HOW WE WORK

MODERN SLAVERY STATEMENT
Medical Employment Solutions Ltd is a specialist healthcare Job Board registered in England and Wales. We help UK Healthcare Employers in recruitment of candidates searching for roles in the UK healthcare sector. We cover clinical and non-clinical healthcare jobs. Candidates searching for jobs can register on our secure website and apply for jobs advertised. Registration process is secure and allows candidates to opt out and delete their registration details at any time if they no longer require our services.
Medical Employment Solutions is strongly opposed to slavery and human trafficking. We strive to act and deliver our business dealings safely and ethically to ensure that slavery and human trafficking are not taking place in our organization and supply chains. We make sure that registrants only apply for suitable jobs matching their qualifications through the registration data provided. Candidates can also access SAFERjobs website for current information on job scams. The website is clearly shown on our Home page.
OUR SUPPLY CHAINS AND POSITION ON MODERN SLAVERY
We engage with various UK based Healthcare providers in order to help them recruit staff and fill their vacant positions. We require our suppliers to comply with all laws and regulations and expect them to maintain the highest ethical standards in all areas of their business operations. If we find out that a supplier is allowing modern slavery offences in their business dealings, we will notify the relevant authorities and terminate their contract. Current services offered by our suppliers include website care maintenance, IT, hosting services and legal support and many others that we still need to engage with basing on our business needs.
Our current turnover is far less than the £36m threshold set out in the Modern Slavery Act 2015 but we want to ensure that all job seekers are aware of Modern Slavery. We want to help them understand that we do not support Modern Slavery and guide them where necessary. We are also aware that some of our suppliers like the NHS Hospitals and some Nursing Homes will have a turnover above £36m so we want to assure them that we comply with the law and do not allow modern slavery offences in our organization and supply chain. UK Healthcare Employers offering jobs to International healthcare job seekers must
follow Home Office guidelines and policies. This include applying for TIER 2 sponsorship visas for the candidates before they take up the roles. We offer clear guidance for nurses, doctors, social workers, psychologists, biochemists applying from abroad. This is free advice for candidates. We support them from the time they register on our website and offer them the necessary guidelines about UK job applications. Candidates are encouraged to contact us about any concerns during their job search.
OUR DUE DILIGENCE PROCESSES
UK Healthcare providers advertising jobs on our website must follow well established public-sector framework agreements. They are monitored by CQC and registered with contracting authorities.
RISK ASSESSMENT AND MANAGEMENT
We work closely with our suppliers who advertise healthcare jobs on our website and ensure that they understand our position about modern slavery and human trafficking. We aim to assist all job applicants with relevant information about safety when applying for jobs.
The risks of modern slavery and human trafficking is generally low within our supply chain. Employment is freely chosen by candidates through applying for suitable jobs meeting their requirements. Candidates will be supplied with the Modern Slavery Helpline contact number when they register on our website.
