Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
URecruit Ltd recognises that all businesses have an obligation to prevent slavery and human trafficking and will do all in its power to prevent slavery and human trafficking within its business and within the supply chains through which it operates.
Modern slavery can take many forms including the trafficking of people, forced labour, servitude and slavery. We take our responsibility for supplying staff extremely seriously and are aware of the potential for being targeted by traffickers. Our own processes around candidate engagement ensure our employees are alert to the signs of exploitation, in order that we may take the necessary action promptly and effectively should it be identified.
This statement focuses specifically on URecruit’s compliance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the Act) and highlights the steps we take to ensure there is no slavery or human trafficking occurring within the organisation or its supply chains. One of our Company’s most valuable assets has always been its reputation for integrity and fairness. Maintaining this reputation within our market is an essential pre-requisite to our continued success.
Our Supply Chains

We expect our suppliers to aim for high ethical standards and to operate in an ethical, legally-compliant and professional manner by adhering to our Supplier Code of Conduct. We also expect our suppliers to promote similar standards in their own supply chain.
Suppliers & Clients are expected to adhere to our Supplier Code of Conduct, which includes specific reference to the Modern Slavery Act 2015, and should have in place a policy recognising, respecting and protecting the human rights of their employees, those of their suppliers and business partners and the communities affected by the suppliers’ operations.
