Open to discovering a new way?
Become the eyes and the ears that keep 385 million units of merchandise moving as efficiently as possible.

Who is TJX Europe? 
You might not have heard of TJX Europe, but you've probably heard of our brands - TK Maxx and Homesense. We're part of the world's leading off-price apparel and home fashions retailer - TJX Companies, Inc. Last year, our annual revenue was over $35billion*. But we don't want to stop there. We're confident that we can continue to grow. Of course, we'll get there quicker by continuing to focus on Loss Prevention.
 
At TJX Europe we like to do things a little differently. As Loss Prevention touches every area of our business, we feel that graduates should understand every part of our business too. 

Responsibility from the start 
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. 

You'll get hands-on practical experience rotating between different-sized stores and processing centers to really get a grip on our business.

You'll gain in-depth knowledge of Loss Prevention and how this fits into the broader business, including Supply Chain and e-Commerce.

There's also plenty of opportunities to take on different projects, work with a variety of colleagues from across the business and gain a whole range of skills. 

Where can my career go? 
To us, you become a valuable member of the team from the day you start. Once you complete the programme, you'll be equipped with all the skills and commercial understanding you'll need to move into the role that's right for you. There are many opportunities to move onwards and upwards within the business - and we will work with you to find a role that's right for you. 

The skills you'll need
  • A degree in any discipline
  • Be a natural leader
  • Be a flexible thinker with an inquisitive mind; comfortable both in stores, processing centers, and the Head Office
  • Great at partnering with others and strong people skills
  • An eye for detail
  • Good analytical skills
  • The confidence to manage a large team
  • A passion for working in a fast-paced environment
  • A valid driving license would be helpful
Alongside the requirements listed above, if you have European language skills, particularly German or Polish, that would be great. If you've lived and worked in Europe outside of the UK then even better. In a business like ours, these are great assets to have.

HM prison

Operational Support Staff

Nationwide

Starting salary between £18,726 and £19,626 (includes additional allowance and unsocial hours) + excellent benefits

Keeping a prison running smoothly and safely takes many things. Good judgement, common sense and responsibility to name a few. Above all, though, it takes teamwork. And as part of our Operational Support team you'll be right at the
heart of it.

We're currently looking for individuals to join us in prisons across the UK. Working in a busy, professional environment, and operating on a shift-pattern that will include some night work, you'll support the day-to-day running of the establishment. Unlike our prison officers, you'll have relatively limited contact with prisoners themselves. Instead your role we see you involved in everything from patrol and gate duties to managing deliveries, supervising visitors, monitoring phone calls and CCTV.

In return you'll receive a good salary, Civil Service pension, season ticket loan
and many other benefits. So, if you're looking for an opportunity to be part of
a friendly team that has a big influence on the day to day operation of a prison, click 'Apply' now.

Find out why you should start a JTL apprenticeship today

JTL has helped thousands of people to improve their career prospects with an apprenticeship in building services engineering.
As a leading training provider with over 25 years' experience of successfully delivering electrical and plumbing apprenticeships in England and Wales, we are well placed to help you launch a rewarding lifelong career in the sector.
There's an increasing shortage of skilled tradespeople in the UK due to ageing of the workforce so there's plenty of demand for new talent with excellent potential earnings.
It takes between two and four years to become a fully qualified craftsperson working in specialist areas, such as electrical, plumbing and heating and engineering. Once qualified it is possible to earn good salaries in the region of £28k to £30k and higher*.
Apprenticeships are open to everyone aged 16 and above, from school leavers to career changers to full-time mums wanting to return to work. There are no specific qualifications, work experience or special skills required to apply.
In the run up to National Apprenticeship Week we decided to interview some of our current learners to find out why they chose to start an apprenticeship with JTL and to ask them what they love best about their apprenticeships.

We hope our film will help inspire you to be part of the bigger picture and apply for a JTL Apprenticeship today!
