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!!
If I had to sum up my experience with the Dorothy Danahy agency in 3 words, I would choose the following:
Indeed after a first interview, I was quickly contacted by the Dorothy Danahy team for a permanent position in a management consultancy, and for the past year and a half I have worked as an Assistant for this company.
When actively looking for a new job, you need a consultant who listens to you, understands your expectations and answers any questions you may have.
The Dorothy Danahy team was forthcoming, professional, reactive and attentive. They had faith in me and thanks to them I am lucky enough to have a stable and interesting job.
Thank you again to Clémence, Cyril and the whole of the Dorothy Danahy team.
I really appreciated Dorothy Danahy's professional and pertinent approach, which is essential in matching candidate profiles with client requirements. They enabled me to find a bilingual Executive Assistant position in a large international group, which proved to be very exciting.
I was also very grateful for the warm welcome and service that I received.
A big thank you to the whole team for their efficiency and kindness!
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.
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 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.
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 !
I have now known the Dorothy Danahy team for more than 10 years, and the agency have helped me to find relevant, high-quality jobs on several occasions.
First of all, at Dorothy Danahy, it is the welcome that is impressive. In addition to the traditional tests, it is the interview that really makes the difference. There is an attentiveness and a real desire to truly understand the candidates and their motivations. I told myself Òfinally, people that are really interested in us assistantsÓ and not a millionth recruitment agency recruiting an assistant to make their client happy and understanding nothing.
Then comes the customer service; always the same consultant, we don't have to continually repeat our background, our career, our wishes. And the positions that they propose are a perfect match to our experience and temperament: never a nasty surprise, never any stonewalling.
Top notch professionals who know how to match the right candidate to the right job.
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.
The team at Dorothy Danahy is faultless in their welcoming of candidates and the different staff with whom I had the pleasure of speaking to were always very friendly and extremely efficient.
The appointment I had to register with their agency demonstrated their perfectionism and I felt immediately at ease there.
Regular contact and follow-up during my interviews was testament to their skill and attentiveness: Dorothy Danahy recently found me a position and I am very happy there.
I recommend this company - they will measure up to your expectations.
