The Walt Disney Company Legal Executive Assistant, Corporate Technology in Burbank, California

You would be responsible for the day-to-day workings of the leader(s) you support. Our team works with our businesses worldwide on complex technology, telecommunications and other matters, including ever-changing, cutting edge technologies that enable our businesses to succeed. It goes without saying that there will be expense reports, travel planning, phone messages and endless calendar jockeying, but this job is very much about people. The relationships you form with the executives that you support are 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 Corporate Legal and Enterprise Technology and of related departments across the Disney enterprise. 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:

  • Conduct research, fact-check existing work, and prepare regular reports and summaries – you’ll have tasks that you “own” completely and will provide regular assistance on others;

  • 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 leaders’ schedules to build-in time for things like thinking and traveling to their next meeting;

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

  • Schedule conference rooms, meetings and video conferences;

  • 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 and your leaders handle very sensitive matters on a regular basis;

  • Draft letters and emails and documents 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;

  • Assist other support professionals with hard skills like computer programs, and soft skills like how to get things done within Disney and teamwork; and

  • Exemplify the professionalism and ethical judgment necessary to be a member of the Disney Legal Department.

  • At least 7 years supporting a Vice President and/or equivalent experience;

  • Excellent 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;

  • Experience with terminology and functions necessary for a legal department;

  • Strong proficiency with all types of computers, phones and office equipment, as well as mastery of Microsoft Office programs, SAP, Concur, Legal Tracker, NetDocuments, 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 professional demeanor, positive outlook, a can-do attitude and a sense of humor.

  • Experience at The Walt Disney Company

  • Experience working on technology contracts; and

  • Experience working in a large public corporation.

  • Bachelor’s degree and/or equivalent experience

  • Master’s degree
