    Pros

    Legatum is a unique company which sets it apart from any other I have worked for in Dubai. It is refreshing also that it follows high standards in line with those you experience and expect from a Western organisation.

    Legatum focuses on its mission which brings the team together along with strong values that are carried throughout every aspect of the business.

    The culture of Legatum makes it a great place to work, the team is full of genuine, down to earth people and the autonomous attitude means as an individual you have the opportunity to learn and grow both as a person but also in your skills.

    Employees are given the chance to get involved in the Philanthropic side of the business which brings a new dimension to your work and personal life.

    It is a hard working environment with high expectations but the company reward you and look after you providing beautiful offices, stunning café along with free lunch, afternoon teas and snacks.

    Cons

    Whilst you can grow and extend the responsibilities within your role, due to being a small office depending on your role there can be a limit to how far you can progress beyond that role.

    Team Assistant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Legatum (London, England) in August 2018.

    Interview

    Following the first call with the agency I progressed to an online interview with two individuals from Legatum. The technology worked well and connection was good. It was a very "soft interview" with more emphasis placed on a personality fit rather than experience.

    Interview Questions

    • One particular question was to ask my opinion on the service attitude required for a good assistant.   1 Answer
