Legal and Governance at Hastings Direct

A high performing professional support function to the Group, ensuring an effective and efficient corporate governance and legal support framework for the business. 

An environment where inquisitive, analytical, pragmatic, insightful, commercial and solution-oriented people can thrive.

Being seen as an enabler rather than a blocker enables the team to provide practical, informed, and highly effective advice and guidance to our colleagues. Staying connected across all business operations ensures our advice remains relevant and valuable. 

A highly engaged and motivated team, working collaboratively with colleagues, constantly challenging itself and the business, we look for dynamic, articulate team players who take pride in their work, have an aptitude for a varied workload and can deliver to tight deadlines.

If that’s you, we’d like to hear from you!

Teresa King
Legal Assistant

In the Legal Team we have an extremely interesting and varied work load, but the best thing about Hastings is the people, it’s a very friendly working environment

Pamela Middleton
Head of Legal

Having worked in London as a lawyer, I wondered what it would be like to work in Hastings’ Head Office on the sunny south coast! I’ve not been disappointed – we provide legal advice to every part of the business which means the work is very varied as much as it is fast-paced. My colleagues across the business have energy, talent and focus and are genuinely great people who support each other. Join us and you too will see that there’s a great collaborative approach and energy working with our colleagues here at Hastings which makes our job in Legal enjoyable and fun!
