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 and Financial operations, 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 Finance Operations calls on your skills for quality financial and operational reporting and analytics, ensuring accurate financials 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.
As a Merchandise Payables Analyst, you will serve as the main contact for Target’s large vendor partners and own specialized payment processes. You will learn Target’s entire procure to pay flow, which will allow you to work through complex payment discrepancies and disputes. You will work closely with our Target India Accounts Payable Team to identify vendor trends and will then drive process improvements with vendors and internal partners to improve payment accuracy and reduce manual work. You’ll work with internal partners (including Store Operations, Supply Chain, and Merchandising) to improve the process and technical issues that impact finance. You will analyze vendor-specific data to solve business problems and develop business cases to influence our partners’ processes and technology. You will drive Target’s Enterprise Cost Accounting efforts through ownership of testing and data validation activities. You will lead projects, support our culture of automation and be an important leader in large enterprise projects. Job duties may change at any time due to business needs.
