The pandemic has made us all look at the paths we took in life and question whether we made the right choices.
Months of enforced isolation has given us time to take stock of our lives and look at what is actually important, what makes us happy and what we want to change.
For some that has been starting a new business and others relocating to a more rural area now they can work from home.
If the pandemic has made you reconsider your career choice, and left you wishing you had followed a more creative route that would allow you to meet new people every day, use your writing talents to engage readers and delve into the issues which impact your community then our team at Archant Suffolk could help.
We are looking for someone keen to get into media industry - be it someone who has not had the opportunity to study journalism, or someone who is looking for a new vocation.

We have a vacancy in our busy Ipswich newsroom for someone who knows and loves Ipswich and the rest of Suffolk, and wants to learn about political reporting, court coverage, and community news.
