Administrator / Paralegal

Greaves Brewster LLP is a vibrant firm of Patent & Trade Mark Attorneys, committed to providing an outstanding service to clients and a happy working environment for staff. 

We are now looking for a full-time administrator/paralegal to join our Professional Support team in Cheddar, Somerset.

  • assisting patent attorneys with case work & diary management
  • corresponding with clients and overseas patent attorneys
  • filing documents at the European Patent Office and UK Intellectual Property Office using Epoline software
  • preparing invoices using our document and case management systems
  • preparing and amending documents
  • answering the phone.

The successful candidate will be a team player who demonstrates:

  • an organised, methodical approach to their work
  • an eye for accuracy
  • excellent written communication skills
  • a high level of numeracy
  • confident use of standard office IT packages
  • an ability to absorb new information.

Previous experience of patents or trade marks is not essential but of advantage. Support to qualify as a CIPA Patent Administrator will be provided.

Salary from £23,000, dependent on experience and qualifications.

Please send your CV and a covering letter to apply.

Closing date for applications is Monday 15 April 2019.
