This statement is and sets out the steps that Smart Co Consulting Ltd. has taken and is continuing to take to ensure that modern slavery or human trafficking is not taking place within our business or supply chain; it is made in accordance with section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

Smart Co Consulting Ltd. has a zero-tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery. Our business is committed to acting ethically and with integrity and transparency in all business dealings and to putting effective systems and controls in place to safeguard against any form of modern slavery taking place within the business or our supply chain.

Our expertise spans across a broad range of industries, including Financial Services, Retail, Manufacturing, Mobile/Telecommunications, Insurance, Oil & Gas, Utilities, Logistics, and Aerospace.

Supply Chain

As a reputable recruitment specialist, all candidates who register with Smart Co Consulting Ltd. are interviewed personally by a member of our Account team and their identification and right to work in the UK documentation is verified by our Business Support team. As an Architecture specialist and to protect the integrity of our processes, we do not sub contract provision of our staffing services.

As workers and prospective employees are directly sourced by Smart Co Consulting Ltd., any supply chain into Smart Co Consulting Ltd. is incidental, e.g. the purchase of office equipment.

We do conduct due diligence on all suppliers before engaging their services, which includes an online search to ensure that the organisation has never been convicted of offences relating to modern slavery.

In addition to the above, we require that they confirm to us that:

  1. They have taken steps to eradicate modern slavery within their business;
  2. They hold their own suppliers to account over modern slavery;
  3. They pay their employees at least the national minimum wage / national living wage (as appropriate);
  4. We may terminate the contract at any time should any instances of modern slavery occur.

We have several internal policies and processes to ensure that we are conducting business in an ethical and transparent manner. These include:

  1. Ethical policy. This policy sets out the organisation’s stance on human rights, workers’ rights, modern slavery.
  2. Recruitment process. We operate a robust recruitment process, including conducting eligibility to work in the UK checks for all employees to safeguard against human trafficking or individuals being forced to work against their will.
  3. Equality and Diversity policy. This sets out Smart Co Consulting Ltd. stance on equal opportunities, and the measures that relate to fair recruitment and selection.
  4. Whistleblowing policy. We operate a whistleblowing policy so that all employees know that they can raise concerns about how colleagues are being treated, or practices within our business or supply chain, without fear of reprisals.
