Recruitment consultants are now considered the riskiest professionals in UK when it comes to getting a good deal on your car insurance.
Online car dealership Vanarama calculated the numbers using the details of the average British driver, a 39-year-old man driving 7,600 miles a year in a one-year-old VW Golf 1.5l car.
They found that the bonus for people working in recruiting had more than doubled from almost £ 350 to over £ 815 in the past year, taking it from 30th to first on its list.

Health workers get the worst contract, as the only sector with an average figure above £ 500 a year.
Health workers are charged almost £ 160 more for 2021 insurance compared to last year.
In terms of rankings, however, it was the designers who suffered the most cost increases. Despite having the third most affordable bounties in last year’s results, the 2021 update sees them slide to second place with a charge of almost £ 780 per year.
Andy Alderson, general manager of Vanarama, says small changes in your driver details can help reduce premium hikes.
“Consider adding or removing named pilots and assessing the effect that has on cost,” he advises.
“Make sure you don’t overestimate your annual mileage. And, it can be difficult to find an exact occupation match on comparison sites – try grabbing alternatives that still fit your role but offer cheaper bonuses.
