Ethical Supplier Policy

Wesleyan aims to ensure that it is easy for suppliers to do business with us. It is important to us that we treat our suppliers fairly, including paying on time.

Wesleyan also has strict rules around accepting gifts and hospitality from suppliers. This is to comply with anti-bribery legislation, but also to ensure that we are adopting a transparent approach in our dealings with suppliers. This maximises our opportunities to find the best suppliers, that will deliver us great service and good value for money.

Wesleyan takes an ethical approach to business and we expect our suppliers to do the same. The following issues are particularly important to Wesleyan and we expect our suppliers to adopt these principles and demonstrate how performance is being improved:

  • Supplier Diversity - Wesleyan is committed to treating everyone in the organisation with dignity and respect, and we recognise the benefits that a diverse workforce can bring in terms of decision-making, creativity and innovation.  We expect our suppliers not only to comply with all relevant legislation, including the Equality Act 2010, but also to demonstrate that they have a strong commitment to our equality and diversity principles. We reserve the right to take this factor into account as part of our supplier selection and ongoing supplier management activities.

  • Modern Slavery - The Society works to ensure that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. Procurement supports this objective by ensuring that compliance with the Modern Slavery Act is checked as part of the supplier setup due diligence checks and periodic ongoing monitoring.

  • Environmental Sustainability - Wesleyan is committed to conducting our business in an environmentally sustainable manner. We expect our suppliers to set environmental targets with the goal of continually improving their environmental performance (e.g. pollution, energy consumption, recycling, reduced paper usage).

Over time, we intend to develop this into a more formal Ethical Supplier Policy, which we will expect our suppliers to sign up to.

Invoicing Requirements

Our standard payment terms are 30 days following receipt of a valid invoice (quoting a correct purchase order number).

We have a 'no purchase order, no pay' policy. Any invoice received without a valid purchase order number will be returned to the supplier. Wesleyan reserves the right to reject payment for work carried out without a valid purchase order. If anyone from Wesleyan requests that you start work without a purchase order, please decline and ensure that a purchase order is raised.

Invoices are to be raised by the supplier upon receipt of goods and/or services, unless an alternative invoice trigger is agreed in writing by both parties. All invoices should be submitted via email to Any follow up queries regarding invoicing should also be addressed here. Please note that invoices should not be addressed to named individuals.

Terms & Conditions

Wesleyan has standard purchase order terms and conditions in place. These are available on our website. These will apply to any good or service purchased by Wesleyan unless another contract has been agreed by both parties.
