Electronics and Engineering Graduate Recruitment Day

Electronics and Engineering Graduate Recruitment Day

Thursday 18 October 2018

We are currently recruiting for our Autumn 2019 trainee positions for graduates with backgrounds in Electronics, Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering, or related disciplines.

We are particularly interested in graduates with higher level qualifications in artifical intelligence and machine learning to support the tremendous growth that we are seeing in this field.

We will be holding a Recruitment Day at our London office on Thursday 18 October 2018, at which interviews will take place.  You will need to submit an application to attend the Recruitment Day and this will need to be with us by Monday 1st October. 

We expect our trainees to have a minimum of 360 UCAS points and a 2.1 degree. You will need to be articulate both in writing and verbally as you will need to communicate technical and legal concepts clearly and concisely. Other skills that are needed include analytical skills, commercial awareness and the ability and confidence to talk to clients and other professionals who may or may not share your technical background.

Graduate Recruitment at Venner Shipley

We typically employ 4-5 trainee patent attorneys each year in our Electronics and Engineering department. Positions are available in our London, Cambridge, Guildford and Manchester offices. 

Attracting the brightest and best graduates is fundamental to our success. Our focus is on ensuring that our clients receive the highest level of service possible and that the advice they are given is pragmatic and commercial and works for them and their businesses.

We’re looking for people who are at the top of their game academically, but who are also able to bring a broader view to the workplace. Original thinkers with the ability to work within a team will flourish at Venner Shipley.

In return, we offer a supportive environment where you will receive the training and the encouragement required to develop your career. We believe that the culture of our firm is one of learning; everyone from trainees to partners is encouraged and expected to continue learning throughout their careers. Our collegiate and open approach coupled with the personalities that we employ fosters this progressive culture.
