Representation

Big companies can look after themselves. But if you work for yourself, who looks out for you?

That is where IPSE comes in.  Did you know that independent professionals contribute more to the UK economy than the entire automotive industry? As a non-profit association run by its members, IPSE works tirelessly to ensure we are properly recognised.

Your membership fees pay for IPSE’s policy experts to influence those in government to support independent professionals through better regulation.

IPSE also helps clients, agencies, accountancy firms and other key industry players to understand independent working – this promotes better working relationships between all parties.

We have achieved many industry recognitions for our work, including the 2015 and 2016 BIS Trade Association Forum Award for Sector Representation and the 2016 Association Award for Effective Voice.
