A note from Dominic Danos, Global Managing Partner

I started Danos Associates 14 years ago and am extremely proud of the company we are today; we are market leaders, have offices in four locations across the globe, service an elite client base, hold an unparalleled network of candidates and have a truly exceptional team. Not only is everyone passionate, driven and great at what they do but they’re genuinely nice people to be around.

Although our success means we’re growing all the time, we will never be a volume-based, number crunching agency. We are specialists in our field and have the most respected recruiters in the industry who new starters can work closely with and learn from. I am committed to maintaining our culture which is supportive, professional yet fun, full of opportunity and allows every voice to be heard.

The future looks very bright for Danos Associates and I’m excited to welcome new people into our team to be part of our continued growth and success by delivering for our candidates and clients.
