Maze Recruitment Group Ltd provide schools across the UK with comprehensive recruitment solutions. We provide high quality teaching and support staff to schools on a temporary, permanent and contract basis.

As required by the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the “Act”), this statement describes the steps Maze Recruitment Group Ltd has taken during the financial year ended 31 March 2024 to prevent modern slavery from taking place in our supply chains and/or within our own business.

Due to the nature of our business, we assess ourselves to have a low risk of modern slavery. Our supply chains are limited, and we do not operate in an industry where modern slavery is prevalent, but nevertheless we are committed to taking steps in identifying and reducing potential risks within the business and its supply chains.

We do this by having in place:

- A robust recruitment process with strict compliance around immigration and the hiring of staff to ensure they are legitimate and legally entitled to work and live in the UK.

- Strong ethical values which help endorse our respect for human rights, which we uphold and regularly review.

- A Whistleblowing policy to encourage concerns from staff and other business partners about wrongdoings, to help generate an open culture of respect.

- Code of conduct to ensure employees conduct contributes significantly to our reputation and lives up to our zero tolerance against bullying and harassment.

- Equal Opportunities policy to ensure all employees are totally committed to creating a working environment in which everyone is treated with dignity and respect, which is free from unlawful discrimination, victimisation or harassment.

Maze Recruitment Group Ltd cares about human rights and we are confident that our policies promote good behaviour among our colleagues at work and within our organisation. Our policies and procedures are kept under review to make sure that they reflect the changing needs of Maze Recruitment Group Ltd and of the staff.

Modern slavery, servitude, forced or compulsory labour and human trafficking are grave violations of fundamental human rights and freedoms. We live up to our commitments and core values of care by identifying at an early stage any risks relating to modern slavery, as well as by supporting wider societal efforts to stamp out modern slavery.
