Meet some of our Digital & Marketing team

Ben Tomasetti
Digital & Marketing Director

I’d worked in the business before and had a number of friends still here. The combination of great people, a clear vision and a focus on getting the job done meant it was a no-brainer to come back. The thing I like best about working here is that we’re single-minded about creating positive change for our customers and continuously improving what we do. I really enjoy the open and honest culture, too - there’s none of the politics you often find in large organisations. It’s great having an on-site Costa too!

Daniel le Roux
Marketing Partnerships Performance Manager

My role involves analysing performance data from price comparison websites to understand the impact of our actions and find new opportunities. It’s a mixture of very numerical work and being able to explain the message behind the numbers to others. I love the sheer breadth and pace - we deal with over 150 million motor insurance quotes a year, so you can make a significant difference. Although our work’s time pressured and critical, we try to balance that out with social tasks. For example, last year we did the ‘Pier-to-Pier’ challenge, walking 16 miles from Eastbourne to Hastings to raise funds for a local charity.

David Norman
Senior Front-end Web Developer

I joined because Hastings Direct offered a combination of a great company ethos, opportunities for career progression, an attractive role and the perfect location for me. I could see it was developing at a rapid pace and wanted to be part of that. There are plenty of reasons why I’ve stayed for six years. My role’s creative, challenging and rewarding and I’ve progressed steadily. I also work with some great people and the business is continuing to perform consistently well. I think that’s down to the positive, professional, yet relaxed atmosphere - it makes for an enjoyable place to work.
