Modern slavery statement for financial year 2018/19
This statement is made pursuant to Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps that IDPP Consulting Limited 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.
Modern slavery encompasses slavery, servitude, human trafficking and forced labour. IDPP has a zero-tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery. We are 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.
IDPP Consulting Limited are an IT, IT Security and Telecoms recruitment business operating with the United Kingdom, with two offices and 30 employees.
Our high-risk areas
As our core business is focused on the provision of recruitment services in respect of IT professionals, (rather than in relation to agriculture, retail or manufacturing, which are sectors we perceive to present a higher risk of labour exploitation and modern slavery), we do not consider that we operate in a particularly high-risk sector. This evaluation process will continue an annual basis.
We operate a number of internal policies to ensure that we are conducting business in an ethical and transparent manner. These include:
We conduct due diligence on all suppliers. This due diligence includes an online search to ensure that each organisation has never been convicted of offenses relating to modern slavery.
Suppliers who enter into a contract with IDPP are confirming to us that:
Training & Performance Indicators
Given our view that IDPP’s exposure to modern slavery risk is limited, and the existing due diligence processes we already have in place as an organisation, except as noted above, we have not implemented any specific training of our UK employees or key performance indicators in relation to modern slavery and human trafficking during the previous financial year.
