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 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.
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!!
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 !
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.
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!
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.
No longer content with my former job, I signed up with Dorothy Danahy and was called back instantly to come into their Paris offices and meet with one of their consultants. I was immediately made to feel at ease by their lovely and friendly team, and had a long discussion about what I was looking for, as well as their current roles available. In the several weeks that followed, I was called regularly and presented a number of different roles corresponding to my profile, and to my career goals. In my experience of bilingual recruitment companies in Paris, Dorothy Danahy was by far the most reactive, and offered me the widest range of different roles, all of them in highly reputed companies. The consultants also paid close attention to the criteria I was seeking in a position, as I was not seeking an entirely classic assistant role.
Within a few weeks, I was offered a CDI in a fantastic and dynamic Executive Search firm, where I fit in straightaway. Dorothy Danahy even contacted me by post to congratulate me on the role and checked up how things were going after the initial few days. Almost a year on, I am still happy in my role but would definitely recommend Dorothy Danahy to anyone looking for an interesting assistant role in Paris.
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 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.
