Job Details

This is a challenging and rewarding role at the heart of the Embassies’ external-facing activity as a member of the UAE Central Events, Residence and Engagement Team (joint FCDO and Department for Business and Trade - DBT). It requires flexibility and creativity to deliver events with diverse themes, varying from small discussion events and official entertainment over a meal, to large-scale outdoor events which may have several hundred guests.

The role requires excellent organisational skills and the ability to work effectively with a wide range of stakeholders inside and outside the Embassy to achieve highly professional and efficient delivery of events and a positive experience for all guests, who may include very senior guests from the UK and the UAE.

The successful candidate(s) will ideally have prior experience in events management and business hospitality. They will also need effective line management skills and attention to detail in order to assure a high-quality service in the Residence(s).

Due to the nature of the role, the jobholder will be required to be flexible in their approach to hours worked as these will be dictated by operational needs and will involve frequently working out of hours (evening and/ or weekends) during events and ministerial visits.
