About Us:

As a Fortune 50 company with more than 350,000 team members worldwide, Target is an iconic brand and one of America's leading retailers.

Working at Target means the opportunity to help all families discover the joy of everyday life. Caring for our communities is woven into who we are, and we invest in the places we collectively live, work and play. We prioritize relationships, fuel and develop talent by creating growth opportunities, and succeed as one Target team. At our core, our purpose is ingrained in who we are, what we value, and how we work. It's how we care, grow, and win together.

To match the signature style and passion of Target's distinctive retail brand, Target Legal Affairs is a dynamic and deeply knowledgeable team of experts. Whether specializing in law, government affairs, employee relations, risk, compliance, ethics, security or food safety, we use our expertise and influence to advocate for Target, support Target's business and mitigate risk for the company. We work with both internal and external entities on key issues that affect Target's ability to productively, ethically and securely conduct business. Through our understanding of Target's business models and operations, we help facilitate Target's growth, and provide guidance that leaders rely on to make appropriate, well-informed decisions. Simultaneously, we help protect the business by applying our comprehensive understanding of risk and the law on issues that impact our brand, guests, team members, stores, distribution centers and corporate locations.

Here, you'll enjoy working autonomously with a healthy work-life balance. Your passion for learning the business, collaborating with others and building relationships with senior leaders and key business partners that you support will be essential to tackling the ever-changing legal and risk-based challenges we face in a dynamic and fast-paced retail environment.

A role within Corporate Security means working with a team dedicated to protecting the Target team, guests, property, and brand. You will use our comprehensive understanding and management of evolving security risks to protect our Target community throughout the world. You may support Target's Crisis and Threat Management, Preparedness and Continuity, Forensics, Intelligence, Physical Security and Safety, Executive Services, or Operations teams.

As a Target Sr. Security Specialist, no two days are ever the same, but a typical day will most likely include the following responsibilities. You'll support safe and secure operations by engaging with team members, partners, and guests at entry points of our buildings. Leveraging Target's policies and procedures, you'll provision building access to all our Target community members. Using intelligence-led tactics and remaining situationally aware, you'll maintain safe and secure standards throughout our buildings and properties. In addition, you'll respond to and accurately document security incidents and activities, sharing your expertise to educate and empower team members on what to do during emergencies. Furthering our culture of ethical conduct, safety, and compliance, you'll encourage team members to report security concerns to Corporate Security. You'll also execute select security routines and projects that advance our goal to minimize risk at Target. Lastly, you'll provide a Target-brand experience and environment by supporting the needs of others.
