Job description / Role

Employment: Full Time

Our UHNW is in the process of centralising his interests under a new a Private Office umbrella. With a core advisory and venture capitalist team in place, we are now seeking an experienced Executive Assistant to join the team. The company has satellite offices, but all staff work remotely. Hence a significant focus of this role is centred upon communication and engagement with both internal and external stakeholders.

The role will provide a full spectrum of senior level and seamless support to the principal predominantly with some outlying team support required on occasion. Travel and diary management is complex, often with short notice and candidates must be resilient to cope with last minute changes. The principal is a highly dynamic figure, who does need to be organised and fully prepared for meetings. This means research and briefing notes need to be meticulously arranged and quite often presentations put together on his behalf. You will be required to attend business meetings with and on his behalf and will have full inbox management responsibility. In the interim, there may a level of personal support required, however as the structure evolves this may move across to another individual.

This is an interesting and diverse role that continues to evolve, and candidates should be able to display initiative and forethought. You should be a highly organised individual, always prepared for the unexpected and always remain one step ahead of the principal. You will be at the forefront of the correspondence with HNWI individuals, investors and entrepreneurs and we are seeking candidates with sound business acumen for this role.


The successful applicant will have extensive UAE experience, of at least five years in a senior EA/PA position from the investment banking/ asset management/ venture capitalist sectors. Although at a new stage of development, our client has a long history here and is providing a great opportunity to be part of a strong UAE growth story.
