Ref: NP447-1256

Job description / Role

Employment: Full Time

Our client is privately owned international entity, founded over fifty years ago. The company has over four hundred employees across forty plus offices globally. The vision of the firm is aimed at achieving two basic goals - to place their clients' interests first and to lead their profession in creating value for their clients.

The Executive Assistant acts as a business partner to the consultant in all aspects of client management and support. She will focus on providing support in all project management work being undertaken in addition to all aspects of administration connected with this. The EA will also provide support to business development activities (e.g., arranging lunches, events, conferences, webinars and marketing dinners, etc). This is an involved position with high levels of responsibility where diplomacy and confidentiality are essential. The position is also critical for maintaining the accuracy and integrity of their internal database and is focused on providing support to the Fee Earners in their professional capacity, rather than undertaking any personal work for them.

The role is busy and varied and will manage the day-to-day communications as the main point of contact with internal and external stakeholders and key contacts to enhance the relationships and ensure the effective management of client work, managing the diary of the Fee Earners and preparing client deliverables by producing complex and high-quality documentation and PowerPoint presentations in line with company standards.

AED 15,000 to 17,000 per month inclusive of fixed allowances.


Typically an Executive Assistant within this company is bright, professional, focused on delivery, and produces high quality work. They will be proactive, be involved, a naturally curious, positive outlook and a flexible, helpful, and willing manner. The position has strict deadlines and large volumes of work, so we are seeking someone who can excel under pressure.

We are looking for a native Arabic speaker (both written and oral) with excellent communication skills in English with confidence in both producing client ready documentation and engaging with senior level individuals. Excellent IT and corporate presentation skills (Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint) including touch typing skills are critical.
