You are the experts in placement, why not use our experience to place your insurance

Recruitment insurance is there to protect you, your staff, your clients and your property should the need arise. For example, if your recruitment agency places a candidate as an agency worker into a business and that candidate causes an incident your client could make a claim against you. This is where having the right insurance cover in place can help prevent financial loss. We can cater for recruitment agencies big and small and no matter the level of cover you require we have the knowledge to be able to arrange this.
