Hastings Direct announces 200 new vacancies

17th August 2011

Insurance broker Hastings Direct, one of the three largest employers in East Sussex, has just announced it has 200 vacancies to fill — including 100 new jobs. The company is one of the UK's fastest growing brokers — nearly doubling in size in the last two years.

Hastings Direct has opportunities in a variety of functions including sales, customer operations, customer experience, marketing, IT, claims, underwriting, facilities and management information departments.

Over half of the roles are in our customer facing areas; the starting pay is circa £17,000 which includes an average monthly bonus payment of £300, but staff members who excel at selling can earn up to an additional £2,000 a month.

The new jobs are full-time equivalents and the company would be happy to consider job share or part time workers, which may suit mums, dads, students, retirees and anyone wishing to earn extra income across a variety of shifts, which include evenings and weekends. All applicants must be aged over 18.

Hastings Direct sells motor, bike, van and household insurance to the public. The company has enjoyed unprecedented growth — employing an additional 150 staff this year alone, but more new roles are needed to service this growing business.

Amanda Menahem, HR Director: "Whilst we are a fast growing company, over a quarter of our staff has more than five years' service. We invest heavily in our staff because Hastings Direct is a great place to work, where people can build their careers with us. We have been nationally recognised for our investment in people and employee engagement and over 90 percent of our staff who are eligible own shares in the company."
