Gary Chaplin, the “Maverick” Headhunter, On Clients, Candidates and Chemistry

There are no hard or fast rules for headhunters. Most professional recruiters devise their own strategies for finding and matching top talent. This has never been a problem for Gary Chaplin.

Rather, these scouts are individuals with innate matchmaking skills, professionals who have the determination and the right sense to find the perfect fit for a client.
