Meet the teams
We’re committed to making a fair environment for the self-employed.
Whether it’s campaigning for change through our policy and research teams or helping our members focus on doing what they love, everyone at IPSE has got your back. We know how dedicated and hard working our members are so when we build our team we look for the same qualities; to be motivated and passionate about making change. Meet a few members of our team below and if you have any questions, please get in touch.
Andy joined IPSE all the way back in 2010, at the start of the Coalition government. He is now our Director of Policy and Member Engagement and has forged strong links with key decision makers, relevant business groups and IPSE’s membership. Accept no substitute – Andy is very much part and parcel of the IPSE fabric who supervises, directs and controls IPSE’s policy work. Andy has many other IR35 related puns but he couldn’t think of a way to get them into this short bio!
