Trainee Patent Attorney – Mechanical Engineering
Adamson Jones is a successful firm of patent and trade mark attorneys, which has grown steadily from a single-practitioner firm to a team of ten attorneys. We recruit high calibre personnel and provide a level of service that consistently exceeds clients’ expectations.
Our principal office is located within BioCity, Nottingham’s healthcare and bioscience innovation centre, close to the city centre. We opened an office in Leicester city centre in 2017 with a focus on handling engineering technologies. As a result of the growth of that office, we are now looking for a trainee patent attorney, with a first degree in mechanical engineering or a related subject, to work with mechanical technologies and to continue their training to become a UK and European patent attorney.
The position will be based in Leicester, with up to one day a week at our Nottingham office.
Our clients range from small start-ups and established private companies to multinational corporations. Our work is mainly for direct clients in the UK, but with a healthy mix of diverse incoming work from overseas patent attorneys. For our trainees, this means that there is a significant variety in both the technology and the type of professional work to be undertaken.
We work as a team, and are committed to excellence in the work that we do. We seek people who share those values: high calibre individuals with a record of academic achievement, who can contribute to the continuing growth of our business.
Our objective is continued steady growth over the coming years. We believe in treating people well, providing flexible working arrangements and other benefits, and when we find the right people we aim to retain them. Long-term prospects for those who join the firm are therefore excellent.
Candidates should note that, even where applicants hold a higher degree, we expect applications to contain full details of academic history, including GCSE and A-level subjects and grades, and class of first degree awarded.
