Job description / Role

Employment: Full Time

This position requires a candidate with exceptional English skills and presentation. You will provide support to the office regarding all incoming visitors, internal meetings, general queries, and business continuity.

The role is the first point of point of contact for all telephone calls and visitors, many of which will be high net worth individual clients, senior government officials and leading international business leaders. It is therefore essential that you are well presented and accustomed to handling people at all levels of seniority. It is also expected that you will manage the conference room and private offices, ensuring they are prepared with refreshments and equipment in advance. You will take charge of confidential document collation, couriers, stationery and pantry supplies and ensure extremely high standards of housekeeping within the reception area and overall office. As you will provide support to the Executive Assistant with any additional administrative work you should possess strong MS office skills including Excel and PowerPoint and have experience in travel management.


To be successful in this role you should have a minimum of 2 years’ experience in a similar role with excellent customer service background. The correct work ethic, personality and overall attitude is very important to our client. You will be an individual with a positive outlook and high energy. This is a complex and self-motivated environment, so candidates need to be able to work quickly, autonomously, and professionally.

Corporate appearance and immaculate presentation are also key in representing this DIFC client.
