Modern Slavery Policy
Modern Slavery Statement
Our Business and Values
We are a specialist recruitment consultancy operating throughout Europe in all sectors. We provide short or long-term labour hire solutions through the AA Euro Recruitment Group brand and subsidiaries. Permanent, senior, and executive level placement solutions are provided by Euro Executive. AA Euro Recruitment Group Limited operates primarily in Ireland, the UK, and Europe with our Head Office based in Ireland. AA Euro Recruitment Group Limited has approximately 500 employees.
We work closely with our clients and several suppliers. The majority of these businesses operate within Ireland, the UK, and Europe and this statement is made pursuant to Section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, setting out the steps we believe, mitigate our risk with respect to slavery and human trafficking.
Modern Slavery is a serious crime, violating an individual’s fundamental rights. We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. This Anti-slavery Statement reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our business or our supply chains. AA Euro Recruitment Group’s ‘Zero Philosophy’ is applied to everything we do at every level of our organisation. To ensure all those in our supply chain comply with our values, we require our supply chain to contractually commit to compliance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
Our processes are both transparent and thorough. We have robust procedures in place for vetting potential new employees and ensuring we can accurately confirm their identities.
Our Employee Ethics and Responsibility policy outlines our commitment to conduct our business to the highest standard, the role our employees play and the procedure for raising any issues of illegal or unethical activities.
As part of AA Euro Recruitment Group’s on-going commitment to comply with the Modern Slavery Act, 2015, AA Euro Recruitment Group will continue to monitor and mitigate any risks within the AA Euro Recruitment Group and our supply chain, so that effective controls and contingency plans can be put in place if required.
Adherence to The Modern Slavery Act 2015 forms part of our contract with our clients/supplier list and includes appropriate provision for ascertaining the measures taken by our client/supply chain to help eradicate modern slavery. Our procedural controls are reinforced by our strategic procurement approach to developing preferred client/supplier relationships with key supply chain partners.
To ensure a clear understanding of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and the risks, we provide training to relevant members of staff.
This Policy Statement is supported by our internal policies which assist in ensuring that we conduct our business in a transparent manner and implement effective controls, for example, compliance with our Right to Work in the UK policy, promoting our equal opportunities policies, and ensuring employees align to our Code of Conduct and Employees Ethics and Responsibility Policies. These policies implement effective systems to ensure, as far as is practical, that human trafficking and slavery are not taking place in Bennett or any of our supply chains.
This statement is made pursuant to s.54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and serves as our Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking statement for the year ending 31 December 2023.
