About us:
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 and guest-inspiring assortments that Target is known and loved for. Our goal is to consistently deliver exceptional value, quality and style that elevates Target as the premier retailer in a competitive global marketplace. Through leading retail and business strategies that make the most of Target's resources and partnerships worldwide, Merchandising works across product categories to create a localized shopping experience, both online and in our 1800 stores.

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.

Pricing & Promo represents a significant portion of the Apparel business at Target and will provide you with key skills to assess and adapt retail strategies. Working within Pricing & Promo, your mission is to develop enterprise wide pricing and promotion cycles in partnership with merchants impacting millions of dollars within the enterprise.

There is also a strong partnership with Marketing and Digital to bring offers to life for the Guest, as well as partnership with Store Operations, Finance and other key areas.

As a Pricing & Promo Strategy & Planning Lead, you'll take the lead to develop pricing & promotion strategies and plans that will result in optimal financial outcomes and support broader price perception objectives for Target. You will learn and understand merchant businesses, strategies, and objectives. You will refine strategies based on market conditions and business performance and develop division-specific financial goals and objectives for key initiatives in-season. Through your coordination of cross-function reviews you will have the opportunity to support new and on-going initiatives. Using your strategic problem solving skills, you will drive process improvements and identify business risks and opportunities based on financial and operational performance. Leverage your strong critical thinking and communication skills to educate merchants and other partners by influencing pricing decisions and driving collaborative dialogue and processes between Merchants, Marketing and the Pricing and Promo COE. We'll support you along the way with robust onboarding, as well as personal and career development, to help you grow as a strong Strategy & Planning Lead. The exciting part of retail? It's always changing!
