Each role was clearly chosen based on the values and culture that reflect who I am as a person and so the thought, time and preparation taken in finding the perfect role for myself was clear. Their help throughout the entire process, from finding the right role, to preparing me for interview through to the acceptance was second to none and so important for any graduate going through this for the first time. It was a pleasure to work with them and the fact we still keep in touch is a reflection on their character.

Associate, Montresor Legal

Having known the team at Dryden for some time, we recently engaged them to assist us with benchmarking our compensation against the market. Their report was tailored, and they had been extremely thoughtful about the firms they had selected as a comparison to ours, ensuring that we able to get a much more realistic overview of what we needed to change, in order to bring compensation inline. It was well worth the time and cost invested in it.
