IT Recruiters: How to Find General Liability Insurance for Your Prospects

If you work as an IT recruiter, headhunter, or staffing professional with a focus on technology jobs, you’ve probably encountered the problem of finding General Liability Insurance for the contractors you place.

Finding coverage at the last minute can be stressful, especially when a client is eager for a candidate to start. But it doesn’t have to be. In addition to working directly with small technology businesses, TechInsurance also has a program for helping IT recruiters find coverage for the contractors, 1099 employees, and corps-to-corps workers they’re trying to place.

Thanks to our experience doing just this (we’ve been getting coverage for IT businesses since 1997), we can often find General Liability Insurance for your technology contractors in as little as 24 hours.

The program works like this: you talk with our in-house relationship manager about how we can make it easier for your candidates to secure General Liability Insurance quickly.

Depending on how many people you place, she might help you set up a page dedicated to your placement firm. She can make a tailored landing page that has specific coverage limits pre-identified so your candidates can quickly start and complete an application.

One of the nicest things about our recruiter program is that you can establish coverage limits for multiple insurance policies, including…

This makes it easy to get coverage to a lot of candidates without duplicating your work.

(We also offer a few less-common policies, including Fidelity Bonds. We’re happy to offer more details if you want them – feel free to reach out!)

How Fast Can We Find General Liability Insurance for IT Professionals?

As we mentioned, we’ve been in this game since 1997, so we’ve got the process of finding General Liability Insurance (and other policies) for IT professionals down to a science. Our online application takes about 15 to 20 minutes to complete, and once your candidate has submitted the application, our agents can often have a policy started in 24 hours.

Of course, those times are somewhat slower on the weekends, when insurance carriers aren’t open, but during the week, a 24-hour turnaround is common for our IT customers. So don’t fret: you really may be able to get your candidate covered as quickly as the client wants them to start working.

How Much Can IT Professionals Expect to Pay for General Liability Insurance?

As with all insurance, cost varies depending on the specifics of the IT contractor’s work, experience, and history. But generally, our customers pay between $500 and $900 per year for Commercial General Liability policies. Often, those premiums can be broken into installments to fit better into your prospects’ budgets.
