Provided by Professional Risks

Recruitment Consultants

We’ll take care of your risks as you keep the world of work moving.

Placing the nation’s workforce in the right role doesn’t come without risk and that risk depends on the level at which you are working. But whether it is placing entry level candidates or headhunting the next CEO of a multinational, there is likely to be a professional indemnity risk.

It is becoming common for recruitment consultants to enter into contracts where they accept vicarious liability for the actions of the personnel they place.

To manage these risks, Tokio Marine HCC has developed cover specifically designed for the recruitment sector, covering both professional and vicarious liability.



  • Limits from as low as £100,000 up to £10 million
  • Indemnity provided on an Any one Claim basis with defence costs paid in addition
  • Vicarious Liability cover available
