Dubai, UAE

Ref: NP447-1237

Job description / Role

Employment: Full Time

A superb career opportunity has arisen for a career C-Suite EA to support a dynamic CEO / Chairman of this diversified investment house, with offices based throughout Europe and the Middle East. With a portfolio of companies under the group’s umbrella, this role will support at both the corporate and strategic level and also manage private interests for the family.

Based in prestigious offices in Dubai, the role is a direct 1:1 to the CEO / Chairman but will provide additional support to the executive leadership internationally throughout the Group and be the interface between the Chairman’s office and the group. The EA will ensure the effective management of the Chairman’s diary, prioritizing and using discretion to manage demands and acting as gatekeeper. Responsibilities include preparation of internal and external documentation and liaison with key stakeholders internationally, collating information and strategic reporting across the group, Board presentation and minuting Board Meetings, significant travel organisation and core administrative support that demonstrates excellence and professionalism.


This role is a diverse role, where the EA will be required to significantly juggle responsibilities, hence we are looking for that special all-rounder who can embrace the administrative challenges of supporting a world class office in conjunction with the private aspects of the Principal’s life. This will include managing the private residence as required, ensuring prompt payment of bills and ensuring a full complement of service providers are available and significant personal liaison with the Chairman and family for private travel arrangements and personal adhoc requests.

We are seeking candidates with a minimum of five years’ experience at the most senior C-Suite support level, ideally from a strong business environment (investment banking, venture capital and /or private equity). Candidates will be experienced working globally and a fast paced entrepreneurial rhythm, showing resourcefulness and intuition and possess a native command of English, with fluency in French advantageous.
