  • About us:

Target is an iconic brand, a Fortune 50 company and one of America's leading retailers.

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 (GIM) 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 establish and develop great relationships with our vendors to encourage on-time shipment and delivery to stores and ultimately, guests.

  • Lead, build and develop a high performing, diverse, and engaged team of inventory analysts, ensuring proper inventory positioning to drive availability & optimal guest experience.
  • Lead and represent Inventory Management in the merchandising division roundtable, partnering closely with the Merchandising Divisional and the Planning Divisional to reach division goals.
  • Develop your inventory analysts to be operational strategists, building business acumen, and rooting decisions in strategy that bring joy to our guest while delivering inventory management and financial goals.
  • Lead the inventory management team in solving complex problems by simplifying a problem to find the root cause, considering multiple scenarios, long-term impacts, and thinking non-traditionally to develop the right solution for our guest.
  • Drive for continuous improvement by being better tomorrow than we are today. This means evolving, streamlining processes, eliminating redundancy, creating focus, and constantly evaluating effectiveness.
  • Influence and partner with leaders across Merchandising, Stores, Supply Chain, Sales & Operations, and many other areas to deliver enterprise goals.
  • Create strong partnerships with suppliers that enable on time & in-full shipments that deliver against our reliability goals.
