Who our client is looking for

An excellent salary is on offer from the offset, as well as a discretionary Christmas bonus and the firm’s full package of employee benefits which includes their healthcare cash plan, holiday buy/sell scheme, a generous sabbatical policy, and more.
Qualification as a Chartered UK & European Patent Attorney involves passing several sets of examinations, and our client provides a comprehensive package of support for their Trainees through the process. They will pay for you to attend courses, lectures, and tutorials which are organised by the Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys (CIPA). In addition to this, they have their own in-house tutorial system to prepare Trainees for both the UK and European qualifying exams. Our client’s patent professionals know how to help and you won't be on your own.
The main focus of training, however, is exposure to a great variety of work on actual live cases under the supervision of a qualified Attorney. Our client gives their trainees real responsibility early on, and you should expect to be making a significant contribution to client work within the first year.
