Permanent PA roles

Your responsibilities as a PA depends on the team, business and industry in which you are working.

Whatever PA job you’re looking for, our expert team of recruitment consultants will work with you to find the perfect position.

Our Dubai office specialises in permanent personal assistant jobs in the UAE and greater MENA region. Our permanent consultants are experts in their field and have comprehensive experience in matching impressive PAs to employers of choice. Find out more about the team here.

Advantages of working in a personal assistant job in Dubai

Advantages of working in a personal assistant job in Dubai

Dubai is one of the best cities in the world to be a personal assistant, as it affords unrivalled opportunities in terms of experience, training and challenges. Dubai’s status as one of the commercial capitals in the world means the roles we recruit for are diverse, dynamic and with some of the world’s best businesses.

Skills needed to be a PA in the UAE

Whilst there are plenty of PA jobs in the UAE, the competition is also fierce so, the more skills or experience you have under your belt, the more chance you have of landing your perfect personal assistant job.

The role of a PA in Dubai has changed dramatically in the past few years. There is less call for those with traditional PA skills and more of a demand for candidates to have all-round capabilities, including excellent organisational and project management skills and a strong knowledge of MS Office systems. In particular, all candidates should be confident in pulling together mail merges in Word; collating expenses and generating charts and tables in Excel and creating presentations or slideshows with custom animation in PowerPoint.

One of the most important skills for those looking to fill a PA vacancy in the UAE is MS Outlook. Successful PA candidates need to be confident in arranging diaries and travel using the diary functions, especially across multiple time zones.

Finally, it is expected that candidates can type at least 50WPM accurately. At Tiger, we are required by our clients to test all candidates and can provide you with your scores.

How much does a PA earn?

A PA’s salary depends completely on the role and industry they are based in. In professional and financial services, a Dubai PA can expect to earn anywhere between 15,000-25,000 AED/month, while an EA in banking can earn 18,000-40,000 AED/month. In other areas of the region, this will change. For example, in Saudi Arabia, an EA can earn anything between 25,000-40,000 AED/month.

In a family office, a PA’s salary can range from 25,000- 30,000 AED/month, while a private PA can expect between 30,000-40,000 AED/month.


Looking for a different type of support role? We help candidates find exceptional private PA jobs in the UAE supporting UHNWI and family offices across the MENA region. Often, becoming a private PA requires fierce attention to detail, the ability to work flexible hours (often working six days/week) and the drive to complete tasks that may seem impossible for their principal.

Along with typical personal assistant tasks, a private PA’s daily tasks are often dependent on the principal they are supporting. It may include organising lavish events, luxurious holidays and travel itineraries, or working with other household staff to support the busy lives of their principal.

Virtual Assistant jobs

Senior PAs who are looking for more flexibility may look for a VA job. This role requires the same organisation, communication and time management skills of a PA, but is completed from the comfort of your home.

Just as a personal assistant job which is based in an office, a VA will usually look after diaries and inboxes, book travel and organise events. They may also work on larger projects, overseeing the entire process.
