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.
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!
The Dorothy Danahy team helped me to find a new job.
I would particularly like to congratulate my Consultant, who was in charge of my file, for the quality of her work and for her attentiveness.
I am very much appreciated her ability to listen and her sense of judgment.
Through her professionalism and understanding of the role, she was able to meet the expectations of both myself and of the client company.
I'd like to thank the whole team for their kindness.
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 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 came across the Dorothy Danahy website when looking for a bilingual assistant position.
Their name often appeared on various job ads that I had seen. So I decided to contact them directly rather than go through their website in order to arrange an appointment.
I was asked to send my CV and was contacted later the same day to schedule a date and time for an interview with them.
Once in their offices, I completed a series of tests. Having determined the type of position I was looking for, they confirmed that my profile corresponded to their vacancies and that I would be contacted shortly and briefed about any suitable jobs.
I generally don't have too much faith in recruitment agencies, as there is often no contact after the well-known scenario of tests and interviews, or if there is contact, it is several months later.
However, Dorothy Danahy kept their word and two days' later they called me with a job brief that was exactly what I was looking for.
I put myself forward for the job, a bilingual Executive Assistant role for a financial services company, a permanent position I have now held for 6 months.
In addition to this, my contact at the agency phoned me several times to make sure things were going well and to answer any questions I had about my new role.
I am extremely satisfied with my experience of working with Dorothy Danahy and wouldn't hesitate to get in touch with them should I be looking for a new job in the future.
A big thank to the whole team.
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.
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.
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.
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.
