Recruitment & Selection Policy
We ensure that during our recruitment process, all right to work and reside documentation is complete and in date, with any accompanying identification documents checked and verified.
All of our staff are encouraged to speak out about any behaviour they feel compromises any ethical, moral or legal standing expected in everyday society. Our policy encourages everyone working for us to report any malpractice or illegal acts, including suspicion of modern slavery and human trafficking, or omissions or matters of similar concern by other employees or former employees, contractors, suppliers, partners or advisers using a prescribed reporting procedure.
Staff code of conduct
We are also committed to conducting our businesses ethically and lawfully which includes ensuring, as far as possible, that any third parties who act for us share this commitment. We carefully vet our third party partners to ensure they commit to supporting the anti-slavery legislation. We do this by undertaking appropriate due diligence on existing or prospective third parties based on identifiable risks.
We make sure our suppliers are aware of our policies and adhere to the same standards.
As part of our efforts to monitor and reduce the risk of slavery and human trafficking occuring in our supply chains, we have adopted the following procedure:

We do not consider that we operate in a high-risk environment because our supply chain is based solely in the UK and in a low risk industry.
We do not tolerate slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains. Where there is evidence of failure to comply with our policies and procedures by any of our suppliers, we will require that supplier to remedy the non-compliance or the company will cease trading with that supplier.
