PART 2 – Responsibilities

Under the Bribery Act (2010) this Anti-Bribery Policy applies to all members of staff of the company, and they are required to familiarise themselves and comply with the policy. A bribe is a financial advantage or other reward that is offered to, given to, or received by an individual or company (whether directly or indirectly) to induce or influence that individual or company to perform public or corporate functions or duties improperly.

Members of staff and others acting for or on behalf of the company are strictly prohibited from making, soliciting, or receiving any bribes or unauthorised payments. As part of our anti-bribery measures, we are committed to engage only in transparent, proportionate, reasonable, and bona fide hospitality and expenditure.


A breach of the Anti-Bribery Policy by a member of staff will be treated as grounds for disciplinary action, which may result in a finding of gross misconduct and immediate dismissal. Members of staff and other individuals acting for the company should note that bribery is a criminal offence that may result in up to 10 years’ imprisonment and/or an unlimited fine for the individual and an unlimited fine for the company.

We will not conduct business with service providers, suppliers or representatives that do not support our anti-bribery objectives.


The success of our anti-bribery measures depends on everyone playing their part in helping to detect and eradicate bribery. Therefore, all staff members and others acting for, or on behalf of the company are encouraged to report any suspicious activity to the Managing Director. The company will support any individuals who make such a report in good faith.
