schedule: Full time
As a Fortune 50 company with more than 350,000 team members worldwide, Target is an iconic brand and one of America's leading retailers.
Working at Target means the opportunity to help all families discover the joy of everyday life. Caring for our communities is woven into who we are, and we invest in the places we collectively live, work and play. We prioritize relationships, fuel and develop talent by creating growth opportunities, and succeed as one Target team. At our core, our purpose is ingrained in who we are, what we value, and how we work. It’s how we care, grow, and win together.
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 Finance, 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 Financial Reporting calls on your skills of accurate financial reporting and 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 retail operations.
As Director of Financial Reporting, you will manage the preparation and review of critical internal financial reports, ensuring accurate and timely delivery to senior leadership and partners. You will be responsible for the accounting close processes for the entire enterprise, including the consolidation of legal entities. You will also review quarterly investor relations materials to ensure accuracy.
In this role, you will work closely with senior leadership and various business partners (including Investor Relations, Financial Planning & Analysis and Tax). As Target’s business evolves, you will also provide accounting and operational guidance for transactions, acquisitions, new business initiatives, and other projects to ensure optimal business decisions are made and financial objectives are achieved.
You will also have the opportunity to lead and develop high-performing team members by focusing on outcomes, establishing clear roles and responsibilities, and executing development plans. You will also be responsible for strategically evaluating the team vision and goals.
Core responsibilities of this job are described within this job description. Job duties may change at any time due to business needs.
• Bachelor's degree in accounting or finance
• 10+ years experience, public accounting experience preferred
• Strong accounting skills, including knowledge of GAAP & SOX
