“I was looking for employment post-pandemic and I came across the Prince’s Trust and T.K. Maxx 'Get Into Loss Prevention' Programme. I've previously worked in varied roles in the retail industry and figured I'd take on a new challenge. What did I have to lose?
“My placement was at The Prince's Trust South London Centre and I was also buddied up for in-store days at T.K. Maxx.”
Upon completing the program, Pete was hired as a Loss Prevention Officer (LPO).
“I enjoyed being an LPO as it was new and a gateway to developing myself at T.K. Maxx. After gaining invaluable knowledge and insight into the business, I became hungry for more and knew that I'd have to demonstrate my capabilities and skills in order to be considered for progression.
“I was honored to be promoted to the Loss Prevention Advisor (LPA) role, and to hear from my manager and store team that it was well deserved and a reflection of my upwards trajectory since starting at the business.
“The journey is continuous, and the hard work isn't over yet.”
— Pete, Loss Prevention Advisor, T.K. Maxx
