Job offer




Maison Privee, a 'virtual hotel', offers private residential properties as an alternative to traditional hotels, delivered through the effective management of individual properties on behalf of independent owners. A high growth start-up, Maison Privee has recently secured Series A funding of USD$4m and is well placed to take a leading position in the short-stay accommodation market in Dubai.

They help property owners earn increased revenue from their properties by enabling them to capitalise on the strong demand for corporate and tourist accommodation in Dubai. They also rent properties directly from owners for the purpose of subletting them to their guests on a short stay basis. It’s simple and stress-free, with a focus on customer service. For their Guests, Maison Privee focuses on the management and provision of high standards of accommodation by handpicking each and every property to come under their portfolio.


They’re looking for a bright and charismatic Property Acquisition Manager to help grow their property portfolio. You will be responsible for growth through supply acquisition in Dubai initially and further afield as they grow. You will identify suitable homes to either rent on behalf of Maison Privee or manage on behalf of the owner. You’ll market to potential clients, close deals and build rapport with each newly accepted homeowner or property manager. You will ensure the standards of their portfolio are high and consistent as well month on month. You will work on bringing on new supply and through effective pricing and homeowner expectation management, ensure these homes reach their full commercial potential by achieving the desired occupancy level.


You will be an integral part of their Property Acquisition team bringing on new supply through research, lead development, negotiation and contract closure. While largely an inside sales role, we will ensure that you get rounded experience and the opportunity to grow. This role will draw on strong business development skills and mark you as a catalyst in the growth of Maison Privee.
