Having an office day today I was bombarded within the space of an hour by offers of work at the one same school by three different agencies. 2 of them did not name the school, but the location and remit made it obvious to me. I said to the first "yes, forward my CV, happy to go and see them" and to the second two I said "yes,forward my CV, please be aware that my other agency is probably also on the case". What are the mechanics of this situation? It ought to surely result in some work coming through for me, but how is the decision arrived at as to through which agent? A more general question-given that agencies seem to spend a lot of their time hovering for the same fodder, is it necessarily true that the more agencies you register with, the better options you will end up with?
