About us:

Target is 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 Target.com-we deliver the convenience and immediate
gratification they demand and deserve. We are on a mission to win over any
competitor, with a seamless and superior guest service experience. Our teams work
with the agility our mission requires, and we 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 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

As a Lead Analyst, Regional Team on the Sales and Operations Planning
(S&OP) Team you will have the opportunity to contribute to an emerging team
that's adding smart and capable people all the time. You will partner with Inventory
Management and S&OP business analysts to build weekly operational forecasts and
longer range quarterly plans that support your Region of distribution centers. You
will share those forecasts with Field and leadership teams and you will lead routines
to continuously improve both forecast accuracy and their usefulness for customers.
You will partner closely with Field Operations, Field, Network Planning, Inventory
Management Operations, Transportation, and Supply Chain Finance partners to
understand site capabilities across time horizons and identify pinch points between
field capabilities and forecasts. When problems arise you will lead partner teams to
proactively develop solutions that support Target's sales and financial goals and
appropriately balance business needs and operational risks.

Job duties may change at any time due to business needs.
