MSA Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement

Introduction

We are Clements Technical Recruitment Limited, t/a Clemtech of 7 Falcon Court, Parklands Business Park, Denmead, Hampshire, PO7 6BZ. References to “we”, “us” and “our” are to Clements Technical Recruitment Limited.

This Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement is made for the financial year ending 1st April 2019 in accordance with section 54, Part 6 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (“MSA”).

Modern slavery is a violation of fundamental human rights and encompasses slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking.

We have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery

Our business structure

We operate within the recruitment sector in the UK and Europe and we act as an employment business. We provide recruitment services to our clients, namely supplying personnel in the Rolling Stock sector.

Our suppliers and contractors are predominantly UK and EU based.

Our policies on slavery and human trafficking

Directors, staff and contractors are obliged to comply with anti-slavery and human trafficking legislation as part of our commitment to ensure legal compliance, with obligations set out in policies and contracts with third parties.  

Training 

Employees receive training on all staff policies which include all matters of conduct and fair employment practices.

Due diligence processes for slavery and human trafficking

We understand that no part of our business is immune to the risk of modern slavery.

We also understand that some of our supply chains and parts of our business have a higher risk of modern slavery taking place.

As a recruitment business, we already have a number of specific processes and systems in place which are either required by law or recommended as best practice, many of which also assist in identifying and minimising the risk of modern slavery. These include:

o         undertaking ID and address checks

o         proof of NI (UK)

o         obtaining references

o         obtaining qualifications

o         checking right to work in the UK

o         verifying payment arrangements

We purchase a wide range of goods and services required in the operation of our business and we also rely heavily on a number of key suppliers for the delivery of our core services.

Whilst we are committed to obtaining and retaining competitive goods and services we will at the same time seek to ensure our suppliers are from sources that have not jeopardised human rights, safety or the environment.

We expect our suppliers to adhere to business principles consistent with our own. We expect them to adopt and implement acceptable safety, environmental, product quality, product stewardship, labour, human rights, social and legal standards.

We conduct internal audits on our recruitment process to ensure that only eligible workers are engaged for agency work
