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.
When I met Dorothy for the first time it was in 1996. I was only a "baby" then as she likes to say...
Fifteen years have passed and when I look back over my career, I realise how precious her help, guidance and support have been to me.
My career couldn't have been what it is without you.
Throughout the recruitment process, it has been a real pleasure working with Dorothy Danahy. Indeed they are extremely efficient in terms of keeping in touch and benevolent when preparing you for interview.
Thanks to their responsiveness, I was able to find a position that fulfilled my requirements quite quickly.
Dorothy Danahy proved themselves to be very obliging and always available which made the process much less painful!
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.
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 have known the Dorothy Danahy agency for many years. There is complete transparence between the recruitment team and their candidates.
Attentiveness and respect for the candidate and their profile are very important points for this company, which is why they never contact you with a position that isn't an exact match to what both you and their client are looking for. This team has always treated me with the highest level of professionalism!
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 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 have recently found a permanent position through Dorothy Danahy.
I have been registered with them for around 2 years.
After the negative outcome of an interview a year ago, Dorothy Danahy proposed other roles to me but I was unable to accept as I was temporarily working abroad. Having said that, on my return to France, I immediately got back in touch with Dorothy Danahy who were delighted to assist me with my job search.
Put simply, DOROTHY DANAHY HAS THE RIGHT SKILLS, APPROACH AND KNOW-HOW.
I recommend that you get in touch with Dorothy Danahy if you are looking for someone to finally recognise your talents.
For over 15 years, Dorothy and her well connected, extremely knowledgeable and professional team have been side by side with me at nearly every important cross-road of my career and the mutual trust has turned every research into a successful job offer. They are simply the best on the market.
