Why do Recruitment Consultants need it?

Select your preferred policy and you’ll be covered instantly, so you can continue running your business without any worries.

Did you Know?

A claim of negligence due to failing to complete the appropriate background checks, and representing an ill-suited candidate who is subsequently employed by a company, could arise many years after the actual recruitment process. For example, a recruitment consultant who failed to perform a criminal history check on a candidate could face a claim if the candidate had a criminal record and later misappropriated funds from the hiring company.

Get the cover that’s right for your Recruitment Agency business

Professional Indemnity*

Employees are the most important and valuable asset to any business. Which is why finding the right ones is essential but often hard to do. That’s why your clients come to you.

You are held to high expectations to provide a specialist service, and in the case you do not meet these expectations or your client feels that you have not met them, you may have legal action taken against you.  And your reputation will be on the line too.

Thankfully, Professional Indemnity insurance is your protection against your legal liability arising out of acts, errors and omissions during the course of your work. It covers your legal and defence costs, court costs, compensation awarded to your client, and PR costs.

Public Liability Insurance*

Public Liability insurance is an easy choice for recruitment consultancy services. It is designed to provide protection for you and your business in the event a client, supplier or a member of the public is injured or sustains property damage as a result of your negligent business activities.

Working closely with your clients, either at your office or on location, means you could cause mishaps and accidents – think a client tripping over at your premises, or you damage your client’s property.

Business Insurance*

Your clients bring in your income, but where would you be without your business assets? Without the right cover, you could be hit with a few unwanted challenges that could leave you reaching deep into your pockets. Consider cover for your contents, stock and premises to protect against fire, storm, theft, vandalism and accidental damage.

Business Interruption cover will ensure you get back on your feet in no time if your business is out of action due to an insurable event.

Cyber Liability*

Consider the client and candidate data you are storing and the consequences if it were to be compromised. Protect your business against the expense and legal costs associated if your network is hacked and your client’s or candidate’s sensitive information is stolen.


*As with any insurance, cover will be subject to the terms, conditions and exclusions contained in the policy wording. The information contained on this web page is general only and should not be relied upon as advice.
