The Institute of Recruiters - IOR is a United Kingdom (UK) based international professional body for both recruiters and human resources professionals. IOR was founded by British entrepreneur Azmat Mohammed and incorporated in the United Kingdom in February 2011.

Global organisation[edit]

The Institute of Recruiters is headquartered in the UK but has a sister organisation (American Institute of Recruiters) based in Delaware, United States. Both organizations act as a route to export British recruitment standards internationally, and help promote the United Kingdom as the world's foremost and advanced authority within the recruitment and HR specialisms.

UK launch[edit]

In the UK, the organisation adopts a code of conduct for recruiters that is in-line with government standards regulated by the Employment Agencies Standards Inspectorate (EAS), an executive division of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS). By doing so both members and non members are required to abide by its code to avoid breaching UK laws and regulations.


The Institute of Recruiters has begun creation of a set of open global recruitment and HR standards for the recruitment and HR professions, supported by an international alliance of industry sector partners. A core aim of the IOR is to promote British recruitment standards as 'World Leading', and the benchmark of professionalism for the global industry.


The Institute of Recruiters has begun creating several partnerships to allow recruiters to experience an array of services from the recruitment and HR industry elite.


As part of its international remit, the institute has begun lobbying government in order to bring about changes to laws that are of great concern to HR practitioners and recruiters[citation needed].
