Osborne Thomas Limited
Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement 2022
Osborne Thomas Ltd was founded in 2011 to provide a range of recruitment related services to the public sector:
- We are Fair, Open and Honest;
- We Take Ownership; and
- We Work Together
These values are directly relevant to the issues associated with eradicating the evil of modern slavery and Osborne Thomas is committed to developing and improving its processes to combat slavery and human trafficking.
Although Osborne Thomas provides a very wide range of recruitment related services, Osborne Thomas particular focus is on the provision of what might be best described as ‘traditional’ recruitment services, matching work seekers seeking both interim and permanent employment with employers looking to fill various roles within the public sector.
Osborne Thomas has very limited scope for slavery and human trafficking to take place in our business particularly as all of the workers engaged by Osborne Thomas work in the UK and are, therefore, entitled to receive at least the statutory minimum employment rights provided for by law
