Over recent years our client base has grown significantly. We’ve also transitioned to a paper-light office and trained our secretarial staff up to CIPA Patent Administrator qualification. We are now looking to add more capacity within our Records department, which handles the vital core of deadline management, renewals and validations. Our flexible structure means we can accommodate a talented individual of any level of experience. A more senior candidate would be involved in (or could even take overall charge of) managing, planning and coordinating the Records & Formalities functions of the firm, whereas a more junior candidate might start off by assisting with day-to-day Records tasks, validation and renewal work. You will be supported by our experienced Records staff and a dedicated Systems Developer familiar with customising and building upon our Patricia records system. 

Essential qualifications, skills and attributes include:

  • Excellent knowledge of IP formalities and administration
  • CIPA Patent Administrator qualification 
  • Good communication skills

Knowledge of Patricia records system would be desirable. For a more senior role, we would look for one or more of:

  • Familiarity with configuration of IP records systems
  • Project management experience
  • Line management experience
  • Experience of change management, design of workflows
  • Experience of training others

Our main office is in Cheddar, surrounded by beautiful countryside. It’s an easy commute from Bristol or Bath (against the flow of traffic). Our technology allows flexible working, though this role is likely to require an on-site presence most of the time.
