I'm new to HR and recruitment process by means of using a recruitment agent. One of them actually sent me a CV which we had received from a different agency. However, that's not a problem, but might serve as an explanation for his following question, which was whether I could submit a list of names of candidates whose CVs we have already received from all agencies we use. I'm not willing to provide the agent with those names as I think that's up to a candidate to reveal whether they are with more than one agency and whatever data we have received so far is confidential. But, can a recruitment agent actually ask for this sort of information? Thank you for any advice

The agent can ask for anything. Doesn't mean that they're allowed to have it.

If you give a list of all candidates to an agency (regardless of the source of those candidates), then you've just given them a wonderful list of warm leads to contact with job opportunities. Ignoring the very essential privacy issue (if I give you my resume, I'm assuming you'll only pass it on to people who need to have it), why should you do the recruiters job for them, with no reward to yourself?

what's your interest
