Leading intellectual property firm Wynne-Jones IP has launched a nationwide search for the “most promising and talented” graduates to join its successful Training Academy.
The firm is searching for talented graduates to join the Wynne-Jones IP team and be part of its Training Academy programme from September 2019.
The Training Academy programme, which was launched in 2016, has so far proved to be hugely successful with four of the Academy having recently qualified as European Patent Attorneys, Chartered Patent Attorneys or Chartered Trade Mark Attorneys.
The latest intake of new recruits will undergo training in a diverse range of specialist modules which focus on intellectual property law, finance, business skills, and client relationship management.
Throughout the exam-based scheme, trainees will also be supported with workshops, tutorials and will receive expert industry support as they work towards qualifying as attorneys.
To kick-start the search for the 2019 intake, members of the IP firm will be heading to universities across the country from October, including Swansea, Cardiff, Birmingham, Bath, Bristol, and Oxford.
Martin Hyden, Senior Patent Attorney and Head of the Training Academy at Wynne-Jones IP said this was an “opportunity not to be missed” for graduates looking to start a rewarding and exciting career.
