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. In Finance, you'll be an integral voice in discussions that lead to Target's unparalleled shopping experience. Your analysis and recommendations will be directly applied to critical business decisions, from sales to merchandising and beyond. 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 on the Financial Planning and Analysis team means providing insight and guidance to support Target's strategic growth strategies and financial decisions. You'll deliver objective and financially-focused insights to the business owners and finance leaders. You will be a critically important resource for long-term and annual financial planning, analysis and drive cross-company initiatives.

As a Senior Manager on Target's Market Research and Analysis team, you will be responsible for market analysis, strategic planning and location research for Target's new and existing store capital investment programs. You will partner closely across the Market Research, Finance and Properties-Real Estate, Operations, Stores and Merchandising teams to develop and communicate holistic market strategy, drawing on your expert geographic, store and market insights. You will influence both new store location strategy and existing store reinvestment decisions geared towards maximizing market value. You will own store sales forecasting for locations across your unique set of markets, driving for accuracy while evaluating the importance of store location attributes; interpreting strategic tradeoffs, competitive positioning, site dynamics, market trends, demographic and economic indicators. You will leverage your excellent communication skills for presentations to Senior Leadership across MRA, Real Estate, Finance and the Capital Committee. You will have the opportunity to contribute ideas to improve research methodologies, GIS systems, databases, demographics and analytical tools. Job duties may change at any time due to business needs.
