Modern slavery and human trafficking statement & Policy
D R Newitt and its subidiaries (D R Newitt & Associates, D R Newitt Recuitment, D R Newitt Limited and D R Newitt Interim) recognise that modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as
slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the
deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain.
D R Newitt and all it’s subsidiaries have a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and we are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in our own business or in any of our supply chains.
We are also committed to ensuring there is transparency in our own business and in our approach
to tackling modern slavery throughout our supply chains, consistent with our disclosure obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015. We expect the same high standards from all of our contractors, suppliers and other business partners. As part of our contracting processes, we include specific prohibitions against the use of forced, compulsory or trafficked labour, or anyone held in slavery or servitude, whether adults or children, and we expect that our suppliers will hold their own suppliers to the same high standards.
We are a provider of Recruitment Services in a number of sectors including, Food Manufacturing, FMCG Manufacturing Health & Beauty, IT and Finance
We have a global annual turnover of £8 Million.
