S.J.M. Limited trading as S.J.M. Concerts (owned by S.J.M. Holdings Limited)
This statement is made pursuant to section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps taken by S.J.M. Holdings Limited, and its subsidiaries including (but not limited to) SJM Ltd (and its trading websites), to ensure that slavery and human trafficking (together known as modern slavery) are not taking place in any part of our business or supply chains.
S.J.M. Concerts is one of the UK's leading promoters, working in partnership with some of the UK's most prominent artists and concerts to provide promotion and ticketing.
S.J.M. Concerts (through S.J.M. Holdings Limited and its subsidiaries) currently operates solely in the UK and Ireland and together employ circa 70 employees.
At S.J.M. Concerts we have a zero tolerance rule in relation to modern slavery. We recognise that it can take many forms and can appear at all levels of both supply chains and recruitment processes but what is common to them all is the impact on their victims and their families.
In order to minimise the risk of modern slavery infiltrating our business, we are taking a number of steps across our operations, the main ones being:
- Putting in place a policy, to apply to all staff at all levels, which sets out our zero tolerance rule and the proactive approach that all staff must take to help ensure that modern slavery is not present in our business
- All suppliers are expected to achieve high standards of regulatory compliance, particularly in relation to modern slavery.
- Via our relationship with those suppliers we seek to ensure that each and every single supplier:
- takes all necessary actions to ensure the health and safety of all labour engaged in their business and supply chain;
- is vigilant of, and adopts a zero tolerance approach to, issues of modern slavery;
- complies with all laws and regulations in relation to working conditions;
- has and adheres to an anti-bribery policy; and
- works with us to allow us to audit areas of potential risk and then takes the necessary actions to reduce that risk.
- Together with the policy referred to above, rolling out a program of training to all staff setting out their responsibilities in relation to modern slavery and guiding them on key signs that could indicate modern slavery potentially being present
Our commitment to this is such that year on year, we will continue to review the steps we have taken and consider what else we can do to minimise the risk further.
