Other Roles

J A Kemp recruits patent and trade mark attorneys as required to grow the firm and meet our clients’ needs. Opportunities to join us in other roles also arise on an ad hoc basis.

We would not be able to provide excellent service to our clients without a strong team of committed individuals in a variety of business support roles. These include Finance, HR, Marketing, IT, Facilities, Business Intelligence and Business Process roles. Usually recruitment into our business support team is driven by operational requirements. We are open to speculative approaches, but if the timing is not right there may not be an opportunity for you. Most business support roles are based in our London office.

We have a large Formalities team whose activities are at the core of our service delivery to the firm’s clients. The work of the team encompasses the processing of incoming mail and docketing of client instructions, European Grant and Address for Service procedures, instructing foreign agents to act on behalf of our clients and handling patent and trade mark renewals. Because of the specialised nature of Formalities work, we are pleased to hear from strong candidates who may wish to be considered for suitable vacancies as and when they arise.

We have paralegals in various parts of the firm. Each of our paralegals has a different role, reflecting the part of the business that they support and the particular skills and experience that they bring to bear. We usually recruit paralegals to fill specific needs within the business, but we are interested to hear from strong performers who are highly motivated to join our firm.

We have a large and strong secretarial team. Many of our secretaries have been recruited as trainees in recent years and have grown into the role at our firm. We sometimes need to fill vacancies with experienced secretaries and we usually require them to have prior experience of working in an IP firm.

If you wish to make a speculative approach to the firm for any role, you should email careers@jakemp.com. Please include a CV and covering letter addressed to our Head of HR, Tracy Crandon.
