I am a recent graduate looking for work and a 3rd party recruiter has contacted me back about position A at a company. Over the phone they said they would put forward my application to the company but I haven't heard from them in over a week (I realise this is not a lot of time). I have had no email exchanges with them following the call either. I am also working with another recruiter at the same organisation for separate roles, who tried to follow up with said recruiter about my position but did not get a response.
Today, through browsing the company site out of interest, I notice a different position at the same company that I felt I could also be a good fit for. Naively, I assumed it would not be an issue to apply to this position directly though I am now finding out this could cause confusion between the company and the recruiter. I did not intend to deceive though I realise this would not matter legally. Would this be a problem and if so, what would be the best cause of action?
I now know that next time I should contact the recruiter about this position as well but is there any way to remedy the situation? I am also in the UK if that is relevant.
Thanks in advance!
