Unfortunately, some consultants have no regard for compatibility and frequently disregard the confidentiality of candidates' details.
CVs should never be sent without consent. Candidates registering with more than one recruiter should know where their CV is going and who is sending it, bearing in mind that a CV appearing twice on a future employer's desk doesn't improve their chances.
When looking for a job, contact a reliable consultancy with ethical processes and REC membership.
