The Disney International Program Recruitment team returned from another exciting adventure from the Sub-Saharan African region. The members of the trip included: Sue, International Program Recruiter; Scott, International Program Recruitment Manager; Courtney, Education Area Manager at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park; and Kristi, Vice President of International, Campus and Disney Cruise Line Recruitment.

The team went to recruit candidates interested in the Cultural Representative Program from South Africa, Botswana and Namibia. These candidates will represent their culture and be part of the Disney family in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park. The team was there for two weeks and interviewed over 200 candidates!


Sue stated, “I am always thrilled to return to Sub-Saharan Africa because the candidates are so passionate about sharing their rich culture and heritage.” Our team is very pleased about our recruitment trip to the region and is very eager to see our candidates arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort in the future!!
