Relevant to the entire outsourcing community 

At the GSA we are focused on broad industry involvement, as such we have extended our membership levels to encourage the fullest participation possible – not just from the UK, but from around the globe.

Which membership level is right for me?

The following FAQs will hopefully point you in the right direction.

Does your company wish to raise its profile through its membership?

If yes, you will require corporate or SME membership depending on the size of your global company (not just your UK division).

What’s the difference between corporate and premier membership?

Our premier members are companies who commit to working with the GSA-UK executive on collaborative campaigns. Premier members work closely with us and the GSA-UK Council and benefit from a range of profiling opportunities depending on the specific campaign/s they sign up to.

Our company is an end user of outsourcing. Do we pay for membership?

The GSA-UK currently offers a Basic Membership to end user companies which is free of charge. This provides end users with free attendance at GSA-UK monthly events, and some other free services.

If you would like to have full access to our Knowledge Centre as well as other benefits, you should choose the Professional Membership.

Please note many suppliers are also end-users. Basic Buyer Membership is only granted to buy-side contacts within companies.

If you would like to discuss the benefits that membership to the GSA-UK will provide your organisation please contact the GSA-UK team on: +44 (0) 207 292 8686.
