Modern Slavery Act 2015: Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement

Organisation’s structure

As an international STEM specialist recruitment group, we are committed to combating slavery and human trafficking. The Group strives to ensure that appropriate supplier checks based around governance and financial standing are always undertaken, and considers these adequate to protect against slavery and human trafficking within the Group’s supply chain. This helps to ensure, as far as possible, that no element of the supply chain contrives human rights issues. As such, we believe that there are no such issues known to be impacting the Group’s business, based on both global and localised legislation and the Directors do not consider there to be a risk of slavery or human trafficking taking place within its supplier base.

Our Supply Chains

Our supply chains include management companies, job boards, property, media, IT equipment, stationery and print suppliers, whilst our clients include international STEM businesses.

Our Policies on Slavery and Human Trafficking

We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business, whilst also acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships. To do this we have implemented and enforce a number of effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking are not taking place anywhere in our
supply chains.

Due Diligence Processes for Slavery and Human Trafficking

As part of our controls to identify and mitigate risks, we have in place processes and procedures to:

  • Identify and assess potential risk areas in our supply chains;
  • Mitigate risks, including slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains;
  • Continually monitor risk areas in our supply chains; and
  • Protect whistleblowers, via a confidential and independent reporting process.

This statement is made pursuant to Section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement for 2022.
