At Pilgrim’s UK, we also work with Bright Futures – a co-operative that helps survivors of modern slavery build a new life with a job that pays them a fair and decent wage. Under the Bright Future scheme, victims are offered a four-week paid work placement leading to a non-competitive interview. If both elements are successful, the candidate will be offered a permanent job within the host business. Eight survivors have already been given a chance to rebuild their lives by Pilgrim’s UK, with four still in permanent employment. It is envisaged that more people will secure placements through the program thanks to this new structure.
