The first jobs for a new McDonald's restaurant on the outskirts of Ipswich have been advertised. 

So far, four jobs have been listed on hiring website Indeed.

Posts for full-time crew members and a maintenance person have been advertised. 

Work started on building the new McDonald's restaurant in the car park of Tesco at the Copdock Interchange back in August

In July 2021, Babergh District Council, the local authority for the area, approved an application from the fast food chain to build a new restaurant in the car park off the A1214. 

When the restaurant is open it will be the sixth operating McDonald's restaurant in the Ipswich area. 

A spokesman for McDonald's confirmed the new eatery will open early next year.

Although an exact date is yet to be announced, the spokesman said it is expected to be open in late January or early February.

Other fast food chains at the Copdock Interchange include Burger King, Costa Coffee and Tesco's in-store café.
