Legal & General

Overview

We've changed a lot since 1836. Back then, we focused solely on providing insurance for the legal profession. Today, we're one of the world's largest insurance and investment management organisation, with worldwide assets of $1 trillion. Whilst we've grown as a business, our determination to make a real difference to our customers' lives remains the same. 

 

Legal & General's aim is seeking out and investing in innovation across the business and continuously reviewing our products and the services we offer across insurance, savings, retirement and investment management. 

 

Vision

As part of this ongoing ambition and commitment we are embarking on an ambitious IT transformation programme, IT2020.

 

Joining L&G as part of the IT2020 vision you'll work with our Business Divisions and Strategic Partners to transform how we consume, deliver and develop our technology and address the challenges we currently face which will ensure:

 

 

- All the moving parts of the IT community synchronised to help the business move faster


- User experience – people's day-to-day experience of our IT service is digital


- Infrastructure is delivered as fast as we need and is as secure and resilient as we want

Implementation

Our approach to implementing the strategic vision above has been to define four 2020 Programme workstreams: 

 

New Workspace

Delivering a transformed user experience for our people. 

 

Service Integration

Building the in-house capability that will enable us to manage multiple suppliers well and with the tools to deliver greater control and ongoing service improvements. 

 

Hosting (Data Centre and Cloud)

Delivering radically improved agility and flexibility enabling agile delivery. 

 

Operating Model

Driving the development and implementation of new ways of working and building the right IT capability to serve Legal & General today and tomorrow.

Responsibility

By giving people the trust and responsibility to deliver results for the business as well as their careers, and by ensuring proper rewards for great performance, we've created a culture where your talent can really thrive. Are you looking for an environment that puts a Straightforward, Collaborative and Purposeful culture at it's very heart as the characteristics it seeks and builds success upon?

 

These behaviours are core across all parts of our organisation. Furthermore as a leader or future leader at Legal & General you can expect to see Ambition, Authenticity and Agility and a focus on great, timely decision making to help our organisation and services progress.

Future

Our vision is for a positive future for all. This means creating financial success and stability for everyone, from customers to investors – and, of course, for our colleagues too. We will achieve our vision partly through the products and services we offer; and partly by investing for growth in areas such as housing, infrastructure and urban regeneration. Internally we're making progress on a range of initiatives including D&I but we also know there is always more we can do.

 

We want to see more women in senior roles, encourage more people to continue their careers past retirement age, support more parents in returning to work and maintain and grow an environment where all people, whatever their age, race, religion, gender or sexual orientation, feel supported and able to thrive.
