Relevant flying experience

Could anyone clarify if airline recruiters take all flying experience into consideration? I have a fair few hours in other powered forms of flight as well as the required minimums for a CPL A.

Of course, but they can only consider it if they know about it. If you have something on your CV that the interviewer is interested in as well, I'd say that was a good thing - whether it's microlighting or gardening.

In my very limited personal experience the recruiters weren't really interested (they didn't look at anything other than my fixed-wing logbook/licence). The rest was just something to talk about in general terms at the interview when they ask the soft opening question along the lines of "tell us about your flying experience / training / what you have been doing with your life up to now."

Helicopter experience might be considered relevant - can't really comment on that.
