Institute of Directors

The Institute of Directors (IoD) is a UK-based organisation, established in 1903 and incorporated by royal charter in 1906 to support, represent and set standards for company directors. It occupies grade I listed premises on Pall Mall, London built 1826-28 to the designs of John Nash. The IoD currently has around 44,000 members, and has premises open for the use of those members in London (3 locations), Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Leeds, Manchester, Norwich, Paris, and Reading. Its leaders are known to be opposed to at least some of the established workers' rights such as flexible working and organized labor. The IoD deliver an award, the Certificate in Company Direction and the Diploma in Company Direction, which covers key topics such as role of company director, financial responsibilities of directors and key topics under strategic business direction. These qualifications are suitable for directors across different sectors and background and can ultimately lead to Chartered Director status, uniquely offered through the IoD in London.
