Credit insurance guarantees a lender will be repaid if a borrower is unable to pay his or her debt due to, for example, death or disability.

Why does a recruitment consultant need Professional Indemnity Insurance?

Mistakes happen, and when they do your client will try and find ways of limiting the financial impact on themselves.

For example, if you misrepresent a person or a job, a claim could arise for the financial loss which arises from wages being paid to someone unsuitable for the role in the first place.

Certain roles are more high-risk than others, for example care related professions, and the impact of a person being wrongly placed in a working environment can be diasterous. You could also face a big bill when your client asks you to cover the costs or mistakes and any related expenses for replacing the candidate. 

Professional Indemnity Insurance pays for a specialist legal team to fight your corner. It also pays any compensation awarded to your client.
