Job Prospects in Ipswich

At the heart of Ipswich's economic success is its geographical location. The Suffolk county town is situated at the point the River Orwell joins the estuary leading to the North Sea. So it's not too surprising that its role as a distribution centre has led to the myriad of jobs employing the city's 130,000 residents. The port handles three million tonnes of cargo each year and the goods are distributed around the UK via the rail network or the key transport links of the A12 and A14. The other major port of Felixstowe is a short distance up the coast and London is just an hour away. It's estimated that one in four people in Ipswich are employed in the distribution industry - and many of the others are employed in support industries such as admin, finance and IT.
