Modern Slavery Statement

SThree plc and its subsidiaries (“the Company or SThree”), an international specialist STEM specialist staffing group is committed to improving our practices to combat slavery and human trafficking.

The Company is committed to continuously improving its supply chain due diligence procedures, including appropriate checks to prevent and protect against slavery and human trafficking.

Our Supply Chain

Our supply chain includes independent contractors, management companies, job boards, property, media, IT infrastructure, software and equipment providers, whilst our clients include international STEM businesses.

Our policies on slavery and human trafficking

We have appropriate policies in place that underpin our commitment to zero tolerance of modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chain or in any part of our business. We regularly review and update all our policies. These include our Code of Conduct, Procurement policy, and Speak Up policy.

Due Diligence

We have in place processes and procedures to identify, assess, mitigate, and monitor potential risk areas in our supply chain, including slavery and human trafficking risks.

In financial year 21/22 we reviewed and updated our procurement policy to better reflect our commitment to responsible sourcing, acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships.

We also introduced a supplier code of conduct which includes requirements to combat modern slavery and human trafficking.

We have made training available to our staff to help them better understand the risk of modern slavery and human trafficking.

Further steps

We will continue to review the effectiveness of the steps we have taken to ensure that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chain.

  • This year, we will introduce further improvements to our third-party due diligence processes. These processes will help ensure we have a more effective approach to identify and monitor any potential risk of modern slavery and human trafficking taking place anywhere in our supply chain.
