Our Organisational Structure

A member of the Russell Group of research-intensive universities, we are committed to high quality research across a wide range of disciplines. We have over 30 academic departments and research centres and a student body of around 18,000.

Our Policies and Actions to Prevent Slavery and Human Trafficking

网赌最好最大的平台在进行任何学术活动时都遵循良好道德管理的实践守则和原则, this is reinforced in the University’s Strategic Aims for delivering research for the public good. 守则特别考虑在海外进行或与海外伙伴合作进行的活动, in countries/under regimes with poor human rights record or identified as dangerous by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office.

It is a condition of employment with the University, irrespective of the type and duration of contract, that successful candidates are able to prove they are legally entitled to work in the UK. All potential employees are asked to bring original documents, demonstrating their right to work in advance of their start date.  所有员工在承担大学的任何工作之前,都要检查他们的工作权利文件.



In terms of our supply chain, we are working in collaboration with Netpositive Futures and have continued to embed an online supplier engagement tool, developed in conjunction with the Stockholm Environment Institute at York, which increases awareness of sustainability issues and allows us to:

  • Establish a single mechanism to engage contracted suppliers with the issues of Modern Slavery.
  • Provide support and guidance to our supply base and share best practice.
  • 跟踪权威推荐全球最大网赌正规平台的供应链在解决现代奴隶制方面所采取的行动和取得的进展.

In addition, 大学现在以自己的权利注册了Netpositive供应商参与工具,为其他组织提供服务.

Areas of Risk of Slavery and Human Trafficking

权威推荐全球最大网赌正规平台认识到,奴隶和人口贩运的主要风险是在物业管理的高支出供应链领域 & Construction, IT, Laboratory Supplies and Catering. 通过权威推荐全球最大网赌正规平台的供应商参与工具的工作,权威推荐全球最大网赌正规平台将依次处理每个支出领域,以查看权威推荐全球最大网赌正规平台的供应链已经到位的战略,以确保奴隶制和人口贩运的风险最小化.

Property Management and Construction

Property management and construction constitute the second largest area of the University’s expenditure and, as such, presents an area of influence in reducing the risks of modern slavery occurring in the supply chain. While due diligence is carried out on the employment practices of contractors, another area of risk is how building materials are produced. 大学采购的所有木材相关产品均经森林管理委员会(FSC)认证,具有完整的监管链,这意味着木材和木材产品均来自维持或提高其工人的社会或经济福利的供应商(The Ten FSC Principles).

IT

The University uses a number of framework agreements in the IT equipment and consumables area. In this area, 拥有这些框架的采购联盟采取积极步骤,以减少供应链中发生滥用的风险. 管理权威推荐全球最大网赌正规平台在PC和笔记本电脑上使用的协议的联盟是附属于Electronics Watch的,他们审计权威推荐全球最大网赌正规平台的一些主要电子供应商的供应链.

Laboratory supplies

Laboratory consumables is an area at risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring, given the low value/high throughput nature of their production across factories in many countries. 负责大学使用的框架协议的采购联盟将在建立下一个实验室耗材框架时,要求所有供应商承诺遵守伦理交易倡议(ETI)的基本准则.

Catering
