Sarah Tilley currently serves as Vice President, Talent Acquisition and Global Mobility for The Walt Disney Company (TWDC) Corporate. In this role, Sarah oversees all recruitment and research strategies for TWDC Corporate, as well as targeted enterprise recruitment initiatives throughout the TWDC organization. Sarah oversees all related staffing initiatives for TWDC Corporate, including campus recruiting, contingent workforce management, and all additional supporting programs and operations. In addition, Sarah’s role was recently expanded to include a new centralized global mobility function which will fit into the larger Disney Integrated Talent Management vision.
Sarah was most recently in the role of Director Recruitment for the Disney Interactive Media Group (DIMG) where she spent the last four years overseeing all full-time hires, temporary services, vendor management, executive search, research and sourcing, industry events, campus and recruitment programs for the technology, online, mobile and gaming division of the Company. During her time at DIMG, Sarah reduced the quantity of positions filled using outside agencies from 12% to less than 2% through strategic structure, resource and process changes, including the creation and implementation of a formal sourcing model and strategy. To satisfy the growing demand for a talent pipeline in a highly competitive marketplace for technology and gaming talent, Sarah developed several creative sourcing strategies employing social media, crowd-sourcing and other alternative strategies.
Before coming to Disney, Sarah streamlined and enhanced recruitment/research systems and processes for all divisions of Warner Bros. Entertainment in a role that oversaw all Research/Recruitment Operations & Programs for the Studio. Prior to that, Sarah oversaw all recruitment and research strategies for professional and executive-level positions for the multi-billion dollar Warner Home Video division. There, she managed the division’s domestic internship and sales trainee programs, as well as international and domestic management development programs.
Leading up to her move into the entertainment industry, Sarah held increasingly responsible roles at nationwide and global search firms, including Heidrick & Struggles, the world’s leading retained executive search firm, where she regularly completed searches at the C-level for large, substantial entertainment companies.
Sarah has a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Arkansas and is PHR (Professional in Human Resources) Certified. Read More >>
