Target is an iconic brand, a Fortune 500 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 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 accounting calls on your skills for quality financial reporting and accurate financials 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 and advertising operations.

As a Senior Accountant on the Financial Reporting team you will facilitate timely and accurate month-end close responsibilities, including the preparation of financial reports and trial balance review. You will prepare journal entries in compliance with SOX and internal control guidelines. You will work closely with the finance and business teams supporting Roundel, Target’s retail media advertising business, and other specific business areas to ensure accurate data is used in ad hoc financial reporting. You will work on special projects and ad-hoc analysis as needed. You will develop strong internal and external relationships in order to influence partners and provide client support to teams across the company. You will indirectly manage talent including the coaching and training of others on the team. You will drive process improvements by using data analytics and innovation. You will enforce governance policies around accounting and reporting and maintain a strong internal control environment. Bring your passion for this rapidly evolving environment and have a hand in delivering the profitable financial results that benefit the entire business. 

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 college degree in Accounting or Finance
  • Four or more years Finance/Accounting/Audit or related Operations experience
  • Strong technology skills, including process automation and advanced Excel capabilities
  • Excellent analytical, decision-making, project management, planning and organization skills
  • Resilient and adaptable, working through challenges and balancing a fluctuating workload in a fast-paced environment
  • Ability to work cross functionally; strong written / oral communication skills
  • Experience with marketing channels – inclusive of digital, traditional, video, and social (preferred)
  • Experience with the following systems: SAP, SalesForce (preferred)
