Head of Property Services

The wide variety of work that I’d be exposed to, combine with the opportunities to progress, meant that I could really see myself at Hastings Direct. I love the fact that we operate in such a fast-moving environment and seeing how the business quickly adapts to change without being restrained. When I joined, I saw potential areas of improvement and hoped I'd be able to work with my team to ensure we achieve our aims, continuously improve and deliver excellent results. I wasn’t disappointed. Maybe that’s why we’ve earned a reputation as a department that gets things done.

Hastings Direct appealed to me because career development opportunities are important and I could see that they were very much on offer here. I enjoy being part of the property services team because we work in a collaborative culture and agile environment where we’re able to have a laugh as well as get the job done. Managing the facilities in the Bexhill-on-Sea office gives me a good scope of work. Work which has helped me develop my knowledge and skills through the various office improvement projects that I have been involved in.

Corey Creasey
Space Design and Planning Manager

Until I joined Hastings Direct, I had been a long-distance commuter. However, it wasn’t just the fact they were a local, large company that was doing well in their market that attracted me. They also offered me a role that was perfectly suited to my commercial design and architectural background.Property services is a fun, collaborative, reactive and fast-moving department that works closely with many different departments in the company, across all sites. That means my work schedule tends to be completely different each week, working on lots of exciting projects and looking at ways of improving the buildings and office environments. There’s always a new challenge to tackle.
