House & Global Asset Manager – Dubai

$55K to $80K

 

We have an opening for a House and Global Asset Manager.

The role will require  overview and management of  2 villas (next to each other) in which the family are currently living.

Responsibilities will be wide-ranging and  include anything and everything related to these premises, such as: staff, service standards, training, project management, inventory control, household budgets, petty cash and expenses.

Candidates will also be responsible for the other staff members located at other locations, example: the yacht and secondary properties owned by family, including an apartment in the UK.

The client's villas are currently under development so the candidate will be required to oversee and co-ordinate contractors, whether for existing services, products or supervision and inspection of maintenance work. 

Candidates will also be involved in organizing special events, and will manage and coordinate the travel arrangements for the family along with making any necessary  bookings required upon arrival to the destination

There may also be the requirement to chaperone the children or female family members on the odd quick trip inside or outside of The UAE hence someone with understanding of the rules of safety/security would be an advantage.

It is imagined that the ideal candidate will be well travelled themselves.
