Target is an iconic brand, a Fortune 50 company and one of America's leading retailers.
Target Merchandising is evolving at an incredible pace. We are constantly reimagining how this $70 billion retailer offers the innovative, guest-inspiring items that Target is known and loved for. Our goal is to deliver exceptional value, quality and style to elevate Target as the premier retailer in a competitive global marketplace. Through intelligent and progressive business strategies that make the most of Target's resources and partnerships worldwide, Merchandising works across product categories to create a localized shopping experience online and in our 1800 stores. Are you a creative problem solver who loves to see your work translate into real results? Can you collaborate effectively, execute a plan efficiently and positively influence how Target chooses and presents the right product in the right place at the right price? If so, you will have success on one of our dynamic teams.
A role with Space & Presentation means you're on a mission to create better store space and experiences for our guest while maximizing sales. We are responsible for ensuring the right item is on the right shelf in the right store. On the Space side, we do this by using analytics to determine the appropriate footage for each assortment for every store (“adjacency”). Each store's assortment is assigned to a planogram (POG) which is developed in Presentation to ensure the localized assortment meets presentation objectives and is associated to the correct location in a store. We believe that making increasingly better space allocation and presentation decisions will increase sales, improve guest satisfaction and reduce out-of-stocks. Here, you'll partner with and manage cross-functional project teams in Merchandising, Store Design, Marketing, Store Operations and Non-Retail Procurement from strategy to execution to achieve an inspiring and convenient in-store guest experience.
As a Sr Business Partner in Space & Presentation, you'll take the lead as you partner with buying leaders to drive the Adjacency and Map-It Process. You will coordinate and execute Strategy and Transition meetings to establish business strategies and develop timing and actions as well as recommend changes to improve and meet presentation guidelines. You will maintain accurate display to store specific ties in the Merchandise Presentation Department host system. Leverage your communication skills to provide pertinent information dealing with presentation displays between stores and Merchandising as well as store grouping information to key partners. You will interact with Merchandising partners to determine presentation direction and create adjacencies and planograms as needed for new and remodel stores and drive the development of special projects such as: new merchandising strategies, fixture strategies, test strategies, micro-marketing/small market opportunities and training materials. We'll support you along the way with robust onboarding, as well as personal and career development, to help you grow as a strong Space & Presentation Sr Business Partner.
