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!
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'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 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 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!
As a recent graduate, I was looking for a bilingual assistant position with a company where I could grow over several years. The direct approach and pertinent offers and solutions offered by Dorothy Danahy contributed to the realisation of this objective. I now work as an assistant and really love what I do.
I tell all of my friends looking for the same sort of position to give the Dorothy Danahy consultants a call - a quality service is guaranteed. So don't hesitate to leave your application in their hands...
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!
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.
My sincere thanks to Dorothy Danahy who helped me to quickly find a position that met my requirements. I worked with the agency on two occasions, firstly in 2008 (for a fixed term contract), then in 2010 for a permanent contact, my current position.
The consultants are always professional and reachable and I really appreciated their support during the different recruitment stages. If I had to change jobs, I wouldn't think twice about getting back in touch with Dorothy Danahy, as I know I can always count on their valuable help!
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.
