  2. Bespoke E&O cover for staffing operations

    We know recruitment and staffing, and our E&O cover has been designed to pick up the key exposures faced by staffing firms.

    We also include non-standard coverages like breach of contract, vicarious liability of placed personnel, intellectual property coverage and loss mitigation coverage.

  3. Broad appetite

    We can extend cover to include any method of placement (temporary, temp-to-hire, permanent). We also love professional employer organisations (PEOs), and also any associated consulting or professional services provided by the Insured directly, such as accounting or management/ HR consulting.

    Our appetite can also include types of placed personnel, anything from clerical to construction

    See our appetite sheet for more details.
