Kubrick Group Limited (“Kubrick”) is committed to acting ethically and with integrity and this modern slavery and human trafficking statement details our commitment to improving our practices to combat slavery and human trafficking pursuant to section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the “Act”).
1. Kubrick’s organisation and Structure
Kubrick is a professional services provider operating as a data consultancy that provides services in data, artificial intelligence, and cloud-based solutions. Our primary activities are recruiting and training graduates and junior professionals in our own academy across a range of technical and business disciplines in next generation technology solutions. We then supply our consultancy services to clients across the UK. Our workforce consists of over 1000 people and reflects a diverse array of backgrounds.
2. Kubrick supply chain
Our primary supply chain activity is in the recruitment of candidates in the U.K. In addition to this, our supply chain includes the procurement of the following services:
- IT equipment and software
- Cloud based storage software
- Professional Services from our corporate advisers
- Digital marketing services including brand, PR, and web design
- Construction and utility services for our HQ locations, including recruitment which is conducted through employment agencies
Kubrick has adopted procedures, such as an approval matrix and a purchasing procurement questionnaire, to assess suppliers before engaging with a particular product or service.
We have appropriate policies in place that underpin our commitment to ensure that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. We continuously review and update all our policies.
3. Kubrick’s approach to reporting potential instances of modern slavery and human trafficking
We take a zero-tolerance approach to any cases of modern slavery or human trafficking identified in our supply chain or our business. Our whistleblowing policy contains guidance on how to raise any questions or concerns that our people may have.
In the first instance, our employees are encouraged to raise whistleblowing concerns with their direct line manager. However, where the employee prefers not to raise the issue with their manager for any reason, they have the option of contacting our independent whistleblowing service, which provides a single report repository from the moment an incident is recorded through to conclusion of any subsequent investigation conducted by Kubrick.
4. Further Steps for Financial Year 2023
We shall continue to review and take the steps necessary to ensure that no slavery or human trafficking shall take place in our supply chains.
Our commitment to ensuring ongoing compliance with this policy is subject to our compliance program which ensures all our policies are monitored and implemented by our operations, legal and HR departments.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending July 2022.
This statement was approved by the HR Director of Kubrick in September 2022.
