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, Accounting and Internal Audit are transforming for the better. And so much more than a behind-the-scenes support function, 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 business partners. In Internal Audit, 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 information technology, to sales and merchandising, and beyond.

A role on the Internal Audit team means providing an internal perspective by helping identify business risks to Target's strategic growth strategies, daily operations and reputation. You'll foster a culture of compliance awareness and business ethics. And you'll deliver objective, independent and risk-focused insights to the audit committee and business owners. You will be a critically important resource for understanding the effectiveness of key operational and strategic processes and controls.

Internal Audit is a key member of the Finance team, responsible for helping the company manage risk.  As an Information Technology Auditor on the Internal Audit team, you will:

  • Participate in the development and execution of audit plans that identify technology risks within business operational areas (sometimes referred to as Integrated Audits);

  • Provide operational and technology risk and control insights as part of the continuous risk assessment process;
  • Review remediation results with business partners to ensure plans have been completed and address identified risks;
  • Learn about the systems and environments that support an innovative, growing national retail organization;
  • Build your network of supporters and mentors within the technology and operational teams; and
  • Find a wide variety of positions, plenty of opportunities for professional growth, and broad exposure to all parts of the company.
Use your skills, experience and talents to be a part of shaping the vision and future of the Internal Audit team.  As an IT Internal Audit Senior Analyst, you will be responsible for:

  • Leading and executing large cross-functional audits of business operations and technology processes by assessing risk, and evaluating design and effectiveness of controls;
  • Collaborating with business partners to understand risk within their environment;
  • Participating in the continuous risk assessment process by remaining current with industry trends and emerging risks, consulting with internal and external business partners, identifying and assessing risks within the technology environment;
  • Developing strong relationships with business partners; and
  • Executing special projects as assigned by leadership.
