Gangmasters Licence Awarded

Following a demanding assessment process, we were recently delighted to receive confirmation that we had been awarded a Gangmasters Licence by the Gangmasters Licencing Authority. Our licence can be viewed on the following website:- our licence number is OCTO0001.

The GLA audit was a huge success and we passed with flying colours. This is a great achievement and shows our commitment and dedication to the highest levels of recruitment practice.

The licence is designed to protect temporary workers within the food chain from exploitation by unscrupulous gangmasters in the UK and acts as a seal of approval of both best practice and legally compliant labour provider. The GLA requires all suppliers to use only labour providers who are working in compliance of the Code of Practice and those who have obtained a licence.

Obtaining this licence will allow us to offer an enhanced service to our clients
