Shetland Seafood Auctions are committed to the Scottish Governments Fair Work First Policy. We aim to always promote and practice fair work in recruitment and employment. 

By continually adhering to the Scottish Governments Guidance on effective voice, fulfilment, opportunity, security and respect, we are invested in ensuring we are a place of choice to work and grow. We are committed to providing the following:

  • Regular lines of communication with all staff and provide a representative on our board of directors to be the voice for our employees.
  • Offer flexible and family working practices for all workers from day one of employment.
  • Training and learning opportunities for all employees.
  • Competitive rates of pay above the real living wage and constantly review these rates of pay.
  • A limited number of zero-hour contracts for legitimate and appropriate reasons, e.g. seasonal work and managing peaks in work, but their use is constantly being assessed
