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.

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 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 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.

Well done!

Gail C.candidate & client

If I had to sum up my experience with the Dorothy Danahy agency in 3 words, I would choose the following:

Professionalism

Efficiency

Approachability

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.

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

Winnie P.candidate

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!

Dorothy Danahy and her team are in my eyes the best recruitment company in Paris.

Not only do they offer to candidates fabulous positions, but they have the gift of making you feel special and unique, they always keep in touch and follow you up.You are considered as an individual and not just a C.V.

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...
