Ambition Ipswich


Ipswich is one of England's fastest growing and diverse regional centres and offers a fantastic opportunity to live and work in one of the most exciting places in the country.

It has a rich history and heritage, a Waterfront offering a new university and café culture, a wide range of arts festivals, events and cultural facilities, a strong IT and financial sector, a growing port, beautiful parks, good schools and a town that is surrounded by unspoilt countryside and close to the Suffolk coast.

Ipswich Borough Council has an ambitious Corporate Plan, Building a Better Ipswich, and works collaboratively with partners to deliver the "Ipswich Vision". The stunning new-look Cornhill, the county town's main square, is testament to its ongoing success.

A forward-thinking approach at the Borough Council is enabling us to fulfil our potential. We are innovative and commercially focused, with a group of trading companies helping us to deliver our medium-term financial plan, new homes and a stronger commercial property portfolio.

We provide a wide range of good quality services to around 60,000 households, more than 147,000 residents and a travel to work population of almost 300,000.

We offer a great quality of life, exciting careers, plenty of development and an opportunity to shape the future. That is why we call it Ambition Ipswich.
