Job description / Role
This role represents an excellent opportunity for a professional Personal Assistant to join a prominent company with focus on the banking and finance sector. The role is pivotal in ensuring the smooth running of the CEO’s office in the corporate space, as well as providing private household management and personal travel support to the CEO’s family.
The role will support the CEO in all areas of the business and oversee the smooth running of the office. The role is highly energetic and we are seeking a proactive and motivated individual who is able to manage complex workloads, travel itineraries and remain effective under pressure. With exceptional English verbal and written and communication skills, coupled with a confident and diplomatic approach, you will be the liaison between clients and the CEO and maintain strong relationships with executives and staff in the region and on a global level. The CEO travels extensively and much of the work is remote support as he spends little time in the office. There is also considerable private support as you will assist with maintaining his properties, paying bills, arranging complex family travel itineraries and managing household staff.
The role will also encompass detailed document production and some presentation work on MS PowerPoint. Hence, candidates must possess advanced knowledge of MS Office and excellent English grammar and attention to detail. Skill set, followed by cultural fit are the two most important criteria for this role as well as professionalism, open communication and strong team playing ability. Only those candidates who have demonstrated at least three years’ UAE experience and job stability will be considered for this position. This is a demanding role, where candidates will be expected to provide 24/7 support when required to this incredibly busy CEO.
Our client does offer great stability factor; a professional working atmosphere in the heart of the DIFC, strong team support and an attractive bonus.
