What You'll Do

Provide support for calendaring, travel, expenses, along with management and oversight of special projects, as needed. To perform these tasks effectively, you will be expected to become familiar with the products, people, and organizational dynamics within the Cisco Digitization Office (CDO) and Offer Monetization Office (OMO). You will be expected to understand how to handle, with a great degree of independence, incoming asks for time, meetings, resources and other needs from the Senior Director.  In addition to supporting this Senior Director, you will also provide support to two other Directors on the team. You will be responsible for determining when to refer matters to others, and to whom they should be referred. You will be responsible for following up to ensure proper disposition, and make sure nothing falls through the cracks. You will become a core member of the organization, attending staff meetings, all hands and other team events.

·       Calendar Management: Manages Senior Director’s calendar by prioritizing schedules and meetings. For example, may decide who gets on principal’s calendar, which meetings are attended, and who can attend in his place.

·       Meeting Planning and Organizations: Assists Senior Director in planning and organizing meetings by taking responsibility for assembling the agenda, location, meeting technology (WebEx, TP) based on participant needs, and all other meeting logistics.

·       Correspondence/Approvals: Supports Senior Director by acting as a proxy for communications and approvals as authorized. Answers general questions as necessary and refers (filters) routine matters to appropriate parties and follows up to ensure proper disposition.

In addition to the general administrative duties of an Administrative Assistant, daily tasks are carried out at a higher level of complexity. This includes researching issues, analyzing problems, determining approaches, compiling data and preparing reports. Due to the frequent engagement of the Director across Cisco as a whole, this individual will interface with and coordinate activities with other AAs/EAs and executives in Cisco. Work is generally of a critical and confidential nature.
