  • Sorting visas at the last minute
  • Finding different quotes for private jets and yachts
  • Booking jets, yachts, cars, helicopters

Candidates must:

  • Be incredibly flexible in their approach to work and time
  • Have supported a demanding UHNW before  
  • Be unphased by pace
  • Have experience juggling intensely complex travel plans
  • Have a thick skin and resilient nature
  • Be able to work autonomously

A Russian speaker would be absolutely ideal but not a must!
