About the Company

This business is the proud custodian of high profile consumer brands well-loved and highly respected around the globe. The company’s ethos is one of embracing life, as much as possible, at all times. 

About the Opportunity 

Although the business is well-known as a brands business, the current need is a unique opportunity for an IP lawyer to join and lead on the company’s patent agenda, providing specific support to new inventions. The business is constantly innovating in sustainability and in reducing its carbon footprint in relation to manufacturing and needs dedicated legal support to protect its trade secrets. The role will work closely with technical experts in the business, advising on R&D and collaboration agreements as well as enforcing IP protection.

About You

A strong IP background with excellent knowledge of patents is essential. The ability to work collaboratively with scientists and technical experts is also key. Strong relationship development skills and the ability to work on complex IP matters in a commercial way is also essential. The role is a blank canvas and a genuine opportunity to come in and shape the role and this function and to create an agenda in relation to IP protection for a truly global business. The position will suit an individual who has worked with a business highly committed to R&D. Given the nature and complexity of the IP work involved, industry experience in FMCG, healthcare, electronics or life sciences could all work well.

This is a rare and unique opportunity for an experienced patents lawyer to join a highly respected FMCG business in a new and key role for the business.
