Job description / Role
This is an exciting new role for a Business Development & Marketing Assistant to join one of the leading and highly prestigious international law firms in Dubai. Initially this role will be a fixed term contract for 3 months to assist the Business Development Manager during an exceptionally busy time of year, with an immediate start until the end of 2019.
As a Business Development & Marketing Assistant you will be fully involved in supporting the team with the annual events calendar and upcoming corporate dinners, managing and drafting invitations and responses and any specific requests made by the professional and high achieving guests from the legal field. The role will also include event support on the particular day to ensure everything runs smoothly and closes down efficiently post-event. This involves scheduling of de-briefing meetings and team updates.
The successful candidate will also be involved in the marketing strategy in consideration of the global initiatives, research and market activity reports and building relationships with outsourced third parties, such as vendors, stakeholders and guests at all levels of seniority. Additionally, as this is a corporate environment there will be internal communications to deliver including credential updates, success stories and award nominations and rankings. This is done both internally and also on social media, where you will be expected to draft content and work closely with the Business Development Manager to ensure this is both timely and in line with the global marketing strategy.
We are seeking candidates who are working towards, or have already achieved a marketing qualification and whom have a strong work ethic with a professional outlook. You should be IT literate in all MS office software including excel and PowerPoint and possess strong communication and relationship building skills.
