No labour provided to the Organisation in the pursuance of the provision of its own services is obtained by means of slavery or human trafficking.

 

Supply chains

The main supply chains of the business include sourcing candidates for clients. We expect our suppliers to operate in a legally compliant and ethical  manner  and adhere to the Supplier code of conduct.https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/779660/20190220-Supplier_Code_of_Conduct.pdf
