This is an excellent opportunity to join a busy and friendly firm. Our modern approach and clear advice is appreciated by our clients and the recommendations that we receive has led to an expanding work load. Our second office was opened last year in Southampton.

We are now seeking a candidate who has either obtained the Certificate in Intellectual Property Law or is a part qualified CPA/EPA. The candidate will have an excellent background in Life Sciences to assist with a growing portfolio in molecular biology and immunology. The ability to occasionally handle simple chemical subject matter would be an advantage. The work includes original drafting, UK/EP/worldwide prosecution and EPO oppositions. There will be exposure to a good mix of clients.

Ideally, the candidate will have a PhD in a relevant field. Some research or commercial experience would be preferred although the right person is more important than specific experience.

Some of our Directors are EQE Examiners, EQE A/B tutors and FD4/P6 tutors and can assist the successful candidate in their training.

Occasional visits to our office in Frome, near Bath, will be required as necessary (at Script IP's expense).  There will be opportunities for occasional travel, including overseas.

A competitive salary is on offer and the successful candidate will be welcomed into a happy and progressive environment.
