The Modern British Slave Trade

Did anybody watch Channel 4’s documentary  on The Modern British Slave Trade?

I did. And as not only as a recruiter but as a human being, I found it heart-breaking that in the 21st century, vulnerable and desperate people are still having this treatment inflicted on them. However, the harsh reality is, that it IS happening, not only the UK, but across the world and according to last night’s documentary, it’s a multi-billion dollar industry! It is OUR responsibility as Recruitment Agencies and Employers to ensure that enough is done to combat the issue, something that my fellow Hullian above, William Wilberforce, campaigned for his entire life.

At SureStaffing UK, we are proud to be working with the Gangmasters Licencing Authority, ALP and the Stronger Together initiative, aiming to reduce forced labour, trafficking and exploitation. To find out more on how you can learn to identify and assess whether someone is at risk, or if you want to find out what steps your labour provider has taken to ensure their workers are not at risk from illegal Gangmasters, please do not hesitate to contact a member of our team on  01482 629797 for free information and advice.

Running for Charity

SureStaffing is pleased to announce that two of its valued team members, Glen Haliwell and Tom O’Neil, are participating in this year’s Hull 10K on the 18th June 2016.

This will be the Hull 10K’s eighth year, and is one of the many Run For All events taking place across the UK every year. Run For All is the just part of the legacy of Jane Tomlinson CBE, who made headlines all over the world by taking part in a huge number of endurance events despite having been diagnosed with cancer. These events allow people across the UK to raise money for thousands of great causes by taking part in races which vary from fun runs to full marathons.

Glen is running to raise funds for his son’s rugby club, Holderness Vikings, and Tom is running for Cancer Research. As you can see, Glen is taking his training regime very seriously, with a diet consisting of crisps, biscuits and chocolate. Good job he still has 5 months to get into shape!

We wish them, and all other participants, luck for June!
