Introduction from the Board

Slavery and human trafficking remain a blight on our global society and we all have a responsibility to be alert to the risks, however small, within our own business and in the wider supply chain.

Our Supply Chain

QUBA is committed to acting ethically and we expect all of our suppliers to make the same commitment. QUBA will address any failures by its suppliers to meet our standards on a case by case basis. If we are not satisfied with the outcome of our enquiries and/or investigation, we may cease to trade with the relevant supplier.

Our Policies on Slavery & Human Trafficking

We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. Our Anti-Slavery policy reflects our commitment to always acting ethically and with integrity throughout our business relationships.

Due Diligence for Slavery & Human Trafficking

As part of our policy and procedures to identify any risk, we ensure that:

  • Where viable, we run regular Assignment Checks to ensure that workers’ hours and pay are accurate and that their working environment matches our requirements.
  • We always complete a Right to Work check, ensuring that workers have the right to work in the UK and are aware of the rights and responsibilities associated with working in the UK.
  • Where possible, we speak with agency partners to ensure that workers are provided with adequate support throughout their assignment.
  • We aim to always build long standing relationships with suppliers and clients and always make our expectations clear in respect of business practices and ethics.
  • We aim to work with suppliers which are members of their appropriate trade association.
  • We encourage all of our workers, customers and other business partners to report any concerns related to our business activities and supply chains. This may be carried out in accordance with our Whistleblowing Policy.
  • With regards to international supply chains, our primary point of contact is preferably with a UK company or branch and we expect these entities to have suitable anti-slavery and human trafficking policies and procedures which mirror our own policies and procedures.

Supplier Adherence

We have a zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking. We expect all those in our supply chain and any contractors to comply with the values set out in this document.


To guarantee a high level of understanding and engagement with this policy and the risks associated with modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chain or business, we provide training to relevant members of staff. All staff members are encouraged and regularly reminded to raise any concerns that they may have either to their manager, the Head of HR or General Counsel.

In 2023, there were no modern slavery related risk incidents reported to management. All Directors have been briefed on this subject.

Whilst we provide essential legislation training to all new employees as part of their induction, we have also added Modern Slavery training to our Management Development Programme, the first cohort for which completed the programme in December 2023.

Measuring Our Effectiveness

We use the following key performance indicators (KPI’s) to measure how effective we have been in combatting slavery and human trafficking in any part of our business or supply chain:

  1. Completion of Audits by Managers and Business Development Managers.
  2. Use of Labour monitoring and Payroll Systems.
  3. Level of communication and personal contact with both workers and the next level in the supply chain to ensure their level of compliance and understanding matches our own.


This statement has been approved by QUBA’s board of directors and is made in pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes the business’ slavery and human trafficking statement.
