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.
