APSCo launches new trade body for the Outsource Sector - Volt join as one of the Co-Founding Members.
Melanie Forbes has joined APSCo Global as Managing Director of a new trade body for outsourcing providers – APSCo Outsource – which has been developed from APSCo to represent the interests of MSP, RPO and recruitment outsource providers. 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 was 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).
“The outsourcing market has evolved exponentially over the last decade to become a highly sophisticated sector in its own right, “says Melanie, “a sector that is distinct from staffing, but, until now, had no distinct trade body representation. I’m incredibly proud to be leading this new trade body and I am looking forward to the journey.”
APSCo Outsource will act as the collective voice of the outsourcing market to lobby government on the impact of legislation and policy on the sector; create a peer-to-peer network to debate, discuss and share knowledge, produce research specific to the outsourcing market and provide a trusted badge of quality which will be recognised by end user clients as best in class.
Outsource already has over 20 founder members including Volt.
APSCo has been an exceptional industry partner who understands the nuances of the talent solutions market.
Volt are delighted to be joining and working closely with an industry body whose intention is so closely matched to ours.
