Our Supply Chain 

Fircroft is a leading workforce solutions provider, therefore, our business is primarily comprised of providing specialist candidates for our clients. Our supply chain is also comprised of second tier agencies providing candidates to Fircroft for onward supply to our clients. We also use 3rd party suppliers to provide indirect goods and services to support our business operations. We expect the highest ethical standards from all aspects of our supply chain and Fircroft reserves the right to carry out spot checks and supplier audits at any time.

Our Approach 

Steps taken

Fircroft is committed to improving its global compliance practices in order to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking across the business and aims to develop and refine the practices put in place on an ongoing basis to demonstrate continuous improvement. 
Our corporate policies reflect the Company's commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all business relationships. Our policies are regularly reviewed, updated and communicated to ensure best practice and awareness. 

In 2019 alone, Fircroft Group has taken several major steps when it comes to ensuring that there are robust measures in place to prevent non-compliant and unethical practises. In 2019 the first global Compliance Committee was founded with the single purpose of overseeing the launch of the corporate global compliance programme to ensure that processes and controls put in place are as effective as possible.
Moving forward

Our next steps are as follows:


Fircroft will implement a global reporting (“whistleblowing”) portal along with a policy in 2019 and 2020 to allow all colleagues to report any compliance issues in confidence;

Fircroft aims to launch its first global Code of Conduct in line with the Fircroft Way in 2020 and this will be circulated to all colleagues and will be published online;

A requirement to provide further education and training for relevant colleagues will be assessed; 

Fircroft aims to circulate a Procurement Policy to further under-pin this statement;

All third-party suppliers will be requested to complete a Vendor Request Form as part of our ongoing due diligence processes;

The above Vendor Request Form will request evidence of their policy in compliance with the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015;

Following the responses to the above Vendor Request Forms and increased global risk assessments, further due diligence will be conducted to identify and potential areas or risk within Fircroft’s regional operations and supply chain and appropriate action taken if required.
