Job description

Duties

Do you want to be amongst the first to see new developments in brands and marketing? Why not start a career as a Trade Mark Examiner?

A Trade Mark Examiners role is to examine trade mark applications and determine whether applications comply with legislation.

IP Australia is an Australian Government agency with a passion for bright ideas, offering a great work-life balance, flexible working arrangements and rewarding career paths in the intellectual property (IP) industry.

Trade Mark Examiners are responsible for gathering and organising information, identifying relevant issues and applying legislation-based procedures to make timely and accurate decisions.

As an Examiner, you will liaise closely with businesses, lawyers and the general public, working to resolve issues with clients and helping them to protect their intellectual property rights. You will have exceptional time management skills, as well as clear, concise and logical written and oral communication skills.

Starting as a trainee Examiner, you will be supported by a workplace coach through a competency based training program to build your expertise. After training, you will work independently to produce trade mark examinations with clearly defined performance indicators.

Working in a team of 10-15 people, you will be able to identify work group priorities and achieve team goals. You will also be responsible for managing your own work program to meet individual minimum acceptable performance requirements.
