Probably easiest to call the manufacturer customer service and they will probably send them out
If the base of the sink is flat just silicone the worktop then sit the sink in position with something heavy weighing it down overnight.

I dont think any reasonable tradesman would fit a sink like that. No offence.

How many sinks have you fitted where there are no fixing points for the brackets?

I can categorically state I have never fitted a kitchen sink, ever. But the fitting points are the groves which you can see in the photos which clamps attach to.

You will often find the clips have nowhere to hook into...

I've also fitted sinks where the clips don't fit the thickness of worktop, the clips don't tighten at all, or when tightened bow the thin steel, or force the ends of the sink to bow up.

If you silicone the sink down it will not move. In an ideal world clips will also be used but he used the term asap.
The kitchen fitter is only here until Friday, I’m helping him so need them quick , b&q ect don’t seem to sell them
If it's a composite sink like in the picture just silicone around the cut and sit it in there. It will set after 12 hours and the sink will be fine. It's not like stainless steel sinks that need clips all over just to pull the edges in. I have installed many composite sinks in this way. Also you won't get the clips anywhere apart from the manufacturer or eBay. But you don't need them.

I think you need to start thinking then, no offence!
Silicone composite sinks in all the time, and never had a problem.
