The Ipswich office of regional professional recruitment specialist Pure is on the move.

Pure, which also has offices in Cambridge, Norwich and Chelmsford, has been operating from Queen Street in Ipswich for nearly 10 years.

However, its team in the town – now numbering 21 – has outgrown the site and is to relocate to nearby Princes Street.

Pure is taking over offices previously occupied by the Co-operative Bank which has made the reverse move, having relocated to the former Britannia Building Society site in Queen Street.

Paul Sheldrake, manager of Pure’s Ipswich office, said: “We were committed to staying in Ipswich when we were looking to find a new office space.

“The town has already seen significant growth due to the previous investment in the Waterfront area and the current town centre regeneration is set to boost that even further.”

He added: “Although we are technically only moving across the road, choosing to stay and continue our growth in the same area, is our vote of confidence in the town.

“Moving to an office on Princes Street will put us at the centre of the planned business corridor which has been marked out as part of the regeneration plans. It’s exciting times for us and for the town.”

Pure, which has launched a campaign to support 10 different local charities to mark its 10 years in Ipswich, expects to complete the move to Princes Street in May, with the Queen Street office remaining open until then.
