New graduates and part-qualified positions available.
We are seeking candidates who are looking to train to become a UK and European Patent Attorney to assist with a growing portfolio of work. Applications from graduates, candidates who are currently patent examiners (UKIPO or EPO) and candidates who have obtained an accredited Certificate in Intellectual Property Law or are otherwise part-qualified are all welcome.
Preferred candidates will have an excellent academic background in physics, engineering or a related field. Ideally, the candidate will have some knowledge of telecommunications. However, the right person is more important than specific experience.
This is an excellent opportunity to join a busy and friendly firm. Our modern approach and clear advice are appreciated by our clients and the recommendations we have received have led to an expanding workload.
We have a Bath office and a Southampton office. Candidates may apply to work at either office but will on occasion be expected to visit the other office.
A competitive salary is available to the successful candidate. There is also a discretionary staff bonus scheme.
Selection for roles will be based on individual merit alone. We welcome applications from all suitable candidates. Script IP is an Equal Opportunity Employer and we do not discriminate on the basis of age, disability, sex, race, religion or belief, gender, marriage/civil partnership, pregnancy/maternity, or sexual orientation.
