1066jobs.com is an exciting new on-line jobs board promoting employment and training advice in Hastings and Rother launched this week.

1066jobs.com provides local business with a new platform for recruiting staff.

1066Jobs.com is part of the award-winning BrightonandHoveJobs.com, the leading employment website for the region, founded in 2010 by Gary Peters, and which is credited for making a positive difference to the economy of Brighton and Hove.

He said: “The strength of 1066Jobs.com sits in our partnership structure, bringing together key local employers and education providers to create a highly effective and affordable jobs board and a superb resource for advice on employment, skills and training.

“Our pan-Sussex reach allows us to target tens of thousands of candidates on behalf of hundreds of businesses and organisations, not only to offer jobs but also to highlight the numerous fund-raising and volunteer opportunities that exist.

“The core aim of 1066Jobs.com is to benefit the local economy by working hand in hand  with the local community and our partners. We are incredibly excited to be bringing our unique approach to the employment sector of Hastings and Rother.”

Dan Shelley, Vice Principal Enterprise, Employment and Skills at Sussex Coast College Hastings, said: “Sussex Coast College is proud to be a founding partner of 1066jobs.com as it provides a cost effective way of better linking employers seeking staff with local people looking for work.

“With so many uses, 1066jobs.com really is more than a jobs board. The College supports over 5000 local people gain skills and qualifications each year and we feel that the site will be invaluable resource to this incredible talent pool, be they young people looking for their first job, an unemployed adult seeking a new opportunity or a career changer looking for a new challenge.

“1066jobs.com will plug a gap locally with a cost effective solution for employers to advertise their vacancies. As a major employer in the area, with nearly 400 employees, we also see the site as a critical resource for us to recruit local, talented people. By linking these two audiences together the site will ensure that more people find out and apply for local jobs – and that can only be good for the local economy.”

1066Jobs.com is different in many ways from other job boards. Employers can post job vacancies for only £99 + vat which are then advertised for 28 days, helping businesses reduce recruitment costs.

Candidates can search the job board free of charge and apply directly for the job opportunities that are advertised because posts include details of the recruiter.

1066Jobs.com will also deliver the same Charity Initiative scheme that has proved so successful in Brighton and Hove. The scheme works by supporting a number of chosen local charities by offering free job posts and advertising and help with fundraising activities.

Construction has started on the next major regeneration project in Hastings town centre. The scheme – named Havelock Place – is now under way in the Priory Quarter business district in Hastings town centre.


Hastings office space continues to grow.

Havelock Place will comprise 24,192 sq ft of high quality offices over five storeys. The property is being developed to attract expanding companies in the area and secure significant jobs, with the capacity to accommodate over 350 employees.

Vinci Construction will be building the scheme on behalf of East Sussex economic development company, Sea Change Sussex.  It is next to One Priory Square, the recently completed 44,883 sq ft, six-storey office development which is now fully occupied by Saga. The site is also very close to Hastings rail station, the local college and university campus and the town centre amenities.

Vinci started construction with initial piling work this week to set the foundations for Havelock Place. The firm expects to complete the building project by summer 2014.

Sea Change is already in discussions with potential occupiers and is inviting further pre-let enquiries.

The regeneration company could let the whole building to a single occupier, or let separate offices ranging from a 1,353 sq ft ground floor unit to floors of up to 4,550 sq ft.

The Havelock Place scheme has been designed by Proctor & Matthews Architects to have several distinct architectural elements.

A layered masonry façade with colonnade will run along Havelock Road. The predominant material up to third floor level will be brick with perforated panels. The upper two storeys will be stepped back in the form of a glazed pavilion.

Sea Change already has plans to follow this project with the development of a further, adjoining 37,000 sq ft office building as more businesses come to the area.
