He said: “I’m keen to ensure steady investment in the area and I’m very pleased to be able to offer exciting employment opportunities through the creation of 80 jobs in the Mildenhall and Barton Mills area.
“Investing in the development of our staff is at the core of our business, ensuring our staff have a good learning ladder of opportunities ahead of them not only benefits their careers but also helps us deliver consistently high levels of customer service.”
