Why do Career Coaches need insurance?

As a career coach, you are probably helping clients to find themselves the right role. Whatever the case may be, your clients listen to you and take on your professional advice. Unfortunately, someone could misinterpret your advice, causing problems in their career and seek to hold you accountable. 

Career Coaching Insurance includes both Professional Indemnity and Public Liability cover in one policy, and is designed to protect you if something goes wrong while you’re with a client. It includes cover against a wide range of risks that exist in this profession. 

Carelessness or negligence while performing your career coaching duties might lead to serious financial implications. Our policy protects professionals like you from alleged claims such as injury, property damage or professional advice, offering a financial safeguard from litigation. 

Our Career Coaching Insurance can be taken out for just £45.81 a year.  To get an instant online quote simply complete the short quote form on this page. Alternatively, you can call our experienced Sales team on 01494 887909.
