Crowned Legal Department of the Year by Legal Week as well as Company Secretarial Team of the Year by the ICSA, our Legal and Secretariat (L&S) function is at the heart of our commercial success. Working in L&S, you’ll play a central role in empowering business success and we’ll empower you to excel in your career.

High profile and highly valued, the L&S function at LV= has a fundamental role in the on-going success and growth of the organisation. Knowledgeably supporting all areas of the business, their work spans from close involvement in strategic projects, advising the Board on corporate governance matters, through to the provision of day–to-day legal advice to the business. If you thrive on variety and interesting challenges in your career, this is the perfect place for you.

Legal. United under a vision to be at the heart of commercial success, development is taken very seriously in Legal and there are clear objectives in place to promote continual improvement. The working environment here is one of trust, empowerment and close teamwork. People in Legal are viewed as pragmatic business advisors and encouraged to build close, meaningful relationships with key stakeholders and gain a deep understanding of the regulatory environment that we work in. As we’re an innovative, fast-growing organisation, joining Legal you’ll enjoy exposure to our highest profile projects. These could include anything from supporting acquisitions and other strategic change initiatives, negotiating £multi-million commercial contracts through to advising on key areas such as employment law, intellectual property, data protection and competition law.

It’s a great opportunity to make a real impact as you’ll be advising senior stakeholders and working across an impressive remit of work. Here, your role will be immensely well-respected as your advice helps us continue to expand and thrive as an organisation.

Group Company Secretariat. Working in Group Company Secretariat, every day is different. Here, we provide professional support and advice to the Board and the business on ‘best in class’ corporate governance – hence our motto, ‘Partner to the Business, Partner to the Board’. The role of the Secretariat team covers so much more than just administration of Board & Committee meetings (of which there are over 100 each year). We ensure compliance with all applicable corporate legislation and regulation, including the Listing Rules, as well as the Group’s constitution, internal rules and governance practices, which we keep regularly reviewed and updated.

Secretariat is a vital bridge between the Executive Management and the Board of Directors. As a result, working here means you have an opportunity to advise and influence at the very highest levels of the LV= Group. You’ll be encouraged and supported to develop professional qualifications in company law and corporate governance. For someone with talent, ambition and drive, who’s willing to work hard, the Secretariat team offers fantastic opportunities to build a great career in a fast-growing, current and rewarding profession.
