Hastings Direct Creates 110 New Jobs

29th June 2010

Bexhill-based insurers Hastings Direct urgently need to recruit 70 enthusiastic, outgoing and reliable new staff with good telephone voices from the Bexhill, Hastings and Eastbourne areas.

The new recruitment drive — 70 positions now and another 40 by Christmas — is to meet expansion from growing customer demand.

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

The starting salary is c£17,000 which includes an average monthly bonus payment of £300, but staff members who excel at selling regularly earn as much as an additional £2,000 a month.

Hastings Direct sells motor, bike, van and household insurance to the public. The company has enjoyed unprecedented growth — employing an additional 300 staff in the last 12 months alone, but more new roles are needed to service this growing business.

Murray Fox, Head of Motor Insurance: "We are a successful and fast growing business, as well as being a great place to work. If being on the phone talking to customers is something you think you would enjoy doing, we would love to hear from you. Personality and flexibility are as important to us as any previous experience."

For more information about current vacancies please visit Careers at Hastings Direct, call 0117 915 0380 or email your C.V. to hastingsdirect@resource-management.co.uk.
