I've been lucky enough to have been in Dorothy's files for over 20 years!
Dorothy Danahy & her team have successfully settled me into some terrific positions over the years.
The personal touch is very important to Dorothy ; she doesn't find the person to fit the job she finds the job to fit the person. It's not often you come across a team so people orientated.
I'm happy in the position I have ; however should I want to change I know which door I'll be knocking on !
As soon as I entered the Dorothy Danahy offices, I knew I was in safe hands and that a suitable job would be found quickly for me. After completing language and computing tests, I then met with Dorothy, who perused my CV and we discussed my options. She put me forward for positions straight away and it seemed to me that the office had many clients and therefore a large network. This reassured me as I previously had been with another recruitment agency who didn't have many propositions for me.
After I left the office, it wasn't long before I got calls from the various recruitment consultants in the agency. They understood what I was looking for and I soon went on interviews. Two short weeks went by between my initial consultation with Dorothy and the signature of my employment contract - I think that speaks for itself!!
Dorothy Danahy and her team are in my eyes the best recruitment company in Paris.
Not only do they offer to candidates fabulous positions, but they have the gift of making you feel special and unique, they always keep in touch and follow you up.You are considered as an individual and not just a C.V.
Dorothy Danahy has a real feel for people, she and her team really "get to know you" in order to help you really find your dream job!
I've known Dorothy Danahy and her team since 2009. They never let me down even when I was feeling low and unsure of myself, they find the right words to boost my confidence. What more can a candidate possibly wish for!!
Thanks to them I found the position that I always and only dared to wish for.
I'm always very proud to give Dorothy Danahy's name to a future candidate or employer, and touched that I was asked to write a testimonial...
Very good welcome. The consultants, who have a very good knowledge of the current market, are friendly, very professional and provide excellent customer service both before and after each interview. The roles proposed are with good companies and are suited to each candidate's profile.
At this moment in time, it is the only agency that is attentive to candidates and offers tailor-made assistant positions.
I arrived in France in 1983 and after my first few jobs as a classic secretary, I contacted the Dorothy Danahy recruitment agency in the 1990s as I was very interested in their job vacancies for native English speakers.
My first encounter with Dorothy Danahy and her team was very positive and throughout my career, with their help, I have been able to develop my profession as a PA.
When I was recently ill and away from work for 8 months, Dorothy always kept in touch with me, to see how I was getting on and to keep my spirits up: I really appreciated this very kind thought.
I met Dorothy more than 10 years ago: I had come back from England and was looking for an assistant role. I was assisted, listened to and advised at each stage of the recruitment process. I felt supported, which is very important.
I have since held several positions in various large companies and each time I had to change professional course, I contacted Dorothy Danahy. She was always attentive and of sound advice: a professional change isn't always easy but she finds the words to reassure and guide you.
The relationship doesn't end there, Dorothy contacted me to check things were going well once I had started my new job. She was always there when I needed her, throughout my career.
In short, a true relationship of trust has been established over the years!
I have known Dorothy Danahy for more than 10 years. During this time, I have had the pleasure of working with the agency as a candidate but also as a client.
My first experience with Dorothy Danahy was while looking for a position as an Assistant. The agency proposed several opportunities to me and I was quickly recruited.
Their ability to find positions that are perfectly matched to each candidate and the quality of their service are both very impressive.
I have also worked with Dorothy Danahy as a client on several occasions, to conduct recruitments for permanent or cover positions. The respective recruitment processes went well, from the identification of suitable profiles through to the signing of the contract, not forgetting the organisation of interviews.
Dorothy Danahy and all of her team demonstrate true professionalism.
I am delighted to be able to recommend the services of Dorothy Danahy to my contacts. The feedback is always very positive.
I have known Dorothy Danahy for more than 10 years and the contact that I have with all of the team, as with Dorothy Danahy herself, is of an excellent quality, based on a true understanding of my needs and requirements, great professionalism and excellent advice.
In a specialised and demanding environment, we have developed a relationship of trust, respect and collaboration, for which I am very grateful.
Their methods are targeted and adapted to specific market requirements; they keep in touch, their manner warm and personable.
I have no hesitation in recommending Dorothy Danahy for its high-level recruitment.
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.
I am in regular contact with recruitment companies and Dorothy Danahy is the first non-temporary recruitment agency that I have dealt with. The prevailing impression is one of extreme professionalism and a company that enjoys a good reputation with employers. In fact, Dorothy Danahy is by far the recruitment agency that offers me the most interesting positions. I trust the brand's prestige and hope our professional relationship continues.
Dorothy Danahy enabled me to find a very good position in a law firm and to pursue a prestigious vocation that really suits me. Unfortunately things didn't work out for me in this position and I mistakenly assumed that Dorothy Danahy would withdraw their support. I was able to contact the team for assistance and I continued to have their support. I was very touched by that.
Broadly speaking, well done for your kindness, availability and professionalism which earn you such a good reputation. I am truly proud to be represented by you.
