{{ flashMessage.message }}


Employment: Full Time

Charterhouse is working with a global Financial Brokerage Firm based in the DIFC, and they are searching for a Chief Operations Officer (COO) to handle daily operating tasks for their Dubai branch. The COO will work closely with the CEO and the department heads to ensure continued success for the firm.

The Chief Operations Officer will be responsible for developing and executing the operational strategy in alignment with the company’s objectives. This role will lead a multidisciplinary team, so extensive knowledge of a variety of roles will be essential in order to maintain efficiency throughout the departments.

The daily tasks will include creating reports, reviewing and analysing KPIs for each department, planning budgets and cost management strategies as well as ensuring compliance of all activities.

In addition, this role will be expected to provide strategic leadership to multiple departments, and ensure the smooth collaboration with key stakeholders. Ultimately, the COO should aim to improve the quality and effectiveness of services and organisational efficiency in order to allow others to focus on client-facing work.


To be considered for this role, the successful candidate will have experience in similar senior positions in the UAE for the last 5 years, with a focus on people from other finance or wealth management firms. Our client is looking for someone with a strong track record of managing multidisciplinary teams and have excellent leadership qualities, as well as technical skills such as financial modelling and reports.


The Charterhouse brand and business was launched in Dubai and the Middle East in April 2004 by a team of international recruiters and management consultants, after its inception in Sydney, Australia in September 2003. Charterhouse Middle East is now positioned as the leading regional recruiter within its area of disciplines and functional markets.

Charterhouse offers professional and bespoke contingency and retained search services to all sectors of the market. Service quality is guaranteed, thanks to a particular focus on flexibility. Charterhouse was the first international search and selection business to establish Dubai as its base. The growth in the Middle East region has been mirrored by Charterhouse globally, with offices now in Qatar, Hong Kong, Singapore, Melbourne and Sydney.
