Employment: Full Time

We are delighted be working with our international investment client as they recruit for an Executive Assistant to join the support team and in part provide assistance to the very busy CEO.

Based in the firm’s prestigious office in Dubai you will independently manage the highly comprehensive travel schedule and diary of the CEO, both from a business and personal perspective ensuring a proactive response to potential logistical problems that may occur well in advance. You will be able to prioritize and use discretion to manage the conflicting demands that the C-Suite Executives have and act as an effective gatekeeper for the CEO. You will provide core administrative support, encompassing, research, presentation work and international event production.

The role includes large amounts of personal support and adhoc project work. Beside personal travel, managing personal shopping requests, asset management, estate management and family financial matters.


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. Flexibility will be required on occasion in regard to working outside of hours, hence candidates should demonstrate humility and adaptability.

This is a senior role, and we are seeking a mature, professional EA with demonstrated experience in supporting at senior managerial / C-Suite level. We are specifically focusing attention on those candidates who have regional experience and stability in the UAE. The successful candidate will have a high degree of integrity and professional discretion with superb time management and organizational ability.
