About Hastings Direct
Starting your career at Hastings Direct gives you the chance to make your mark in an ambitious, rapidly growing and digitally driven business.
Founded in 1996 in Bexhill-on-Sea, East Sussex, we’re an agile, data and digitally focused general insurance provider to the UK market, offering a full range of car, van, bike and home insurance products.
It’s our attitude and the way we run our business that makes us different. Our data driven, digitally-focused business model enables us to remain agile, price effectively and to deliver refreshingly straightforward service and products for customers. All of our actions are based on our 4Cs way of doing things. We focus on getting it right for our colleagues, customers, company and community. It’s our colleagues who help drive our growth, so we give them all the support, training and development they need, as well as scope to tell us how they feel about life at Hastings Direct.
It’s a dynamic, flexible, fun and constantly changing environment, so it takes a certain kind of individual to thrive here - just ask any of our 3,300 colleagues. If you’re clearly a Hastings Direct person, you’ll enjoy the scope to make a real difference for our customers, influence our company, benefit the communities we work in and have some fun along the way!
Equality and Diversity
We encourage our people to be themselves in the workplace, because we respect diversity of thinking and know different perspectives strengthen the way we work. We regularly monitor the demographic and diversity of our colleagues at all levels. And our recruitment process is designed to attract and retain the best people from every background by celebrating differences and avoiding discrimination.
So, when you apply to work for us, you’ll find the recruitment and selection process reflects our values and beliefs. This means we’ll treat you with respect and dignity, bring out the best in you and allow you to be yourself. You’ll find it’s an approach that continues throughout your career with us.
In recognition of this, we were placed at no.29 in the 2021-22 Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers league table – the annual list produced by Inclusive Companies, an organisation that helps employers foster an inclusive environment that recognises and values the differences of each employee.
