Why Work in Ipswich

Ipswich’s employment rate was higher than anywhere in the rest of the East of England, according to figures released in September 2023.

The job market and career opportunities are many and varied, with the town is a popular office base of choice for large insurance and legal firms, as well as IT, communications, web development and creative firms in addition to essential local government public services and health professionals.

There is also a huge choice of shared office space for co-working around the town centre, the outskirts and near to the waterfront. With a strong education offering, there is the potential for personal and professional growth for career development, training and professional workshops to enhance career prospects.

The Port of Ipswich has links to Felixstowe and Harwich so hauliers, haulage firms, logistics, distribution hubs and delivery companies thrive in the Ipswich area.

The town centre is also home to many independent shops and is one of the Top 10 places in the UK to visit for unique stores, so is a great place to start a new retail business.

Leading employers in the town include Willis Tower Watson, Axa, Ipswich Borough Council, Suffolk County Council, Ipswich Town Football Club, plus may legal and insurance professionals at top firms with an office in the town.
