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 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 in the External Financial Reporting calls on your skills for quality financial reporting and accurate financials and technical accounting while providing thoughtful and responsive support, expertise and guidance to business partners. Your role will be critical to ensuring the success of Target's business initiatives and core retail operations.

As an External Financial Reporting Accountant you will assist in the preparation of quarterly and annual consolidated financial statements, footnotes, and MD&A, as well as assist in the preparation of earnings release financial information. You will also perform timely benchmarking with peers and other companies on financial statement disclosures and recommend changes as necessary. You will assist in assessing financial and accounting issues related to new and existing accounting guidance and business strategies and initiate process improvement efforts and external reporting system enhancements. Other duties include certain monthly or quarterly accounting duties and coordinating and participating in special projects as assigned.

Job duties may change at any time due to business needs.

About you:
  • Bachelor's degree in Accounting or Finance and 2-4 years work experience in accounting (public accounting and/or SEC reporting experience preferred)
  • CPA or similar designation
  • Strong knowledge of GAAP accounting and SEC disclosure standards
  • Excellent communication, organizational and analytical skills
  • Ability to work effectively and contribute in a team environment
  • Ability to work independently and possess proven project management skills
  • Strong digital acumen
