About us:

Target is an iconic brand, a Fortune 50 company and one of America’s leading retailers.

Right on pace with Target’s distinctive retail brand, Target Finance and Accounting are transforming for the better. As so much more than a behind-the-scenes number-cruncher, you will be a truly collaborative partner with a seat at the table. You’ll bring your unique point of view, experience and passion for the work to your team and internal clients. Within Accounting, you’ll enjoy the interesting challenges of the competitive retail space, and you’ll have a 360-degree impact—rather than on just one part of the business. You’ll see your contributions come to life in virtually every area of this dynamic enterprise. And you’ll grow and be challenged in your career while having a healthy balance with life outside of work. A role in Accounting calls on your skills for quality financial reporting and technical accounting while providing thoughtful and responsive support, expertise and guidance to business partners. Your role will be critical to ensuring the success of Target’s business initiatives and core retail operations. Core responsibilities of this job are described within this job description.  Job duties may change at any time due to business needs.

As an Accountant you will ensure timely and accurate month-end close responsibilities, including preparation of SAP journal entries and financial statement disclosures, execution of SOX internal controls and analytical review of monthly results. As part of the Inventory Accounting team, you will develop strong relationships in order to influence partners and provide decision support to teams across the company. You will drive innovation and use analytics to improve processes and maintain a strong internal control environment. You will work on special projects and ad-hoc analysis as needed.

About you:

  • 4 year degree in Business: Finance or Accounting; 1-3 years of related experience
  • Strong knowledge of GAAP
  • Excellent communication, problem solving, organization and analytical skills
  • Ability to work independently and maintain a high level of initiative
  • Working knowledge of Microsoft applications (intermediate level of Excel)
  • Knowledge of SAP general ledger and related reporting tools (BeX, BW), preferred
