Responsibilities

You would be responsible for the day-to-day workings of the leader(s) you support. We work with filmmakers, attorneys, production executives, post production executives, creative executives, marketing and publicity to create the films that movie-going audiences love and expect from the Disney brand.

The relationship you form with the executive(s) 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 Credit & Title Administration and of related departments across the Disney enterprise. As the "face" of your executive(s) 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.

  • Understand the day's priorities so you can be strategic about how you direct phone calls;

  • 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;

  • Draft letters and emails on behalf of your leaders;

  • 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;

  • Manage large purchase orders and vendor contracts;

  • Mentor and train younger support professionals in hard skills like computer programs, and soft skills like teamwork;

  • Plan large, high-profile events like premiers, product launches, off-sites and team-building activities;
