Dorothy Danahy is a recruitment agency with dedicated personnel who has the candidates' interests at heart. It was with their help that I landed a great job. I have never been disappointed by their welcome or their support. I would warmly recommend this professional team that is led by a lady who has always given the advice needed to move forward.
I just wanted to thank you for everything you've done. I know it's your job, but on top of that you were just great. It's so nice to feel well looked-after, to have an attentive, cheerful person on the lookout for you. Working with Dorothy Danahy has been a very positive experience for me.
It was time for me to give new meaning to my professional life. After several years spent assisting the management team of an SME, I wanted to join a company with international scope. For this, I needed real expertise and astute assistance from a reliable team with a solid network and a true understanding of my requirements. And those of their clients! Dorothy Danahy helped me to accurately identify my ambitions and steered me towards companies that suited my know-how perfectly. Today I work for the Marketing and World Distribution Manager of an insurance and banking group. I'm thrilled.
Being accompanied in your job search is a very delicate task which necessitates good communication, comprehension of candidate priorities and an accurate evaluation of their skills and of course, their expectations!
I observed all of these qualities in each member of the Dorothy Danahy team and for me, this was essential in establishing mutual trust. Thanks to Dorothy Danahy I found the support, advice and encouragement that I needed to take on new professional challenges.
I never actually chose to be an assistant. It was just the way things turned out for me and the natural conclusion to the line of education I chose to follow. I now realise, however, that it really was the perfect job for me because it meant that I got to do what I really enjoy in life; helping people. To be an assistant it is so important to feel a sense of service in your job and to have a very optimistic approach to life. You are constantly under pressure to perform and therefore organisation, flexibility and of course enthusiasm are all essential for the role.
I first met the team at Dorothy Danahy SAS in August 2004 and was rapidly placed in a globally renowned financial group in September 2004 and have been working there for 6 months. I couldn’t believe how quickly things moved for me and it was really thanks to their help and efficiency that I am where I am today!
If I could give one piece of advice to those looking for an Assistant position on the market today, it would have to be to improve your English. The job market is already hard enough as it is, so having English is an invaluable asset in order to get ahead of the game. It is also essential to remember that there will always be obstacles to overcome when it comes to finding and then keeping a job, however they should be viewed as challenges and not dilemmas because there really are no problems, only solutions.
Dorothy Danahy is one of the best agencies I have worked with in Paris, Sydney or London.
The registering process is easy and the staff have a personal, honest and professional approach
I was presented a number of interesting opportunities and secured a fabulous position very quickly.
Dorothy Danahy is simply the best recruitment consultancy in Paris for bilingual Executive Assistants! I found the team highly efficient, professional, very approachable and smart. Not only they were interested in finding out about my requirements and interests but they also took into account my personality to find the ideal position I was after andÉ they also had clearly understood the type of Office Manager/Executive Assistant my employer was seeking for his company. It has been a win for all of us!
I would recommend Dorothy Danahy to candidates AND to employers; they do not simply fill positions they identify the right partnerships.
From the first time I met them, I had an excellent contact with the consultants at Dorothy Danahy. As a young assistant with an unusual profile, they listened and spent time with me in order to understand not only my background, but also my expectations and my personality.
I was immediately convinced by their approach, more centred on the candidate that on the job description. They were able to see beyond my CV and propose positions that truly met my expectations.
I'd like to thank all of the people with whom I was in contact at Dorothy Danahy for their availability, for having taken the time to reassure and encourage me if my application wasn't accepted, but also for their precious advice which helped me to optimise my CV and prepare for interviews.
Today, I regularly recommend Dorothy Danahy to people I know, and I make sure always to mention the quality service I received.
A bilingual assistant for American multinationals, I always gave Dorothy Danahy and her team of "Wonder Women" a call when I wanted to find a new challenge and take the next step in my career.
Candidates are extremely well chosen, the jobs perfectly selected to best suit our professional qualities but also our personalities, all of which allows our bosses to succeed in their work.
The team accompanies me in my career but also in my life, as they never fail to keep in touch or to make sure that I am happy in my job.
Thank you Dorothy Danahy who is the agency to choose and to which I am very proud to belong!
I contacted Dorothy Danahy following a skills assessment that I had wanted to do mid-way through my career which made it clear that I would continue to blossom in assistant roles working for company managers. I was welcomed in an extremely professional manner by a consultant who had an excellent knowledge of Executive Assistant jobs. We spent a long time discussing my past as an assistant and my professional aspirations. In addition to the interview, I was also tested on my IT and language skills.
Already working at the time, I was considering new challenges working for company directors in different sectors, to supplement my professional experience and to discover new professional avenues.
Regularly contacted by Dorothy Danahy for updates on my situation, I one day voiced the fact that I was ready to move to a new position should an opportunity present itself. A few months later I was contacted for an interview with a company situated a few minutes from my house. Having now worked there for almost a year, I can confirm that this role suits me down to the ground and that my skills are put to very good use. I found it easy to settle in to my new team as the role was perfectly matched to my personality.
I think it is rare today to come across such expertise in PA recruitment, and I am delighted to be in contact with the Dorothy Danahy team as I am convinced that I am in safe hands before, during and after the recruitment process, receiving a consistently high-quality service.
