"Intellectually challenging work - I find it stimulating and rarely feel bored."
Dale Robertson, EC Liaison Manager

"A cliché I know, but the people - the nicest working environment I've had. Also, the security, offices and coffee."
Paul Maurice, Senior Communications Officer

"The fact that after so many years at DANTE I am still not bored as every day presents a new challenge."

Janos Mohacsi (ex-DANTE staff)

Nicolas Simar (ex-DANTE staff)
"When I worked there (1995-1997), DANTE was still quite small (if memory serves, fewer than 20 employees). There was a very cordial and informal atmosphere. On Friday afternoon, we would head off to the Panton Arms for a pint (or two, or three)."
Steven Bakker, (ex-DANTE staff)
"Interacting with people around the world. Making a difference by connecting the unconnected."
