We are Dryden Search

A service based on experience,
trust and discretion.

Years of experience

Established in 2019, Dryden Search has quickly established a reputation as a leading r2r for the executive search industry. Our service offering is highly personalised; we do not advertise but use our knowledge and network to proactively search for talent instead of passively matching available candidates. Our screening processes are thorough and we have successfully recruited for some of the most well-known executive search firms and boutiques in the market. This includes hires across Private Equity, HR, Legal, Life Sciences & Healthcare, Finance, Consumer, Tech Leadership, Governance and ESG. We understand recruitment, given we devoted our entire careers to succeeding in this industry before founding the firm.



“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”

"We engaged Dryden Search to help us hire our first Recruitment Director. As a high growth business our recruitment challenge was speed of hire. Dryden Search clearly understood the brief and introduced candidates who brought both internal recruitment experience and sector knowledge. We were provided with insight and guidance at each stage of the process, reached a conclusion beyond our expectations, and I therefore wholeheartedly recommend their service."

Sam Garrity, CEO


“Dryden Search placed me in to my current role at Redgrave nearly a year ago. They were extremely thorough and professional throughout the process, starting from an informative approach email, which definitely stood out. Dan provided me with all necessary information about Redgrave prior to my interviews and immediate feedback following my interviews. I am very happy with my move and would definitely recommend Dryden Search to my colleagues”.

'I was first introduced to Dryden Search through a recommendation by a leading client. I met with both managing partners and was hugely impressed by the extent of the firm’s reach into the market, the quality of their insights and the excellent career advice I received. I was initially reticent to engage in process but the calibre and suitability of opportunities they brought to bear were compelling enough to grab my attention, the support, strategic insights and consideration I experienced throughout, made it an enjoyable and effective journey resulting in me taking my perfect role in a firm with culture tailor-made for my aspirations.'
