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 with 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.  Your role will be critical to ensuring the success of Target’s business initiatives and core retail operations.

As a Senior Accountant in payroll, you will be responsible for the ensuring payroll-related activity is reported completely and accurately in Target’s financial statements. You will perform weekly payroll analysis, month-end close responsibilities, and completion of internal controls.  You will have the opportunity to develop an end to end understanding of payroll process flows to drive innovation and automation to improve complex processes.  You will facilitate timely and accurate month-end close responsibilities as needed including SAP journal entries and account reconciliations. You will develop strong relationships and indirectly manage talent in order to influence accurate payroll reporting. 

Core responsibilities of this job are described within this job description. Job duties may change at any time due to business needs.

About you:

  • Four Year degree in Accounting of Finance
  • 4+ years of relevant business experience
  • Accounting and internal controls knowledge
  • Self-starter with a high level of curiosity, initiative and the desire to learn payroll
  • Strong business partner, able to collaborate with teams across the organization
  • Analytical skills, including ability to analyze large volumes of data and identify trends
