Celebration evening marks the official opening of Pure’s new Ipswich office
Professional recruitment specialists Pure extended its Suffolk Day celebrations by hosting a special event on Thursday (22 June) to mark the official opening of its new Ipswich office.
Pure invited clients and local people to join them for an evening of canapes and drinks to celebrate its move to new, larger offices at the heart of the town’s regeneration area. The 21-strong Ipswich team are now located on Princes Street in the building which was previously the Co-operative Bank.
Paul Sheldrake, Senior Manager at Pure’s Ipswich office, said: “We’d like to thank everyone who came along to celebrate with us. After months of hard work to completely transform the building, followed by the busy period of moving in, we’ve been waiting for the chance to really show off our fantastic new home. It seemed apt for the event to become an extended celebration of our activities to mark the first ever Suffolk Day, designed to celebrate everything which is fantastic about this county including its local businesses.”
The regional recruitment agency, which also has offices in Cambridge, Norwich and Chelmsford, had previously been situated in Ipswich’s Queen Street for nearly a decade. Having grown significantly over the last ten years, the team needed to move to larger premises but remained committed to staying in the town which is currently undergoing an extensive transformation.
Paul added: “These are exciting times for Ipswich and we are proud to be a part of it. Our office looks fantastic, and it proudly celebrates Pure’s culture and values. More importantly it has provided us with the space and location needed for us to continue supporting businesses to attract and retain high calibre employees and to help more people find their next exciting step on the career ladder. With Ipswich predicted to be among the top five UK places for economic growth this year, we need to be in the best position to fulfil our purpose of contributing to the economic growth of our region and to making a difference to people’s lives.”
