Our Client is a recognised International Arabic Celebrity who is need of an highly effective personal executive assistant.

Based in a modern developed area of Cairo our client travels frequently and therefore the job will entail many logistical challenges, requiring a candidate of the highest calibre, who enjoys finding solutions to the most difficult challenges.

The personal assistant will organise the lady’s social and personal diary, organise events, small parties and will be her eyes and ears helping to manage her homes and her staffing, often delegating responsibilities and checking that tasks been made carried out.

Single or shared accommodation, depending on what the candidates request. It would be no bother, I asked about a car and it was said that it would not be necessary, however, this might also be organised, although the lady has many drivers.

We see the candidate being an enthusiastic and confident member of this household, However, a great deal of computer work is necessary, so secretarial PA skills are essential, with an ability to work towards goals, set objective and identify duties.

We see a candidate who is efficient, has discretion, is flexible, tenacious, assertive, diplomatic, self starter, self-motivated, organised, proactive and a great communicator.

There needs to be good IT literacy with advanced-level skills in Word for Windows occasionally PowerPoint and an intermediate level knowledge of Microsoft Excel for Budgeting and finance aspects.

Additionally involvement with particular charities.
