Rebecca Shipham

Rebecca has been self employed since 2010, working as an Exhibition Designer. Initially starting as a freelancer, Rebecca now runs a busy design studio, Ships & Pigs Ltd, employing her own freelancers either remotely or in-house.

Rebecca is also a director of a Community Interest Company, which inspires young people, sets them live design briefs for real clients, and embeds life skills needed to run a business within each project. Some older students have since gone on to freelance for Rebecca as part of her main business.

Rebecca has been an IPSE member since 2014. She is passionate about giving young people a change in a very competitive and demanding industry, giving regular freelancing tips to young people in her local area to encourage them into self-employment.
