Was the agency guy messing me around? Watch

So I recieved an email from an agency guy and also a text from him stating I would be a good fit for a developer role so I should phone him back.

I phoned him and he wanted to know what my skills were, fair enough so I went it details about it.

He then said "do you have a right to work in the UK" I said "yes" to which he replied "that's always good".

He then told how long do you want the notice, I said 4 days notice and he said with a dead pan voice "4 days is a lot of notice" and I said as soon as possible then.

Then he said he's going to send me an email and he needs a reply in a couple of hours or so and so. Which I thought was pressing it.

He then sent an email with a smiley face saying it was great to talk to me and if I'm happy with everything I should send an email back stating I happy to be represented by the agency and forward my CV to the company.

He's called me twice just now and text he's got some important news on the role.

If he keeps ringing me this is harassment.

I don't see what the problem is, just send your CV then call him back
And if he does not call you once a week to let you know about any jobs you have to call him once a week because most people give up on agencies for the smallest reasons and just because they don't ring them every week

Sounds like typical crappy agency modus operandi. What's a deleloper role? Perhaps you can find a better recruiter.
