The SR Group is a global specialist recruitment organisation, headquartered in the UK, which focuses on Legal, Risk, Compliance, HR, Tax, Treasury, Marketing and Executive Search disciplines trading under the names Brewer Morris, Carter Murray, Frazer Jones and Taylor Root. The Group employs over 350 employees out of 12 offices worldwide and has a global turnover in excess of £45,000,000.
The group is committed to ensuring compliance with all laws and regulations relevant to our business in all countries where we operate. Following the implementation of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, The SR Group is committed to maintaining and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere within our own business or in any of our supply chains.
Modern slavery is criminal activity and a violation of human rights. The deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain is unacceptable. For these reasons, slavery and human trafficking is a matter of zero tolerance at The SR Group.
Internally, we engage with our employees and candidates on a professional and respectful basis and have established contractual employment practices clearly outlining their rights under UK legislation.
All employees are paid above national minimum wage and have access to a suite of benefits including pension and private healthcare.
Our employees are protected by internal policies, including anti-slavery and human trafficking, formal grievance, code of conduct and whistle-blowing policies, which provide both protection and a voice in challenging malpractice within the group, and we provide employee training at induction clearly laying out their obligations under related legislation and conduct policies.
Supply Chain management
We expect that all suppliers to the group meet our own standards of compliance with local legislation, including the Modern Slavery Act 2015. All staff involved in the engagement of suppliers must communicate our zero-tolerance approach to all prospective parties at the outset of our business relationship and monitor our approach as appropriate thereafter. We may terminate our relationship with third parties engaged with us if they do not comply with this Policy.
Responsibility for reporting incidents
The detection and reporting of slavery is the responsibility of all of us. Our employees are expected to raise any concerns about any issue or suspicion of modern slavery in any part of our business or supply chain at the earliest possible stage. Please contact our divisional Partner group, HR Director or CEO to discuss any concerns you may have – it is their responsibility to investigate and take any necessary action.
This policy applies to all members, employees, agents, consultants and those parties in our supply chain, wherever in the world they operate. Any reported breach of this policy will be investigated and may lead to disciplinary action which subsequently could result in employee dismissal. A copy of our Human Rights policy is available upon request.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31 December 2019.
