It has been my privilege to serve as CEO to APSCo (previously ATSCo) for over 15 years now. In that time I’ve seen it grow into a powerful, energetic and influential force in the world of Professional Staffing without ever losing close contact with its membership. We are a trade body that wants to get to know our members inside out so that we can better support their ambitions and plans and get to know the people that make it happen.
APSCo members seem to share a drive for success married with an excellent sense of humour and inexhaustible capacity for networking and socialising. This makes my job hugely enjoyable, if a little tiring at times!
But when I look back over each year’s activities I am always amazed by what we have achieved. Take last year for example – 72 member meetings across the UK, another fantastic charity ball, and significant input into government legislative consultation around the Agency Workers Directive.
