Supply Chain

Our supply chains include, but are not limited to, sourcing candidates for clients. We expect our suppliers and potential suppliers to aim for high ethical standards and to operate in an ethical, legally-compliant and professional manner. We also expect our suppliers to promote similar standards in their own supply.

Supply chain partners include, general office and IT suppliers and any service suppliers to support the running of our business must complete a self-declaration on their modern slavery approach and must agree for an independent audit by the Oliver Bernard Facilities Manager. Our business will not support or deal with any business knowingly involved in exploitation or human trafficking.
