive induction and then continue to develop yourself through a series of workshops and training programmes. All of which will enable you to take on responsibility quickly.

*Fiscal year ending January 30, 2017

Traineeship/Apprenticeships Qube Training – Drop in on Monday 29th Monday from 2.00-4.00 at the Careers Centre, Halifax

Here is some information regarding the Traineeship scheme we run.

Traineeships are Government funded programmes, aimed at getting young people into a career.

Once we have found a suitable candidate for a business, they would enter into an unpaid work experience programme that would last up to 12 weeks. Travel expenses are paid for by our company. I can also pay for the DBS check too!

Learners aged 16-18 – 12 week programme at 30 hours a week

Learners aged 19+- 7 week programme at 30 hours a week


This gives the young person a chance to experience working within a successful company and showcase their potential.

Alongside the work experience, they would be visited by a Traineeship Tutor for 3 hours per week to complete Employability Skills and Functional Skills. I can adapt the programme to integrate any learning the company uses as part of their induction and will also cover: British Values, Prevent, EYFS(within the nursery setting), safeguarding, Types and indicators of abuse (care/childcare), Health and Safety and Confidentiality/Data Protection, interview skills and CV writing.

The aim is to get them ready for an Apprenticeship.

Generally, we only work with Employers who agree to offer either a pad job or an Apprenticeship after the Traineeship has finished, however on some occasions, employers are so happy with their work and commitment that they take them on before the 12 weeks is up. I can also pay for the paediatric first aid certificate if the learner does progress onto an Apprenticeship! 

After the Traineeship then they would enter into a paid Apprenticeship position which currently stands at a minimum £3.50 per hour.

Areas covered- All West Yorkshire

Sectors covered:

Almost anything!

Examples include:

  • Care
  • Hospitality
  • Retail
  • Admin
  • Customer service
  • Child care
  • Hairdressing
  • I have even placed a plumber and several mechanics!

Pure Potential – Leeds and Manchester Sixth Form Apprenticeships with KPMG

KPMG have asked us to notify teachers and careers advisors about their brilliant opportunities for sixth formers.

They are looking for bright, motivated students from all backgrounds from Manchester and Leeds in particular. There are insight days to find out more, opportunities to combine study and work as well as fully-supported apprenticeship programmes in different areas of the business, so please forward this message on to parents and students, and perhaps consider making an announcement in assembly or during registration.

Kind regards,

Pure Potential


We’re getting in touch as we wanted to share career information, and opportunities, for your talented students leaving school or college in 2018.

Why does a firm like KPMG recruit apprentices? 

Put simply … because they’re our future.

Research shows there’s a growing pool of talented students, like yours, who are considering starting a career straight after finishing college or sixth form, instead of following a traditional university route.

Which Apprenticeship Programmes does KPMG offer?

KPMG360° Digital is a new four-year apprenticeship programme that combines academic study with practical work experience. At the same time, apprentices will also study for a BSc degree in Digital and Technology Solutions with our training provider, BPP University.

Where are KPMG apprentices based?

With KPMG360° Digital, apprentices will be based in our Tech hubs in Leeds or Manchester. The scheme will allow you to embark on a number of placements within teams across KPMG including: technology solutions, cyber security and forensic services. You will also be offered the opportunity to master new technologies such as cloud, data analytics and artificial intelligence alongside our experts who will support you in your career progression.

Hear from a sixth form college teacher

Louise, a teacher at a sixth form college wanted to help her students further explore their career opportunities. Today, Louise shares KPMG’s commitment to supporting young people from diverse backgrounds.

KPMG’s Apprenticeship Programmes offer plenty of support for your students at every step of the application process too – from making that initial decision to knowing what to bring along on the first day. Your students will also be supported financially by having their tuition paid for; earning while they learn.

If you’ve got any ambitious, bright students who might be interested in a KPMG Apprenticeship Programme, then you or your students, can find out more and apply here by visiting our careers website.

Our very best regards

KPMG Student Recruitment Team
