This is an exciting time to join the Intellectual Property Office (IPO) as we embark on a new way of working!

In light of the evolving business support landscape, devolution agenda within England and the government focus on the role of local growth and place, the IPO is piloting a new scheme to embed a representative within a partners site. The objective is to develop and encourage local action and to build economic impact of IP. It will support and build on the work already ongoing within the regions and aim to stimulate effective IP commercialisation.

We will pilot two posts; one will be based within the Greater Birmingham & Solihull LEP the other within the Greater Manchester Growth Hub. Both posts will work across their respective regions to:

  • build and develop IP capability
  • ensure that IP is integrated into business and innovation support programmes at a local level

The post holder will join the IPOs Business Support Policy team and work within the region to develop policy that ensures innovative businesses have the confidence to maximise the value of their IP assets and make a full contribution to the UKs economic growth.

Full details of the roles and how to apply are available on the Civil Service Jobs website.

The closing date for applications is 3 February 2017.
