***  Intellectual Property Administrator  ***

We are looking for a wonderwoman or wonderman to help take our filing practice to the next level.

Working with a team of lawyers you will be responsible for the administration of the registered rights (trade marks, designs, patents) that we manage: approx. 6,000+ data records. While experience would be an advantage it is not required as the successful candidate will receive full in-house training and the opportunity to take professionally recognised qualifications appropriate to the role.

Essential wonderwoman/man skills and personality traits will include: excellent communication skills with ordinary mortals, an ability to use the level of IT technology to which the earth has advanced to date, an x-ray like attention to detail, superhuman patience, organisational and time management skills, and a high level of initiative but not such as to make mere mortals suspicious and all the while maintaining an aura of positivity, a Pollyanna-like sunny disposition and an ability to work in a team of the Earthlings.

Omnilingualism, ability to leap tall buildings and a tight fitting sparkly costume and tiara optional.

In return we offer the usual Briffa benefits of cake on Friday, the odd jolly outing and the chance to be part of a happening law firm. If interested please apply with CV and cover letter to

Briffa has adopted the Law Society Diversity Policy

Briffa is committed to treating everyone equally, fairly and considerately regardless of age, background, culture, disability, ethnicity, gender, nationality, religion or belief or sexual orientation. We believe Briffa does this and that, for a firm our size, our workforce reasonably reflects the different diversity characteristics. To help us assess this, Briffa regularly asks everyone in its workforce to self-classify themselves against a range of diversity characteristics and collects, analyses and reports the data. However, because of the size of the Briffa’s workforce and the limited numbers in many of the diversity characteristics and even though not everyone has responded and the data has been anonymised, we feel that there is such a risk that individuals might be re-identified from any publication of the data that we have decided not to publish any here.
