A specialist in intellectual property jobs and career advice, IP Careers has developed a unique partnership with CIPA in order to produce the only official graduate career guide to Chartered Patent Attorneys in print and online. Moving forward, IP Careers have also been developing a new relationship with the Chartered Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys.

Our aim is to provide students with high quality, structured career information written by industry experts that is both impartial and independent.

Professional bodies and industry experts help to provide and approve our articles, ensuring that the guide offers the most authoritative information available.

Central to our careers information getting into the hands of relevant students are careers staff who have shared our resources. You can read what your colleagues have said about us on our testimonials page.
