We are Dryden Search

Executive Search

We partner with Executive Search firms on Researcher to Partner level hires.

At Dryden, we believe our ability to understand the different skill sets needed to be effective in research, delivery, and revenue-generating positions sets us apart. 


Whilst our personal networks are extensive, we invest in our research capability to ensure our market maps and CRM are continuously updated in real time. To deliver the very best possible service, we will only work on a select number of engagements at any one time.  



“We have worked with Dryden on a number of searches over the last couple of years and have always been impressed by their market knowledge, their candour and their ability to really understand the brief and what matters to us.."

"I have known Daniel for a very long time and have used him and Dryden for recruitment, advice and general discussions about the search industry. His integrity, focus on results and international network of talent put him a level above other firms in his space. We have used him recently for roles across the UK, Germany and the US and all have resulted in people who have been enormous successes. I would not hesitate in recommending him and his company."

“Dryden Search were recommended to me, and I can see why. They have been excellent throughout the process, working hard to understand the brief, challenging it in the right way, adding insight and expertise and supporting every stage of the appointment. We were very happy to retain them and we look forward to developing our partnership in the future.”

Managing Director, Eden Search

Dryden Search placed me in to my current role at Redgrave. 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.

"Oliver placed me into my current role at True Search. His handling of the process was very professional and attentive from beginning to end. He equipped me with everything that I needed, managed my expectations really well and essentially acted as my representative in direct engagements with True. I would definitely recommend Oliver and the wider team at Dryden Search to friends and colleagues.''

Dan Petcu

Senior Associate, True Search

Dryden Search placed me into my current role at Campbell Reed. I worked closely with Daniel who took the time to understand my situation, what I was looking for and why. He always remained transparent and available every step of the interview process to answer any questions I had, share feedback, and ultimately support me in getting an offer I was very happy with. Daniel and the Dryden Search team had a very personal and professional approach, and I’d happily recommend them to my peers, whether they are looking for their next career step or hiring themselves."

Connor O'Brien

“Dryden Search has been by far the best recruitment support I have had. Dan was able to thoroughly understand what I was looking for in a career move and secured me a job with a firm that aligned with me across all measures. The process was seamless from presentation of the opportunity, to interviews, feedbacks and ultimately negotiating my idea salary. Dryden are professional and extremely personal in their approach, I would have no hesitations in recommending them."
