Recruitment Insurance

Protect your recruitment business with bespoke insurance policies. Buy online or speak to our experts.

In Partnership with Sonovate

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.
