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.

Dorothy Danahy has a real feel for people, she and her team really "get to know you" in order to help you really find your dream job!

I've known Dorothy Danahy and her team since 2009. They never let me down even when I was feeling low and unsure of myself, they find the right words to boost my confidence. What more can a candidate possibly wish for!!

Thanks to them I found the position that I always and only dared to wish for.

I'm always very proud to give Dorothy Danahy's name to a future candidate or employer, and touched that I was asked to write a testimonial...

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.

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.

Vanessa L.candidate

A bilingual assistant for American multinationals, I always gave Dorothy Danahy and her team of "Wonder Women" a call when I wanted to find a new challenge and take the next step in my career.

Candidates are extremely well chosen, the jobs perfectly selected to best suit our professional qualities but also our personalities, all of which allows our bosses to succeed in their work.

The team accompanies me in my career but also in my life, as they never fail to keep in touch or to make sure that I am happy in my job.

Thank you Dorothy Danahy who is the agency to choose and to which I am very proud to belong!

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!!

Charlotte C.candidate & client

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 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.

Patricia J.candidate

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.
