Job description: 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.
Target’s distinctive brand love is infused throughout its many physical locations by the Properties teams. We have a direct and positive impact on the real estate, design, construction and maintenance of our stores, distribution centers and headquarters. Are you ready to help strategically grow Target’s brand through leading-edge design, development, construction and preservation? Can you effectively balance the efficiencies of a large-design build company with the unique challenges and innovative solutions required by individual sites? Then take your place on one of our Properties teams, and help us make the most of Target’s physical assets, both in the U.S. and overseas.
A role in Property Management means the opportunity to maximize the performance and longevity of Target’s assets while delivering value, reliability and brand integrity. Leverage and stretch your skills, whether your focus is electrical and plumbing, fire and security, smart buildings, HVAC and refrigeration, waste management and recycling, donations programs, or energy utility expense management. Here, your work will exceed the needs of both Target guests and team members, delivering a holistically positive and pleasing experience, every time they walk through our doors.
A role on the Waste Minimization team in Property Management means the opportunity to support sustainability efforts at all U.S. Target properties (Stores, HQ and DCs). The Waste Minimization team works to provide the best Recycling, Donation, Organics (Compost), ESIM and Trash solutions to Target team members, guests, and communities across the United States. Our goal is to minimize the volume and cost of trash disposal while increasing recycling, donation and organics volume and revenue.
As a Senior Program Owner, you will lead programs and special project initiatives with a zero waste mindset. The exciting part of this position? These efforts all map towards Target’s enterprise sustainability goals (Target Forward). No two days are ever the same as you engage with key partners (vendors, consultants and Target Team Members) and lead multiple programs. Programs can span across disposition optimization, minimizing food waste, through other emerging programs focused of further increasing Target’s waste diversion footprint.
