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 Operations is 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 Operations, 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 Finance Operations within the Controller's Group 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 Accounts Payable Director, you'll provide strategic direction and leadership to the global accounts payable team, ensuring processes and controls are effective for timely, accurate and efficient accounts payable activities. You will manage all aspects of merchandise and indirect accounts payable operations, including payment processing, payable reconciliation and dispute resolution. By partnering closely with our merchandising, procurement, supply chain and stores organizations you will drive a comprehensive approach to our vendor payment experience. Leverage your strong strategic and analytical skills to anticipate and analyze new accounts payable industry trends and solve problems to continually accomplish industry-leading performance metrics. This role reports to the Vice President, Finance Operations.

We'll support you along the way with personal and career development, to help you grow. The exciting part of retail? It's always changing!
