Gill Jennings & Every LLP (GJE) is one of the UK’s leading intellectual property firms and is consistently recognised by the leading UK legal directories, Chambers, Legal 500 and Managing Intellectual Property as a ‘go-to’ firm. Our success is down to the people we employ, who, above all, are engaged in our business and committed to our success. With roughly 130 of us, we’re small and friendly enough for you to get to know everyone – and big enough to offer you a broad range of interesting work and great career prospects.
Why work for us?
Because you will have an interesting and exciting career, right from the start. Our culture is friendly, inclusive, supportive and collaborative, and within this environment you receive excellent training and support, and take on real responsibility. Our structured training programme will provide you with a year of on-the-job learning before enrolling you for the Postgraduate Certificate in Intellectual Property Law. Ultimately you will aim to qualify as both a European Patent Attorney and a Chartered (UK) Patent Attorney.
We assist you in these studies through in-house training, mentoring and coaching from senior attorneys while exposing you to a diverse range of cases and clients to help you become a well-rounded patent attorney. We challenge our employees from an early stage to carve out a career that will play to their individual strengths.
Alongside a range of great benefits and perks, we offer a competitive salary, reviewed annually, as well as upon exam success.
What we are looking for
Top academic results, including a first class or 2:1 degree in a relevant subject, are a must, but we are not just looking for academic success. The ability to think creatively, to ask questions and to develop and articulate solutions are just as important. We want graduates who demonstrate a passion for science or engineering and can contribute to the continued development of our business.
