General manager Alex Paul said: “We are delighted that the business is going from strength to strength and to ensure that we continue to provide excellent-customer service, we wish to increase our team of local staff.

“Visitors to Suffolk support the local economy, and our staff are proud to pass on their knowledge and love of Suffolk to our visitors.

“We expect to have had over 30,000 people (adults and children) stay in our holiday properties by the end of this calendar year.

“We have also seen a significant growth in the number of people that visit our websites each year, with our statistics indicating that the Suffolk Secrets website will have received over 400,000 visits during this calendar year”.

He added: “There is also a growing interest in our website’s tourist information pages which feature local businesses, attractions and events including the Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival and The Southwold Ways with Words Literature Festival.

“By expanding our workforce, we can continue to promote Suffolk as a fantastic holiday destination and to provide a professional service to our clientele”.
