Insurance for Recruitment Consultants

Fast, effective and commitment free.

As a Recruitment Consultant you can't predict everything. For when events conspire against you, there's business insurance.

As a Recruitment Consultant, your relationships and reputation are everything. Clients and candidates choose you because of your unrivalled network, your cool negotiating skills and above all, your discretion. So, if anything happens to threaten your hard-won standing in the market, you need to be prepared. That’s where business insurance can help.

Benefits of business cover

We've designed world-class cover for Recruitment Consultants.

Disagreements and disputes

Recruitment involves numerous pitfalls that could lead to a legal claim against you. What if you miss something in a candidate's background check? Or a CV ends up where it shouldn't? If things turn nasty, you could face a lawsuit, with legal costs and compensation to pay. In that situation, Professional Indemnity Cover (PI) will ensure you're protected. Plus, clients may insist you have it – so it could help you win business (or not lose it!)

GDPR ready

As a recruiter, you have access to extremely sensitive client and candidate data, which makes you a prime target for cyber-attacks and data breaches. And with the GDPR now in force, it's more important than ever to ensure it's safe, with fines of up to €20m or 4% of annual turnover for non-compliance. With Cyber Security Insurance, you're protected for a breach of regulations (where insurable by law), your liability for handling data, plus system rectification costs, PR expenses and financial loss due to system downtime.

Commercial legal protection

Keeping track of business and employment legislation can feel like a full-time job. With Commercial Legal Protection, you're not only covered for any legal costs incurred - solicitors, barristers and expert witnesses for example - you'll also have access to day-to-day legal advice and tools. So, if you need help with drafting up a contract, or handling an employment dispute, we're on hand to guide you through.


Whether you're based in a home office, your own premises or a flexible office space, the theft or damage of your property can be stressful and costly. But it doesn't have to be, with our Office Contents and Portable Equipment Cover, which will replace your gear and have you back up and running in no time. And unlike many providers, being based in a co-working space is no problem.
