Protection against allegations of negligence

Working in a recruitment consultancy, you’ll know all about your complex regulatory environment. Without adequate insurance, you could be exposed to high financial penalties following an allegation of negligence.

Make sure your recruitment business has the confidence and resilience you need to succeed and grow by securing a package of insurance which meets your own needs. With a recruitment agency insurance package, you'll receive no more and no less cover than you need, all under one umbrella and with one renewal date.

We are specialists in arranging insurance for recruitment agencies and consultancies, already helping to protect thousands of sole traders, self-employed consultants, freelancers and limited companies. Our recruitment insurance can be tailored to cover a wide range of workers including employed, self-employed, PAYE and zero-hour temps, as well as limited-company contractors.

Choose the insurance you need

Our recruitment agency insurance is bespoke: you choose the covers and limits you require, on a UK, European or worldwide basis. We’ll put together a package which meets your particular needs, which could include any or all of the following covers, and more:

Employers', public and/or products liability insurance; professional indemnity insurance; buildings and contents insurance; cyber insurance; fidelity bonding; driver negligence insurance; legal expenses cover; personal accident insurance; directors’ and officers’ liability cover; and the supply of personnel for contracts outside of your standard terms (imposed upon your agency by end clients and master vendors).
