There is an interesting mix of highly profitable work for leading multinational and national companies. It includes drafting of original patent applications, filing & prosecution of European, UK and foreign patent applications and contentious work.
The nature and quantity of the work available makes this an excellent opportunity for candidates with a desire to progress to business ownership over the short, medium or long term. For experienced candidates, the ability to acquire shares in the business may be available within 18 months. No client following is needed to achieve this.
The post is based at our head office in Derby city centre. We are moving to a hybrid working model in which our attorneys have the potential to work for up to two days from home.
Derbyshire is an attractive place to live for those seeking an urban, suburban or rural setting. It has some of the finest countryside in the UK, including the Peak District National Park. While the proportion of the workforce in Derby that operates in a hi-tech function is four times the national average, house prices remain very affordable relative to many other parts of the UK.
For direct applicants, a relocation allowance (or joining bonus) of up to £8,000 is available.
