Description:
You would be responsible for the day-to-day workings of the leader(s) you support. Our team is responsible for providing a safe and secure environment for our employees, our guests, our content, our properties and our brand. It goes without saying that there will be expense reports, travel planning, hundreds of emails, and endless calendar jockeying, but this job is very much about people. The relationship you form with the executives you support is absolutely critical, because that’s what enables you to become a true partner. In addition to understanding your executive’s business — and business needs — inside and out, you’ll also need deep knowledge of the leadership and workings of The Walt Disney Company. As the "face " of your executives within The Walt Disney Company, your professionalism, loyalty and attitude are a reflection of the office, and as such, are a key component to its success. Every day as an Executive Support Professional is different! On any given day you might:

• Manage multiple high volume calendars including managing international calls/meetings.
• Create a multi-city travel itinerary, taking into account time zones, weather delays, traffic and fatigue levels;
• Interface directly with other senior executives and their support teams – your ability to work well with people on all levels is a very important part of your job;
• Review your leader’s schedule to build-in time for things like traveling to their next meeting;
• Understand the day’s priorities so you can be strategic about managing daily tasks;
• Schedule conference rooms, meetings and video chats;
• Be ready to throw the entire schedule out the door when an emergency comes up, then pick it up again when the dust settles;
• Handle extremely confidential, sensitive information, remembering that Disney is a publicly traded company;
• Assist with on-boarding new employees – you’ll be the "friendly face " that newbies count on to answer all their questions, including some who are extremely senior in the organization;
• Act as "casual buyer " of all office supplies for the department, and manage purchase orders and vendor contracts;
• Prepare regular reports and summaries — you’ll have tasks that you "own " completely;
• Collaborate on projects by conducting research, writing and fact-checking;
• Plan high-profile, complex events like movie premiers, product launches and offsites as well as smaller-scale gatherings such as service recognition parties;

** The company requires on-site workers to be fully vaccinated absent a legally required exemption approved by the vendor. Exceptions to the vendor vaccine requirement apply in states that have laws concerning employer vaccine mandates. Vendor must ensure that any unvaccinated workers follow applicable safety protocols when they are on-site. Specifically, for any of their workers who are not verified as fully vaccinated, it is the vendor’s responsibility to ensure that at all times when performing services on-site at a U.S. location or property, those individuals, at a minimum, will wear a disposable face mask certified by ASTM International with an ASTM Level 1 or higher rating (to be changed every day). If the individuals regularly work within three feet of others, the vendor must also implement a secondary mitigation measure such as a face shield or safety glasses. Please note that workers may only remove the face mask if the worker is alone in an office with the door shut, or the worker is six feet of distance from others and actively eating or drinking. Additional safety protocols may be required, as determined in the sole discretion of The Company or its affiliates. If requested, the vendor must inform its contact of any safety protocols the vendor has implemented for any of its workers while on-site at a location or property.

Basic Qualifications:
• 3 years of experience supporting an executive or several executives at the Director level or above
• Sharp written and verbal communication skills, including flawless grammar and a rich vocabulary;
• Desire to immerse yourself fully and learn all aspects of your executive’s business;
• Ability to multi-task and prioritize deadlines/deliverables;
• Strong proficiency with all types of computers, phones and office equipment, as well as mastery of Microsoft Office programs, SAP, Confluence, Concur, and working in a Windows environment
• A calm head and steady hand to deal with the unexpected;
• "EQ " skills to build bridges, forge alliances and encourage people to want to work with you;
• Complete reliability handling confidential, often highly sensitive information;
• Desire to truly be helpful to your leaders and co-workers, to go the extra mile without being asked;
• Some flexibility in your schedule – we value work/life balance, but in a pinch, a bit more time is needed;
• Very strong organizational skills and extreme attention to detail; and
• A highly professional demeanor, positive outlook and a can-do attitude.

Preferred Qualifications:
• Experience at The Walt Disney Company
• Experience working in a large public corporation
