Changes to our privacy policy

Any changes we make to our privacy policy in the future will be posted on this page. It is the user’s sole responsibility to check the site to refresh your understanding of this privacy statement and its content.

Money Laundering

ACA is required by law to comply with UK Anti Money Laundering Regulations (AML Regulations). We may therefore need to confirm your identity by asking you to provide originals of paper identity evidence, and check your identity electronically by using a reference agency to search sources of information relating to you (this will not affect your credit rating).

Modern Slavery

ACA takes its responsibility to comply with the Modern Slavery Act 2015 very seriously. We ensure that employees should be free to choose to work for their employer and to leave the company upon reasonable notice. Upon hiring by our clients, all employees must be provided with a clear contract of employment, which complies with all necessary legislation. We expect that the companies for which we recruit, will treat all employees in a fair and equal manner, with dignity and respect, and any without form of discrimination. We will not work with companies who do not have an established reputation for legal and ethical treatment of their employees.
