Vital Recruitment UK Ltd identifies that Modern Slavery and human trafficking could be a possible risk to our business.
Vital Recruitment UK Ltd (GLA number: VITA0008) are committed to working with all organisations to reduce and remove the threat in the UK.
From when a candidate applies for a position to the end of the workers career with Vital Recruitment UK Ltd we have strict procedures and policies to monitor, detect and determine signs of human trafficking and exploitation
From the stage of registration candidates are required to provide valid ID and “right to work” checks are conducted. All identification is immediately returned to the candidate.
Once ID and application forms are inspected and verified candidates are interviewed face to face to discuss previous work history, expectations and suitable assignments available. At the end of the face-to-face interview candidates are welcomed to Vital Recruitment UK Ltd with an induction that coaches them about Modern Slavery and Employment Rights. The induction explains Modern Slavery is illegal in the UK and what they should do if they suspect they or anyone they know are victims. Every candidate is shown the Stronger Together video, provided literature and contact details for all relevant authorities including the Gangmasters Licensing Authority report a problem telephone number.
During assignments through Vital Recruitment UK Ltd workers are regularly visited on site to check welfare. As well as completing internal audits we are audited independently by Jerry Camp of Alliance HR (who also manages the APL, Association of Labour Providers) Audits include confidential worker interviews and welfare surveys.
We are convinced our company compliance standards and operating procedures reduces the risk of human trafficking and labour exploitation taking place within our supply chain, however if Vital Recruitment UK Ltd should be infiltrated we are able to resolve the case quickly and effectively.
