We provide equal opportunities and ensure that all employment, including work experience and internships, is voluntary.

To help our team better understand and identify the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking, we provide regular, comprehensive training. Our aim is to create a knowledgeable and alert workforce that can recognise potential violations and know how to respond appropriately.
