We are a digital business working in the UK financial services sector as an insurance intermediary, providing short term, learner driver and trade motor insurance.
Although we are not required to make a modern slavery statement under section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (The Act), we are making this voluntary statement to show our commitment to implementing systems and controls aimed at ensuring that modern slavery is not taking place anywhere within our organisation or in any of our supply chains.
The implementation and enforcement of effective systems and controls within the organisation and our supply chains will safeguard against slavery and human trafficking.
We expect that our suppliers will hold their own suppliers to the same high standards.
We are a company that expects everyone working with us or on our behalf to support and uphold the following measures to safeguard against modern slavery:
- We have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery in our organisation and our supply chains
- The prevention, detection and reporting of modern slavery in any part of our organisation or supply chain is the responsibility of all those working for us or on our behalf. Workers must not engage in, facilitate or fail to report any activity that might lead to, or suggest, a breach of The Act
- We are committed to engaging with our stakeholders and suppliers to address the risk of modern slavery in our operations and supply chain
- We take a risk-based approach to our contracting processes and keep them under review
- We assess whether the circumstances warrant the inclusion of specific prohibitions against the use of modern slavery and trafficked labour in our contracts with third parties
- Using our risked based approach, we will also assess the merits of writing to suppliers requiring them to comply with our Code of Conduct, which sets out the minimum standards required to combat modern slavery and trafficking
- If we identify that other individuals or organisations working on our behalf have breached the requirements of The Act, we will ensure that we take appropriate action. This would include considering termination of any relationship.
Due diligence and risk assessment
- As part of our ongoing risk assessment and due diligence processes, we will consider whether circumstances warrant us carrying out audits of suppliers for their compliance with the requirements of The Act
- We include anti-slavery and human trafficking provisions in our contract with suppliers
- We only employ colleagues based in the UK. Colleague relations are managed consistently across the business by the Human Resources department
- We only employ contractors through reputable employment agencies, that adhere to our anti-slavery and human trafficking approach.
To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our organisation, all staff are expected to be familiar with this statement.
All hiring managers are expected to adhere to the requirements of this statement and the provisions of The Act when recruiting for a role.
