Personal Assistant

Irwin & Dow

Dubai, UAE

Ref: NP447-1212

Job description / Role

Employment: Full Time

Working on behalf of one of our valued UHNW families, we are seeking a Personal Assistant to join their established team and manage the day requirements of the family and concerned individual. This role will of course be privy to highly confidential and sensitive information and you will become an intrinsic part of the family’s life. It is a position of trust and discretion and we are seeking candidates that can demonstrate loyalty and commitment to their previous employers.

Although the role manages the private business and personal interests of the family, it is important that the candidate has had corporate office experience, ideally within a smaller bespoke office environment where they have had a standard reporting and operating structure. They should be able to work with individuals from all backgrounds and manage a wide variety of responsibilities, from personal shopping, diary management, drivers’ schedules, private travel management for the family and adhoc research and project work.


Our client is a creative individual, hence candidates with an interest in interior design, architecture, and property in general will have synergy with the family’s interests. Our client is seeking an adaptable and flexible individual, who understands the scope of a Personal Assistant role and the time demands that can, on occasion, be attributed to it. Attention to detail is paramount and great emphasis is placed on the candidate’s ability to act intuitively, with honesty and integrity always. Those candidates whose profiles can demonstrate support both at a corporate and private level will be considered.

This is a superb opportunity where the successful applicant can develop and become part of a close-knit team, working to the highest service levels.
