We have a clear career path for all our patent and trade mark attorneys, which is tailored to you individually. We will help you to play to your strengths and develop experience in areas that interest you, which will add value to the business and help us all to build upon its success. We recognise that not everyone has the same aspirations and even those who do may well have different routes to the end goal. So, whether you are natural at bringing in new business, have a passion for mentoring less experienced colleagues, or you prefer the nuts and bolts of what being a patent attorney is all about, you are likely to find a place at GJE.
Progressing your career
Our approach is to provide attorneys with broad ranging experience. This will give you the opportunity to try new things and work out for yourself what interests you, what you are good at and where you want your career path to lead. You will have lots of support to take on real responsibility and help you achieve your career goals.
What we look for in candidates
We look for high-calibre people who are passionate about what they do and are genuine collaborators who enjoy working with others and believe in openness and respect.
Communication skills are key. Offering clear and practical no-nonsense professional advice to our direct clients is a hallmark of the way we do business, enabling us to build trusted long-lasting relationships.
Relevant technical experience is, of course, essential.
Supporting your training and development
At the core of our learning environment is the coaching and on-the-job support that you can expect from our partners and senior members of staff. This is supplemented by relevant formal tuition which ensures that you have the relevant skills to deliver the quality of service our clients have come to expect of GJE.
