Job Description

Target Global Supply Chain and Logistics is evolving at an incredible pace. We are constantly reimagining how we get the right product to the guest even better, faster and more cost effectively than before. We are becoming more intelligent, automated and algorithmic in our decision-making, so that no matter how guests shop-in stores or on deliver the convenience and immediate gratification they demand and deserve. We are on a mission to win decisively over any competitor, with a seamless and superior guest service experience unlike any they can offer. Our teams work with the agility our mission requires, and we constantly come together to implement new processes in record time. So we're looking for exceptional people who are proactive, creative, independent, innovative, risk-savvy and comfortable working in varying degrees of ambiguity. Are you a critical thinker who seeks the root cause and can analyze both qualitatively and quantitatively? Are you a creative problem-solver who simplifies problems, quickly identifies solutions, commits to a plan and then positively influences others to execute it? If so, you will have success on one of our dynamic teams.

A role in Global Inventory Management means applying your specialized and well-informed point of view to what we buy, from whom, how much and where it needs to go from there. You'll use the right combination of data and expertise to achieve the best possible product availability through proper inventory positioning. You'll also focus on the efficient transportation of product around the world, while ensuring compliance with U.S. Customs regulations and achieving the best possible product availability through proper inventory positioning. You'll not only establish and develop great relationships with our vendors to encourage on-time shipment and delivery to stores and ultimately guests, but you'll also analyze transportation supplier capabilities and contracts for maximum speed, reliability and cost effectiveness.

As a Sr. Manager Supplier Performance Management, you will drive projects and processes that elevate Supplier Performance on key operational measurements such as On-Time Ship, On-Time Arrival, and Fill Rate through development of strong internal and external partnerships. You will leverage performance data and analytical capabilities coupled with cross-functional collaboration to identify trends, uncover root causes, and initiate action plans that improve supplier execution. As Target transforms its supply chain, you will have the opportunity to develop new routines and joint capabilities with top suppliers that enable faster and more accurate order fulfillment that ultimately lead to improved Guest experiences. You will lead data-driven analysis and continuous improvement activities with Target's largest merchandise supplier partners. You will partner with Inventory Management leadership to define supplier performance priorities and drive progress against these objective. You will provide education, analytical, and project management support to Suppliers, Inventory Management and Supply Chain teams in order to achieve joint operational outcomes.
