Thoughts on working with a recruiter to find a new role?

Not having much luck with direct applications. I’m usually on the fence with them but I’ve heard some people having positive experiences.

Thoughts? 7 YOE (5 yrs consulting + 2 yrs industry)

So I recently accepted a 12 month contract-hire position at a much larger company. Pay is more than 50% of my salary, and benefits/401k is covered by the recruiting agency. I was confident in my now manager, who told me directly this will become a permanent role. However, i’m nervous about where the economy is going to be within the next year, and after getting a few linked in messages to interview for full time positions, I’m starting to second guess myself. Thoughts? Advice?
