Job description / Role

Charterhouse is working exclusively with a Diplomatic Mission based in Abu Dhabi, who is looking to hire an Executive Assistant to not only provide EA duties but also assist in the organisation of events.

This role will be quite varied covering a wide variety of administrative tasks which will include but will not be limited to, diary management, drafting and collating correspondence, arranging outside meetings and private functions, travel arrangements, day to day office management and the ability to multi-task several projects. The office is small, but a busy operation which will regularly necessitate you working alone as many of the employees travel extensively, therefore this role will require someone who is a self-starter and is able to think on their feet.


Ideally the successful candidate should be Degree educated, with at least 3-5 years' experience in a similar role as an Executive Assistant. You should have strong IT skills, exceptional written skills and the ability to handle a busy diary with frequent changes. As this role requires extensive contact with senior individuals, it is essential that you are well presented and an excellent communicator with strong interpersonal skills.

If you are looking for a secure, diverse role with a great environment and working hours then we would love to hear from you.
