Taking a point of view, having a voice, getting people to talk are all skills that will help you deliver this commitment. • Help your EC member be a better leader who ignites the passion of others by staying connected to people…energize teams by giving people autonomy to deliver…steering the way by being as clear as possible.

Advanced education beyond high school is preferred because it helps teach people how to think, manage time, meet deadlines and so on. But it’s ok to be super smart, savvy, and experienced, too. We would like a minimum of 5 years of executive support experience at The Hershey Company, or around 15 years of executive support or chief of staff experience. And, yes, we want diverse thinkers with different life experiences who create inclusivity of others by interrogating ideas and building up people. #LI-AM1
