Patent Secretary role £25k-£30k per annum based in Central Cambridge

Your new company
Our client is a modern highly successful and vibrant firm specialising in the field of Patent & Trade Marks.

Your new role

With their HQ in London they have an established and growing office in Cambridge where they now have an opportunity for a Patent secretary.
You will be primarily supporting 2 attorneys but assisting with the wider group of attorneys, with all things secretarial, where necessary.
Some of the duties for this role include, but are not limited to:·

  • Updating and amending records accordingly on internal database
  • Performing various secretarial tasks including billing, digital dictation and audio transcription typing duties
  • Liaising with the records department regarding deadlines and fee earner amendments (including file openings)

  • Managing travel arrangements, diary management and booking business/client meetings

What you'll need to succeed
The department seeks highly organised individuals who enjoy the day to day pressures of IP work and who are keen to take on an active role. The ideal candidate will be knowledgeable and used to dealing with fee-earner deadlines, as well as managing and processing their own related workload. Good patents knowledge and experience is therefore an essential requirement for this role, as the candidate will be expected to provide key secretarial/formalities support to fee-earners. If you are an experienced Patent secretary with confidence in Formalities and Records processes we'd like to hear from you.
