Job Summary:

Disney+ is an SVOD service that gives the whole family access to the biggest collection of Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel, National Geographic and Fox content all in one place. Designed to be enjoyed at home or on-the-go as an iOS or Android app for tablet, mobile and smart TVs, it allows fans to explore all of Disney’s stories and characters.

This is an exciting opportunity as part of a strategic priority for the Company and growing digital subscription business, forming the future of the direct to consumer experience, which will engage our guests across digital multiple channels.

The Content Merchandiser will work alongside other EMEA Content Merchandisers to successfully launch the Disney+ service across Spain & Portugal. Post-launch, the role will be responsible for regular content maintenance and publishing updates, and maintaining the editorial tone of voice for the Iberian services.

  • Plan Disney+ editorial events that are tailored to specific markets, including local seasonal events and unique editorial collections that align with local content priorities, working closely with the Design team to create appropriate assets
  • Ensure that all translation and localisation work is accurate and work closely with EMEA and Global Disney+ merchandising teams to ensure tone of voice remains consistent
  • Work closely with EMEA and Global Disney+ marketing teams to ensure alignment of local messaging and appropriate featuring
  • Develop regular routines for post-publish content validation and service QC to ensure all content is published and featured as scheduled
  • Work closely with schedulers both local and regional and share viewing trends and consumption data with wider team
