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 financial analyst or 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. In Finance, you’ll be an integral voice in discussions that lead to Target’s unparalleled shopping experience. Your analysis and recommendations will be directly applied to critical business decisions, from sales to merchandising and beyond. 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 Financial Planning & Analysis means belonging to a great team of genuine, diverse, courageous and versatile people who put integrity and ethics at the heart of everything they do. Together, you’ll drive outstanding financial results by enabling and accelerating Target’s strategic execution. You’ll nurture influential partnerships with leaders who value your credibility, thanks to the quality and reliability of your insights. To teams across Target, you’ll bring your skills for analytical rigor, creative problem-solving and sound decision-making. You’ll be an active contributor to cross-functional teams. You’ll rise to the challenge of the dynamic retail industry, bringing innovative solutions that have a direct impact on financial and operational direction-setting, merchandising and capital investments and how to best use our resources. All of your good work will help elevate and maintain Target as one of the world’s most recognized and best-loved retail brands.


As a Financial Analyst, you will provide analysis to the business function you support to help guide strategic decisions. You will partner with your team to create meaningful plans and monthly forecasts that accurately reflect the state of the business and provide for a meaningful financial benchmark. You will provide ad hoc decision making support for strategic initiatives and special projects. Job duties may change at any time due to business needs.


About you:

  • Four-year degree in Accounting, Business, Economics, or Finance
  • Four or more years Finance/Accounting/Audit or related Operations experience
  • Experience working with spreadsheet applications (Microsoft Excel)
  • Excellent analytical, decision-making, project management, planning and organization skills
  • Outstanding communication and relationship-building skills
  • Entrepreneurial spirit with strong initiative and willingness to take risks
