ISP: MIDDLE EAST
Government Relations Officer – Middle East
Amjad is originally from Islamabad, Pakistan. He relocated to the UAE in 2003 to work in the construction industry. After getting married in 2006, he changed career paths and pursued a new career as a Limousine driver in the Dubai International Financial Center. Amjad is passionate about driving and this job enabled him to interact with people from all over the world and provided him with the opportunity to meet and chauffeur celebrities around the UAE. This role also brought him in contact with the International Schools Partnership (ISP) Leadership team from London at the time of our Regional Office setup in Dubai. Amjad’s expert knowledge of UAE roads made him a valuable asset to the ISP team and he very quickly became their designated driver. The ISP team really enjoyed working with Amjad and soon thereafter he was offered a full-time position within the ISP Middle East office as the office driver.
Amjad has always shown the will to shoulder more responsibilities and expand his scope of work. Accordingly, effective from last year, he has become the Government Relations Officer for the Regional Middle East Office with additional responsibilities in The Aquila School in Dubai.
In his spare time, Amjad enjoys hiking in the mountains, horticulture and spending quality time with his wife and four children.
