We are Dryden Search

A service based on experience,

With over 30 years combined experience, we have established and built recruitment teams in London, New York, the Middle East and Europe. We understand recruitment given we have devoted our entire careers to succeeding in this industry. We do not advertise but use our knowledge and network to proactively search for talent as opposed to passively matching available candidates. We provide a highly personalized service and are able to streamline your recruitment process by fully assessing individuals when we interview them.



“I have worked with Dan Flynn for many years and I’ve always been impressed with the thoroughness he brings to his work. He takes time to understand exactly what a client is looking for and invests in assessing candidates to ensure the fit is absolutely right for both parties. I’ve always felt that this approach of never cutting corners makes Dan stand out from the crowd and I look forward to being a client of Dryden’s for many years to come”

’I’ve known Dan Close for several years and he provides a detailed, thorough and comprehensive approach to his work. His ability to provide honest advice and insight is truly valuable and he works diligently to offer the best possible service. His work is always appreciated and the service is delivered with efficiency and integrity.’'

"Daniel is an excellent recruiter with a wealth of knowledge of the industry. His own experience of successfully leading and developing teams gives him a great understanding of what skills, qualities and potential a hiring team are looking for in senior recruiters, managers as well as more junior candidates. Daniel is able to match candidate’s personalities and goals with the right company culture helping to forge long term working relationships."

“From personal experience, having worked with both Dans, I would advocate that they provide a highly personalized service compared to many other R2R’s in the market. They are selective in who they approach, provide impartial insight into the market and take a genuine interest in your long-term career plan.”

“I worked with Dryden Search to gain further insight into the recruitment market internationally. They provided detailed insight and objective opinion on the difficulties with sourcing good talent as well as the costs involved in hiring overseas. I would certainly recommend speaking to them.”
