Why consider joining us?

Whilst we believe we’re a great company to work with, we want you to invest a little bit of time getting to know us before deciding for yourself.

Our Purpose

For too long, law firms have been allowed to get away with offering a poor service at a high price.

Our purpose is simple; We’re putting the service back into legal services by offering excellent plain speaking legal support to businesses, delivered by a happy and fulfilled team of specialist experts.

 

Hybrid Working

The 2020 pandemic certainly put things into perspective for all of us. That’s why Hybrid Working is a fundamental part of our culture, enabling you to fit your working hours around your life. All of our team have the ability to mix up their working week from home, our office or at the client’s location.

Our Location

We are based in the heart of Hursley which is a quaint country village on the outskirts of Winchester. Our office is set against the backdrop of 110 acres of land that was once a stately home before being used as a technology and innovation centre for a global IT brand.

We are situated in a Grade II Listed converted stable block, that is also dog friendly. We have the following facilities available for you to use whenever you like:

• Café
• Microbrewery
• Clubhouse restaurant and bar
• Beautiful landscaped gardens
• 2 tennis courts
• Basketball court
• Fitness trail
• Woodland trail
• Ample parking

Our Values

  • Integrity – We do the right thing even when nobody is watching.
  • Credibility – We only offer services where we can honestly claim to be specialist experts. Services we’re truly excellent at. We’ll be the first to help our clients find another expert if it’s not something we can deliver value on.
  • Diversity – We have an inclusive team from all walks of life. Age, gender, nationality, disability and sexual orientation have no bearing whatsoever on who help form our team.
  • Charity – We support a number of local and national charities, particularly those in aid of helping ill and vulnerable children and their families.
  • Climate – We invest every month in climate projects around the world that are helping to remove atmospheric CO2 levels. You can read more about the projects we have funded here: ecologi.com/hybridlegal

Having Fun

The majority of us will spend most of our lives working, so making sure we have fun along the way is absolutely essential.

We regularly organise team Away Days where we might participate in things like indoor crazy golf, escape rooms, wine tastings and water park assault courses.

We also take it in turns to host a team breakfast meeting once a month. And we’ve had some pretty interesting breakfasts!

Small Team

If you’re looking to join a firm with a tall pyramid structure and countless departments, we’re not the firm for you.

As you’ll see from our ‘meet the team’ page, we don’t have a cast of thousands. Everyone joins us to work ‘with’ us not ‘for’ us. We treat our team like a family and value the opinions and ideas all of them bring to the table. Without them, our business wouldn’t exist.

This is a key part of our culture that we are determined to preserve, even as we grow.

Quality of Work

Regardless of your job role at Hybrid, you’ll experience a great deal of variety in the work you’ll be doing with us. This is driven by the diverse client base we have which spans a wide range of industries.
