We are keen to hear from candidates with a background in Communications Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence or Physics. A specific interest held in mobile telecoms, communication and IT is desirable.

You may be a recent graduate or post-graduate, a trainee attorney already working in private practice or you may be in industry; in any case, you are ready for a new challenge!

Irrespective of your current experience, we will provide you all the necessary training to enable you to qualify as a UK Chartered Patent Attorney and European Patent Attorney. Working within Maucher Jenkins’ industry leading patents team at our London or Surrey (Farnham) office, our flexible trainee programme will provide you with all the necessary technical skills, experience and support required to enable you to succeed in your new role.
