In Digital Product and Marketing we’re passionate about the customer experience and look after everything that connects us to our customers, from intuitive and compelling digital tools and journeys, to our tone of voice in every customer touchpoint.
As Hastings Direct becomes an increasingly digitised business, our teams are at the heart of it all. We drive the change and ensure a high quality experience that makes a real difference for our customers.
We’re involved in a wide range of interesting and challenging projects, from developing new TV adverts, to creating digital capabilities on our website and a enhancing our market-leading app. This means we’re always on the lookout for people with a variety of creative and commercial skills.
Join us and you’ll play a vital role in enabling Hastings Direct to grow. By helping to improve how our customers view and experience Hastings Direct, you’ll not only add value to the business, but you’ll have plenty of opportunities to develop your skills and build a rewarding and enjoyable career.
We ensure customers know who we are, and why Hastings Direct is the better choice; we develop our brand communications strategy, our visual identity, and tone to deliver a consistent brand experience.
We’re responsible for delivering a market-leading customer experience when customers want to buy a new policy online – either through a PCW (price comparison website) or directly from our website. We use web analytic data and various research methods to help us understand why customers don’t buy and use this to drive changes that make their experience better, ensuring we drive the right commercial outcomes at the same time.
Our team is responsible for creating great app-first digital journeys to help our customers manage all their needs 24/7. This is key to Hastings becoming the best and biggest digital insurer.
We provide the business with a centre-of-excellence that defines, designs and validates digital solutions. We generate insight through user and market research and combine experience design with data and analytics to create brilliant digital products for our customers.
We’re responsible for communications at every point in a customer’s journey. This includes business-led and transactional communications, as well as marketing-led CRM (Customer Relationship Management) messaging. We make sure everything we write is in a clear and consistent tone of voice and our focus is to acquire, educate, grow, inform and retain our customers.
