Few businesses could survive legal action being brought against them. Having good recruitment agency insurance in place takes the pressure off your business, allowing you to grow freely and without worry.
Qdos can help you arrange the right insurance for your recruiting business whether you are looking for comprehensive insurance that will cover your agency, umbrella company, or payroll provision, or you are looking for a scheme to cover the contract workers you place.
For smaller recruitment firms (with a turnover of up to £2.5 million per annum) who are responsible for the placement of self-employed, temporary or permanent staff, Qdos have developed a range of insurance products available for online purchase via our straightforward quote process.
For larger agencies, umbrella companies, and those providing more complex risks, get in touch with one of our experts.

Recruitment agencies typically need:
Recruitment agencies must also take time to understand their insurance requirements in respect of the workers they place – this is referred to as vicarious liability, and can often become the responsibility of recruitment businesses under contract.
In addition to the policies noted above, recruitment businesses will also need to give consideration to the general business exposures, and consider appropriate insurances for property, contents, motor, and the like.

If a recruitment agency employs any staff, Employers Liability insurance is a legal requirement.
For businesses providing pure recruitment services, it's unlikely that Employers Liability insurance will be required for the workers they place. If the worker is under the supervision, direction and control of the hirer, or is bona fide self-employed, the responsibility for these workers will usually fall to other parties.
There are some circumstances, however, where a recruitment business has a responsibility to insure placed workers under an Employers Liability policy, and any recruitment business should take time to understand their exposure and arrange cover accordingly.
Qdos has specialised in contractor insurance for over two decades, and have worked closely with numerous recruitment agencies and umbrella companies to deliver tailored offerings in this time.
As a subsidiary of Tokio Marine HCC, our unique positioning in the market enables us to provide businesses with a personal and tailored service but with the backing of a global insurer.
