Hastings Direct — one of the UK's fastest growing personal insurance providers — has now recruited over 150 employees for its new city centre office, with plans to recruit a further 200 by the end of the year.
Currently employees are based at the Equinox tower, before Hastings' moves to its permanent site at St George's Way in January 2016.
Andrea Gray, Leicester Operations Director added: "We are on track with recruitment and the range of roles is attracting a cross section of applicants, from school-leavers, graduates, those looking to progress their careers and the more mature. Our roles also offer employment flexibility, with both part time and full time opportunities. Our business is based on being refreshingly straightforward and this extends to our culture, helping us attract talented individuals from Leicester and the surrounding areas."
Hastings also provides personal lines insurance products (car, home, bike and van) online and from its other UK customer service centres based in Bexhill-on-Sea and Newmarket. The multi award winning company has 1.8 million customers, and its ambitious expansion plan is on track to insure one in ten of all UK car drivers by 2020, raising its customer numbers to three million.
