Less than a month after announcing that it was recruiting 150 new staff, Hastings Direct is looking for a further 150 employees to fill new positions across the company.

The insurer was acquired from Insurance Australia Group in a management buyout earlier this year, since when it has begun an ambitious programme of expansion.

Last month the group acquired Renew Insurance Services Limited, a Newmarket-based firm that specialises in a range of cover for the over 40s via its Renew brand and provides for younger customers with its Likewise brand.

Also in May, Hasting announced plans to develop a High Street presence, initially opening three outlets in a pilot phase.

Hastings Directs chief executive, Edward Fitzmaurice, says: “2009 has started off as a great year for us, particularly in light of the difficult economic climate – the company is really heading in the right direction. Our recent augmentation has meant that we need additional people to help grow the business and take Hastings Direct to the next level.”
