It doesn't really work that way, except in a high-demand market (which we certainly do not have now). Clients specify how much they are willing to pay for the service and the agencies offer what they think they can hire the talent for. This is why you may sometimes see different agency postings that are clearly for the same job with rates that can vary widely.

Where recruiter fees are actually spelled out as percentages is in headhunting for direct-hire positions.
