Adastral Park near Ipswich is a fantastic place to work. I love the campus feel, the green spaces, the cyclist-friendly routes as well as the on-site leisure and sports facilities. It’s the kind of environment I’ve always wanted to work and thrive in.
Its long history with the Royal Air Force (RAF), revolutionary innovation and the many patents that have been realised from the BT Labs on site makes it such a unique technology hub. It has a very healthy ecosystem of companies and academia collaborating to develop cutting edge technology.
The park also gives back tremendously to the community and there’s always opportunities to take part and support these activities. We host science festivals, hackathons, technology conferences, and work experience days for young students. There’s also “Additude” – our Annual Music Festival on site that is attended by family and friends of staff including people in the local area. It’s always a funfair where we raise money to support our chosen charities while having some fun!
