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

Right on pace with Target's distinctive and beloved retail brand, the Indirect Sourcing & Procurement Center of Excellence (COE) works across the business to maximize every resource, asset and relationship. We use good data, in-depth analysis and cross-functional insights to identify and communicate best practices, elevating our sourcing and procurement activities to achieve their very highest potential.

A role with Shared Services means supporting category management plans and sourcing and negotiation approaches for all indirect spend categories. You'll share and promote the best tactics across the entire company while developing deep category knowledge and close client relationships in each.

As a Lead Pricing Analyst on the Sourcing Performance Management team, you'll use your skills to design and maintain the financial models that support the COE.

Your input will be key to Target realizing the expected value from the terms of our agreements.

The Lead Pricing Analyst is considered a subject matter expert in sourcing performance management, exhibiting strong knowledge of pricing models, scenario optimization, and sourcing techniques. Drives the design, build, and maintenance of Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) financial models to support clients with relevant financial comparisons and analyses throughout the Source to Manage ("S2M") process primarily for Strategic and Leveraged Spend Categories with high complexity. Partners closely with business teams and Finance to gather historical volumes and spend, future forecasts, and budget information in order to identify relevant baseline spend. Ensures that key pricing assumptions are identified and incorporated in TCO Models. Identifies relevant business constraints in order to present viable sourcing decision scenarios highlighting financial and non-financial trade-offs. Job duties may change at any time due to business needs
