At FastTrack, we believe that providing a recruitment service to our clients is not just about finding somebody to fill a role… it is equally important to ensure that the correct Policies and Procedures are in place to guarantee that we consistently operate lawfully. As a business, we thoroughly understand all fundamental procedures and are committed to implementing legal and industry requirements; enabling us to provide a lawful, fair and safe environment for all of our employees and candidates.
FastTrack is committed to actively promoting diversity for all employees, workers and applicants by ensuring that we, under no circumstances, discriminate on the grounds of an individual’s ‘protected characteristics’.
With qualities such as age, disability, gender re-assignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation all highlighted within the Equality Act 2010, FastTrack continuously review all aspects of our recruitment methods in order to avoid unlawful discrimination.
In addition, we will not discriminate on the grounds of an individual's membership or non-membership of a Trade Union.
FastTrack are compliant with 'The Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses (Amendment) Regulations 2010' and have the measures in place to ensure that we work in accordance with this act.
In our area of work, where overseas workers are highly valued, we appreciate the importance of adhering to immigration laws. We take care to conduct identification and visa checks thoroughly before candidates go to site, as well as recognising that communicating and understanding the importance of health and safety standards in the UK is vital in the industries in which we operate. We therefore similarly ensure that any overseas workers can understand and can communicate in the English language to a suitable standard.
FastTrack identify that there are many non-compliant engagement and payment structures operating in the UK. We therefore ensure that each worker we place on site is either directly employed by our company or engaged by a third party company that operates an HMRC compliant structure. Prior to including any of these companies on our approved supplier list, we undertake an audit of their processes to ensure such compliance.
FastTrack’s Safety Management System and Environment Management System is accredited to OHSAS 18001:2007 and ISO 14001:2004
