Executive Assistant

Irwin & Dow

Dubai, UAE

Ref: NP447-1610

Job description / Role

Employment: Full Time

Our client is a private investment group who have enjoyed considerable success globally over the last thirty years. An exciting and challenging opportunity has recently arisen for an Executive Assistant to join the Dubai office and take full responsibility for providing core executive and administrative support to the Chief Investment Officer and his team. The office has a strong core support staff, and you will feel very much part of a team unit.

This role is very diverse, and the right candidate must be able to wear many hats at any one given time so we are looking for that special all-rounder that can embrace the administrative challenges of supporting a world class office of diverse people and programmes. The ideal candidate will be experienced in handing a wide range of administrative tasks and be able to work independently. A self- starter with an immaculate attention to detail and a proven experience of working in an executive environment is a must, as is the ability to work to tight deadlines, multitask and have a positive and flexible approach to the workplace. A good understanding of investment banking, private equity and fund management would be advantageous.


Key responsibilities include extensive diary and travel management across multiple time-zones, drafting letters, managing expense claims and reports, preparing presentations and research briefs, managing industry contracts and subscriptions for the team and documenting minutes. There will also be personal support cover required to other members of the C-Suite team to cover other EA’s during absence.

The candidate will be a flexible and creative team player who is committed to excellence. Strong interpersonal and communication skills are naturally a given and we are also looking for an individual who can display discretion, a proactive nature, and a willingness to learn. We are seeking English language skills to native standard for this position, due to the written demands of the role.
