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. There are only a few more than 100 of us, so 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.
Supporting your training & development
Opportunities for career development and training make up a big part of our success.
Whatever your role, we’ll support you to develop your skills and advance your career. Our culture means you will receive clear feedback, direction and support to aid your professional development. We offer a range of learning opportunities relevant to the different roles within our firm, including external courses, webinars, workshops and internal training.
We encourage many of our support staff to study for the CIPA & ITMA administration qualifications and all our graduates undergo a comprehensive and highly rewarding training programme, leading to professional qualification.
Progressing your career
We promote creative thinking and collaboration so everyone can be involved in a variety of projects, contribute to the firm’s success and have their skills recognised. The firm is happy to give responsibility to individuals who want it. We challenge our employees from an early stage to carve out a career that will play to their individual strengths.
We have a diverse workforce yet we all share a vision and a set of core values. We keep everyone updated with what’s going on in the business and hold regular business updates for all staff, so you are always on top of the firm’s progress. We encourage our staff to think creatively and propose original ideas so everyone has a chance to make an impact.
As signatories of IP Inclusive, we are committed to improving equality, diversity and inclusivity in our community.
We are an equal opportunities employer and encourage applications from all suitably qualified persons irrespective of gender, age, disability, religion, belief, sexual orientation, marital status, or race.
Life at GJE
We are based in London’s Broadgate Tower where the edge of the City meets Shoreditch; we think it’s a great place to work and often take advantage of the area’s many venues for our social events. In 2018, GJE was the only IP firm to be awarded a star rating in the Sunday Times Best Companies Awards.
