Recruiters appreciate honest communication! It’s fine to be working with multiple agencies during your job search and be actively submitted your CV to prospective employers independently but it’s better to let us know to make sure there is no duplication.
You don’t have to give us masses of detail – just a call or email to say where your CV is going.
Recruiters worth their salt never send unsolicited CVs and we will always contact you for permission before sending your CV to a prospective employer.
To ensure we can represent you properly and be confident of selling your skills and experience to our clients we always try and see you face to face and at least, conduct a thorough phone interview.
So keep it simple, keep it honest and keep the communication lines open.
