About us:

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 with Corporate Development means being a part of the small but mighty team that works across the enterprise to build a proactive pipeline of merger and acquisition activity. Here, you’ll contribute to the vital work that both aligns to and informs Target’s strategic priorities. You’ll cultivate the key external partnerships and commercial relationships that expand and enhance Target’s presence. And the breadth of your work will span everything from pipeline development and deal execution to investment management and acquisition integration. 

The Senior Manager, Corporate Development is responsible for evaluating and executing the company’s strategic acquisitions, investments, joint ventures, partnerships and divestitures. The Senior Manager will be a key member of the Corporate Development team and lead the financial support for the Corporate Development VP and Senior Directors. The role will also work closely with Target’s Capital Finance team to analyze store performance and identify stores that have either market share and/or expense-savings opportunities, and work with a cross-functional team to determine actions that should be taken to improve store performance.
