Improve Your Accent, Founder

"IPSE gives freelancers the support they need to thrive in today's market. For me, the best part of IPSE membership is attending the organised events as I always learn something new and make useful connections."


Iona Bain
The Young Money Blog, Founder

"Being a member of IPSE has plugged me into a fantastic array of resources that I just wouldn't be able to access otherwise. I've also been given access to really useful perks that are normally only available to full-time employees."


Tim Bradburn
Blue Cricket, Founder

"As an IPSE Plus member I rest easy knowing that support is just a phone call away. The tax and legal helplines have solved quite a few issues for me over the years. They have saved me a lot of pain and even got me a VAT refund!"
