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. 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 in Finance Risk & Controls calls on your risk acumen and Sarbanes-Oxley compliance knowledge to build a world-class internal control environment. Here, you'll collaborate to assess risk and design controls in a dynamic environment, provide risk insights through partnership and enable the enterprise to develop innovative risk management solutions. Your ideas will be critical to ensuring the success of Target's business initiatives and core retail operations.

As a Senior Manager in Risk & Controls, you will be a leader on a team that builds strong partnerships across finance, technology and enterprise risk teams to provide consulting services and guidance on internal controls. You will proactively identify existing and emerging risks, assist with maintaining a comprehensive internal control program for the company, work with business partners to develop and update internal control documentation (process maps, risk control matrices, process narratives, etc.), keep up to date with the various systems and applications in use and use continuous improvement strategies to strengthen the overall control environment. You will exercise your program management skills to support the end-to-end operations of the SOX program, while being able to clearly articulate trends, risks and data insights to finance and technology leadership. Job duties may change at any time due to business needs.

About you:

  • Four-year degree or equivalent experience, preferably in Accounting or Finance
  • 6+ years internal or external audit and/or internal controls experience
  • Experience in guiding a team through annual SOX audit concepts (e.g., risk assessment/prioritization, process & internal controls, deficiency analysis)
  • Demonstrate strong relationship building, professional judgment, and critical thinking skills (e.g., persuasion, influence, conflict resolution)
  • Direct experience in using process automation and data analytical tools in business processes or controls testing/design
  • Capabilities in assessing IT-related risks in financial business processes, ERP experience preferred

  • Deep knowledge of Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX)
  • Ability to lead a team independently, prioritize work, balance multiple projects and deadlines
  • Commitment to advancing diversity & inclusion initiatives
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills with a knack for bringing stories to life through thoughtfully curated visualizations or slide decks
  • CPA or similar designation preferred

This position will operate as a Hybrid/Flex for Your Day work arrangement based on Target's needs. A Hybrid/Flex for Your Day work arrangement means the team member's core role will need to be performed both onsite at the Target HQ MN location the role is assigned to and virtually, depending upon what your role, team and tasks require for that day. Work duties cannot be performed outside of the country of the primary work location, unless otherwise prescribed by Target. Click here if you are curious to learn more about Minnesota.
