Institute of Recruiters Announces UK’s first National Register of Recruiters
UK’s NEW ‘National Register of Recruiters’
Not-for-profit body, the Institute of Recruiters (IOR), has launched the UK’s National Register of Recruiters, a free-to-list register of UK recruitment firms and branches, increasing their visibility to employers and candidates by ensuring they appear in more online search results. Agencies are being urged not to miss out on opportunities the register will offer as definitive guide to UK recruiters.
The register will be heavily marketed to job seekers, employers and government as a central point to source recruiting firms that meet their needs. With over 75% of hires being driven by internet activity, the register will boost online visibility and reach to the listed recruitment agencies, as well as providing them with huge added potential to attract new customers and candidates, a powerful addition to their online marketing strategies.
Steve Keeler, Head of Government’s ‘Employment Agencies Standards Inspectorate’ (EAS) said:
"BIS/EAS works with all stakeholders in the recruitment sector to ensure compliance with legal obligations. IOR's National Register of Recruiters should increase awareness of the statutory requirements for recruiters, which is something we support".
Data from the register will be collated into monthly ‘industry reports’ freely available to recruiters and shared with government. In addition, listed recruitment companies can display a ‘Gold Standard’ mark if they complete a voluntary online audit in line with compliance standards enforced by the EAS (Employment Agencies Standards Inspectorate).
Azmat Mohammed, Director General at the IOR said:
“Supporting job seekers, employers and government by offering a single port of call to see which agencies meet their needs is a must for the industry. I am sure this national register will develop into a strong source of revenue for the agencies registered on it”.
Lindsey Bell, Partner at Clarke Willmott LLP and Employment Specialist to the IOR said:
“The National Register of Recruiters is yet another innovative tool that public and private sector employers will find easy to use. The online audits will be robust and allow employers further confidence in the way their recruiting partners are complying with legislation.”
Any UK recruitment agency (IOR member or not) wishing to register their firm (or local branch) on the National Register of Recruiters can do so freely at http://www.theior.org.uk/national-register-of-recruiters
