The Modern Slavery Act

The Modern Slavery Act 2015 commits each business to publish a statement on their website which sets out their policy in this area. Its aim is to increase transparency and so that it is easily accessible to anyone who wants to see it – the public, consumers, NGOs or investors.

 

Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement for the Financial Year 2018/19

Webrecruit is committed to ensuring that we comply with the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and to eradicating the risk of fostering slavery in our supply chain or in any part of our business.

This statement is made pursuant to Section 54, Part 6 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps the Company has taken to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in our supply chains or in any part of our business.

 

Our Business

Webrecruit is a recruitment company, delivering online advertising solutions, applicant tracking systems and resourcing services to businesses throughout the UK and internationally. Our applicant tracking system has been developed solely in-house.

 

Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking

Respecting human rights and environmental issues in the supply chain is ultimately our supplier’s responsibility. That said, we all have a responsibility to be alert to the risks however small in our business and the wider supply chain. Additionally, as customers we seek to play an active role in supplier development and will be adopting various means to clearly communicate our expectations to our suppliers.

Webrecruit recognises that slavery and forced labour can take many forms, including human trafficking and child labour. We maintain regular contact and relationships with our suppliers, we will review all current suppliers for compliance with the Act and will ask new suppliers to confirm that they are complying with the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

To date we have not been made aware of any human trafficking / slavery activities within the supply chain but if any were highlighted to us then we would act immediately in accordance with our legal and moral obligations.
