As a result of strong growth, we have a brand new opportunity for a Technical Assistant to join our leading IT & Engineering Practice Group.
You will be involved in drafting and prosecution of UK, European and foreign patent applications while forging relationships with your clients who will range from multinational corporations, high growth SMEs and individual inventors, giving you a broad spectrum of interesting work.
Opportunities for career development and training make up a big part of our success. At GJE, we’ll support you to develop your skills and advance your career – and achieve success in your professional exams. You will gain experience in a full range of direct client work with intellectually and technically challenging subject matter, allowing a seamless transition into the Associate role.
We will help you to play to your strengths and develop in the areas that interest you, which will add value to the business and help us all to build upon its success. We recognise that not everyone has the same aspirations and even those who do may well have different routes to the end goal. So, whether you are natural at bringing in new business, have a passion for training less experienced colleagues, or you prefer the nuts and bolts of what being a patent attorney is all about, you are likely to find a place at GJE.
Our success is down to the people we employ
Our firm has a clearly defined strategic vision for where we are heading and an impressive track record to match. There are around 115 of us in our City office, so we’re small and friendly enough for you to get to know everyone – but big enough to offer you great career prospects.
We are looking to fit the role to the right person, rather than the person to the role. As such, we are happy to hear from part-qualified attorneys at all levels (whether you’ve recently completed your PGCert in Intellectual Property Law or are already at Finalist level). Ideally you will already have gained experience within telecommunications, electronics and computer-implemented inventions and will be looking to develop further in these technical areas.
As well as offering a competitive salary, a wide range of benefits and excellent career development awaits you at GJE.
