Apprentice sushi makers are being sought at the UK's largest manufacturer of the seafood.
Working with West Suffolk College in Mildenhall, Ichiban - which means number one in Japanese - are looking for 12 people to help it produce its own label and branded sushi for the UK market.
The move has been brought about by the introduction of more innovative technology at the privately-owned firm's Earl Stonham factory, which means more staff are needed.
The new apprentices will be food process operatives and will gain experience in every operational department.
Once they have finished their apprenticeships, there will be opportunities for career progression within the company.
