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 $33 billion. But we don’t want to stop there. We’re confident that we can continue to grow and become a $40 billion plus company. And as Finance touches every part of our business, it’s integral to helping us build our future.

Alongside the requirements listed below, if you have European language skills – particularly German or Polish – that would be great. And if you’ve lived and worked in Europe, even better. In a business like ours, these are great assets to have.
