I've been involved in a number of hires for them over the last few years. I can honestly say that people who work there love it and will echo how highly I regard them.

I'll tell you a bit more about them…

They invest in novel research opportunities and transfer these to business opportunities. Committed to contributing to a sustainable future, they identify creative and innovative solutions to address key global challenges; in areas such as energy, healthcare and food.

This is an opportunity for a Scientific Patent Analyst to join the IP team. Working closely with key stakeholders, you will be responsible for identifying start-up companies to partner with. The role will involve developing, performing, and analysing comprehensive IP landscapes and other types of IP searches such as patentability, FTO and validity searches.
