Our business and structure

We are a leading IT services provider offering services in Cyber Security operating in the United Kingdom with over 250 employees across Edinburgh and London.

Purpose

Our purpose is to safeguard customer data from theft or damage therefore we take adherence to legislation seriously and strive to always act ethically and with integrity.

Our supply chains

Our supply chain includes cleaning services, couriers, IT hardware and software providers, building and maintenance contractors, IT consultants, recruitment agencies, marketing services, legal and insurance advisers, training providers, business travel agents and criminal and financial screening agents.

Taking action

We are committed to ethical trading principles and to acquiring goods and services without harm to others. We consider our supply chain the main area of potential exposure to forced labour, consequently, we are taking action to ensure that we explore risks in our supply chain and establish a process whereby Modern Slavery provisions are included in each supplier contract including (i) a commitment to taking adequate steps to eradicate forced labour from their business and supply chain and (ii) give us the ability to terminate the contract without notice where the supplier has failed to take such steps.

We continue to monitor suppliers who we believe could present high modern slavery risks in our supply chain. Where we consider any new supplier to be within a jurisdiction, industry or sector that is high risk in relation to modern slavery, we will carry out additional due diligence on such suppliers.

We intend to record key performance indicators such as the incidences of modern slavery being reported; the percentage of supplier contracts that include a modern slavery and human trafficking compliance clause; and the level of staff training within the company.

We intend to implement appropriate training course for relevant staff involved in the procurement process, to make them aware of the requirements of the Act.

Our people

As a destination employer for cyber careers in the UK the recruitment and engagement of staff is of paramount importance to us and we undertake a thorough pre-employment screening process of all staff.

Our senior leadership team at Adarma Limited are responsible for implementing this Transparency Statement, which is reviewed at least annually and made available on our website.
