What insiders say about…
My day to day work involves the use of technical skills and administrative skills. This includes using my scientific knowledge and operating IP Australia's significant amount of computer software programmes to perform my examination work. An integral part of my daily work is keeping up to date with patent law and practice and ensuring it is correctly applied in my examination work.
It is a very friendly and social workplace. This is very important as the nature of our work is very independent with only limited regular collaboration on work cases.
A phone interview and then an interview in person in Canberra (a video conference can be arranged if unable to travel). You will need some basic problem solving skills for the second interview.
Just a basic understanding of IP rights (what is a patent?) and a passion for technology.
7:21 hrs per day, flex time, can be out posted or home based.
The salary is fairly good here. Most people have high level educations and and get paid accordingly. If you want more money, you can generally do overtime.
We get a $250 allowance to spend on health and wellbeing. This includes anything from skydiving to camping gear.
Managers interact with others well. They are mostly approachable and friendly.
The on the job training and mentoring is very good.
Not here long enough to realise this yet.
There are flexible leave and working arrangements in place for parents. There are dedicated workplace diversity officers who review diversity policy and outcomes as well as provide assistance to those who need it.Join us to bookmark!
