We are APSCo OutSource, the trade association for the RPO, MSP, SoW and Managed Projects sectors.

Like most great ideas, APSCo OutSource was launched to solve a problem. The outsourcing market has evolved exponentially over the last decade to become a highly sophisticated sector in its own right – a sector that is distinct from staffing, and that now has its own dedicated trade body representation.

Representing the interests of the outsource providers, we were developed from APSCo as a separate trade body which truly understands the differences between staffing and recruitment outsourcing and which specialises in your market. 

APSCo OutSource is led by Melanie Forbes. Melanie has been involved in the outsource market for over two decades most recently as Group MD of Rullion; MD of Managed Solutions at AMS and CEO of Guidant Global. She has been listed in the SIA Global Power 150 Women in Staffing every year between 2015 and 2019 and was also listed in the SIA European Staffing Top 100 in 2016, 2019 and 2020. Melanie also sits on the board of the Recruitment Industry Disability Initiative (RIDI) and can be contacted at [email protected]
