In addition to the high quality insurance products we offer, we are able to provide assistance in areas such as detailed client and host employer contract reviews as well as risk management reviews. The contract review service has proved very beneficial for many agencies and is a valuable part of our broking services. These reviews have led to many client and host employers amending their contracts and has successfully created a greater degree of certainty for the agency.

The sorts of cover required by the recruitment industry

The core insurance policies that are most valuable in a recruitment insurance solution are:

  • Public Liability – This insurance policy is vital for all agencies, but especially so for those who on-hire employees or contractors. Many standard public liability policies will not provide cover for an agency’s on-hired workers, therefore you must be careful in choosing an insurance solution and preferably use one that has been developed specifically for the recruitment industry.
  • Professional Indemnity Insurance – Many standard professional indemnity polices will not provide cover for an agency’s on-hired employees or contractors or will restrict the occupations that are covered.
  • Management Liability Insurance– Management liability insurance protects the company, the individual directors and its officers who undertake these vital roles within the business, insuring them against claims that may arise from within or external to the company.
  • Worker’s Compensation Insurance– depending on your State, this is vital cover. Claims are common and rarely simple.
  • Business Package Insurance – this policy provides cover for risks including Business Interruption, property damage due to fire, perils or accidents and general property protection.
  • Cyber Insurance
