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, in a role in Target Finance and Accounting, 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 Finance, you'll enjoy the interesting challenges of the competitive retail space. 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.

As a Senior Manager, you will lead the strategy and development of data analytics capabilities within Internal Audit's activities (e.g., audit plan development, identifying and assessing risks and internal controls).   Leading the strategy and development of data analytics capabilities requires a strategic and innovative mindset, leading a team with a high level of initiative, providing clear direction and coaching,  holding others accountable, managing work effectively, communicating with business owners and developing and maintaining strong business relationships.  You will foster your personal development by remaining current with industry trends and emerging risks and gaining unique experiences supporting a meaningful career. Job duties may change at any time due to business needs.
