  • Managing the website
  • Managing our newsletter
  • Researching the human rights-related landscape and identify opportunities in terms of business, content or advocacy

The ideal candidate would have:

 *******
Today 35.8 million men, women and children are estimated to be victims of trafficking or forced or coerced labour in the world. In a global economy where resources and suppliers are spread around the world, slavery needs to be tackled both at local and global level. Businesses in particular can be one of the key driving forces in ending modern slavery. Since November 1st 2015, all companies with a turnover of over £36 million that have some activity in the UK are required through the UK Modern Slavery Act to release a yearly report detailing the measures they and their suppliers have put in place to eradicate slavery and what further steps they are planning to take.
ChainChecked creates tools that enable businesses to comply with the Modern Slavery Act in a simple and transparent way. We are committed to driving businesses to make a positive change in a positive way.
