If this did come from an agency you should consider reporting them. Is there somewhere an agency can be reported to?

Do you know if this is pure spam or if there is a real job behind it?

It certainly seems to be pure spam.

Reads to me like a real "dream" job designed to gain the maximum amount of CV's for other less great jobs. Did that make sense?

Have you considered reporting whoever sent this to you to the REC?

If I reported all the agencies and their employees who have broken the REC rules over the last year or so (that is just what I have noted)  I would not do much else each day.  I suspect they all rely on this!  How about the REC investigating all agencies as and ongoing process?

Lets face it even if you did report it how long would it be before anything was done (if anything!).  Then it would be a slap on the wrists, don't do it again, human error etc etc.

I have made a complaint to the ICO about data protection breach.  It took a year for them to investigate it.  They found the rules had been breached.  No fines were issued, no publication of the company involved.  All that happend was they were told to improve and revise their procedures.  Meantime I spent hours sending them copies of letters and e mails and chasing them up.

This is probably true...about the amount of complaints the REC must get that is.

They KNOW that the REC wont do anything anyway.

Most candidiates are trying to get a job first and formost. 

If I complained about EVERY agancy that breaks the rules and guidlines it would be my full-time job!

It seems a great job for you would be to work for the REC. You could be in the "internal affairs" division agencies would hate to see you coming.
