26 Feb 2018

Local employer Hastings Direct is giving an insight into life at the general insurance provider by making its colleagues the ‘face’ of its new careers website and recruitment advertising.

With over 3,000 colleagues, Hastings Direct is thrilled to be showcasing the exceptional talent and profiles of colleagues from both its Bexhill and Leicester offices.

Showing they are ‘Clearly Hastings Direct’, colleagues from across the business will appear on advertising campaigns around Sussex and Leicestershire as well as on the website and Hastings Direct’s careers social media channels.

Sara Conway, Hastings Direct Procurement Buyer said, “I’ve worked at Hastings Direct for over six years and still enjoy coming to work every day. Hastings Direct has really supported my career and allowed me to explore new paths and even study for my CIPS qualification (Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply). I particularly enjoyed being a ‘Face’ of Hastings Direct as I was photographed with my daughter who also works for Hastings Direct, so a great opportunity for a proud Mum as well as a proud employee.”

Ethan Bain, Hastings Direct Customer Representative said; “I’ve enjoyed being part of the ‘Face of Hastings Direct’ campaign – particularly when friends and family tell me they have ‘spotted’ me on the website or a billboard! I’m proud to work for the company and the opportunities I have experienced in the last four years of working here.”

Hastings Direct is passionate about its colleagues and the Bexhill community and will be holding a Recruitment Open Day on Tuesday 6th March. At the event you’ll be able to find out what makes Hastings Direct such a great place to work. You’ll have the opportunity to find out more about the company, look around the contact centre, meet leaders and ask questions in an informal environment. There is also the option of attending a CV and interview workshop as well as a mini interview. There’s no need to book an appointment, just arrive at 3pm, 5pm or 7pm.
