MORE jobs are coming to Ipswich as a leading London-based stockbroking firm expands its operation in the town.

Killik & Co, which offers stockbroking and financial planning services, has decided to expand its operation in the town, increasing the workforce from 30 to 70.

Its main administration centre has been based in Crown House, Crown Street, for four years and its specialist trustee arm and tax team are also based in Ipswich.

Gary Wilkins, executive director in charge of the development, said: "We are delighted to be able to expand our offices in Ipswich.

"The decision to commit long-term to the town is based on our experience over the last four years, where we have seen the town go through a period of development to become a major centre for administration, financial services and hi-tech industries.

"The town has the necessary mix of infrastructure, with good rail links to London, lifestyle facilities, as well as a highly motivated local workforce what makes it easy to attract the high calibre staff that Killik & Co requires to drive the planned expansion."
