Join the brilliant minds protecting the world’s brightest ideas.

If you’re inspired by brilliant thinking, come and work with our team of IP experts at one of Australasia’s leading IP firms and help protect, build and grow some of the world’s most exciting engineering ideas and innovations.

AJ Park is recognised as having one of the top specialist teams of IP experts in the world. Our clients range from start-ups and small to medium enterprises, to publicly-listed multinationals, government, and research institutes across
130 countries.

Right now, we’re on the lookout for patent professionals with a relevant degree and preferably three to eight years’ post-qualification work experience, specialising in physics or mechanical, aeronautical or process engineering through to mechatronics, electrical and electronic engineering. Alternatively, you may be an engineer with some experience, but have decided engineering is not for you and are looking for a change in career and interested in pursuing IP.

You’ll join an acclaimed firm awarded ‘Specialist IP Firm of the Year’ in the New Zealand Law Awards, and work alongside people who have received numerous accolades for their work.

You’ll do interesting work, and learn a great deal as you go, for a wide range of New Zealand and Australian clients across a broad spectrum of technologies and sectors. Many are export-focused. They look to us for assistance in protecting and commercialising their IP in diverse jurisdictions around the globe.

AJ Park has an enviable reputation in the market and is a great place to work. We have a strong people-focused culture and have recently been named in NZ Lawyer’s inaugural Employer of Choice report 2020 listing the 25 top-ranking legal organisations in New Zealand in terms of overall employee experience. This report celebrates employers who go beyond industry standards to provide their people with a safe and engaging working environment and showcases firms leading the way with policies and initiatives that engage their staff. We were also awarded ‘Excellence’ in the ‘Employer of Choice’ category of the New Zealand Law Awards 2020. We have a comprehensive health and wellbeing programme that includes a wide range of social and health activities.

If you’d like to work in a supportive environment that places a strong emphasis on work/life balance, career development and professional growth, take this opportunity to join our award-winning team of IP specialists.
