We offer a programme of training to take you right through to qualification as a patent attorney (European and UK Chartered). We support you with one to one mentoring, external courses, internal tutorials and on-the-job training. Our reputation for training and our record of first-time examination successes are second to none. We will continue to support your professional development throughout your career with the firm.
The academic requirements are rigorous. Candidates should have an excellent track record of achievement at school and university with a minimum of a 2.1 honours degree in a scientific or technical subject, preferably physics, an engineering discipline, computer science, electronics or materials science. We are open to applications from candidates holding or studying for a first or higher degree or doctorate. This year, we are particularly interested in applications from candidates with a background in computer science or materials science.
Excellent spoken and written English are essential to the role, as are an eye for detail and the ability to explain complex matters clearly. We are also looking for candidates who are proactive, outgoing and friendly, team players and good listeners.
