    If you upset the end client I can assure you few will place the next candidate with you as you just blocked their preferred choice! They will just go to someone else on their PSL & both agencies will have to accept that & also both will be unlikely to get repeat business from the end client.....

      From about 2010. I started taking a very hard line with agents as I was getting majorly annoyed with the way they do business.
      Agent would ring up: "I have this fantastic contract"
      Me: "Who is the client?"
      Agent: "I cant tell you that at this point"
      Me: "If you cannot tell me who the client is, firstly I cannot give you a rate as these are client dependent and b) any discussion could effect other commercial arrangements. I will have to terminate the call"
      50% of the time this would actually work.
      To be fair I was already plotting my exit from IT and was quite happy playing hardball with the agents.

        I might be missing something here, but nowhere in the original post was it mentioned that the OP agreed to be exclusively represented by Recruiter A.
        Usually that's something I have always had to send through when being put forward for a role.

        If that wasnt the case (it may or may not be), then its fair game no? If the client prefers Recruiter B, there is nothing stopping them going via Recruiter B. You may burn bridges with A but you could turn it around and say its the clients choice.

          Makes no difference when it comes to the rather predictable bun fight I am afraid.

            also misses the point that the client/agency contract will have a clause about the client only being able to get the contractor from the agency who supplied the CV. So that kills the opportunity completely in my mind unless one agency is willing to back down and lose their commission.

              I don't think you did anything wrong by getting accidently placed at same role by 2 recruiters, it happens.

              B got you that interview though not A, not that it matters it's not really up to you to decide who gets to place you. That's really between the agencies and the client. Just stay out of it.

              I would question how strong your relationship with A really is.. B obviously sold you to the client when A wasn't able to.
