Im interested in a job on the market through a recruiter. The recruiter is the one who placed me in my current role 5 years ago. They also are on retainer with my current company, they are the recruiters my company approaches when we have a vacancy to fill.
Im worried that the recruiter will inform my current company i have been enquiring about other roles. The recruiter is after all paid a lot by my current company, it could be in their interests to inform of such events.
Is there a significant risk of the recruiter in this situation?
