Reckitts portfolio of Hygiene, Health and Nutrition brands are its most valuable assets. The group currently has trademark protection in over 150 jurisdictions globally, with over 45,000 trademark live registrations and applications in total. Trademarks provide vital legal protection for the strategic brands of the business.
The roles are based in Hull but currently working from home on a full-time basis while COVID-19 restrictions are in place, so you’ll therefore need to be comfortable working remotely and autonomously for a large proportion of your time initially.

You’ll succeed because…………
You ideally have a degree and/or CITMA Paralegal qualification and significant experience in Trademark formalities (ideally, some in-house experience) with a track record of supporting global portfolios of IP rights. You’re commercial and pragmatic, build close working relationships and enjoy finding solutions to complex challenges.
You’ll have experience of filing and prosecution of trademarks through to registration globally, preparing documentation and producing reports as well as handling recordals, renewals and projects, and supporting enforcement efforts. You’ll possess strong communication and stakeholder management skills as you will work closely with internal teams, Trademark Offices and external trademark attorneys globally.
You’ll love it because……..
This is an excellent opportunity to build on your existing in-house trademark experience, working globally in a fast-paced environment with a huge variety of well-known household brands.
…you’ll get to make an impact like never before. The products you help us get out there will make people’s lives better. Our iconic brands will provide an incredible platform for you. And our dynamic, ownership-driven culture will help bring the very best out of you, every day.
