Legal and Governance at Phoenix Group
If you're a well-organised team player and confident communicator who’s looking for lots of opportunities to get involved across all areas of a business, we think you’ll like it here. Responsible for identifying and managing legal risk within the Group, as well as engaging and managing external lawyers, the Legal and Governance team are trusted advisers to the entire Phoenix Group.
The Group is continuously evolving, acquiring new businesses and developing our existing ones, so our working environment is challenging and rewarding too, with every day bringing something new.
Our Legal and Governance Teams
Based in our London office, the Group Legal team advises the Boards of Phoenix Group Holdings and Phoenix Life Holdings Limited, as well as other subsidiary holding companies, on a whole range of issues. Corporate governance matters, Listing Rules, the Companies Act, external and internal financing and Merger and Acquisitions activities – we provide professional advice in all of these areas, and more.
Based mainly in our Wythall office, the Life Legal team advises the Boards of our Phoenix Life companies, as well as service companies, on matters like outsourcing, procurement, life and pensions and disputes. We also provide support for the Group’s Merger and Acquisitions activities.
Group Company Secretariat
Our team provides high quality services to the Boards and Board Committees of Phoenix Group Holdings and its subsidiaries. We also ensure that statutory filings are made, records kept in line with legislation and that the business is compliant with stock exchange regulations and the UK Corporate Governance Code. And, when it comes to addressing corporate governance issues or managing the Group’s insurance arrangements, again, the business relies on us to deliver.
Sarah Gormley,Head of Legal Operational Excellence.
When I joined Phoenix, I was looking for some experience in commercial contracts with an in-house legal team and the role was too good an opportunity to miss. I’ve had a number of roles since then and over the years I’ve been able to work on complex and interesting projects and help all aspects of the business.
One of the things I value most is the focus on development and engagement of our staff. I’ve been lucky enough to take advantage of what Phoenix has to offer and progress my career.
