That acid test for spam or unsolicited mail is whether the sender is 
trying to disguise their identity and the origin of the email or not..  
The recruiter isn't, so that's definitely UCE or UPE.  This is the 
easiest type of spam to deal with as they can either remove you from 
their databases when you ask them to do so, or they can see you in court 
where they will almost certainly lose.
