INDEPENDENT & TEAM ORIENTED?
WE LIKE THAT ABOUT YOU
Sandvik is a global engineering group active in tooling, materials technology, mining and construction. The company was founded in 1862 as a result of the successful industrialization of a patented invention and our broad spectrum of designs, trademarks, patents and numerous other intellectual property (IP) rights enables us to continually introduce unique products to the market. Obviously, today Sandvik has grown to a global business, and the complexity of multiple markets, laws and regulations is an everyday challenge.
Managing IP rights are vital and important elements of Sandvik’s business operations. Sandvik Intellectual Property AB (SIP) is part of Group Function Legal with global responsibility for Group IP operations, including protecting and enforcing IP rights. We are now looking for a Trademark Administrator to join our team in Stockholm. If you love working with trademarks, we can offer you a challenging and dynamic role in a global environment where your knowledge and experience are of great value in bringing us one step closer to a successful future.
As a Trademark Administrator you are a team member of the trademark group and, as such, involved in all brand-related IP matters. You support the trademark attorney(s) and the trademark manager in their work including for example coordinating trademark filings, trademark availability searches, custom recordals, portfolio management as well as other associated administration. Furthermore, if needed you may assist and help other IP professionals in their work.
We are looking for someone with preferably a university degree, and very good knowledge of the trademark process, from name proposal to granted registration (WIPO, USPTO and EUIPO). You have extensive experience working in an IP law firm or as in-house IP administrator for industrial companies. You have basic knowledge of copyrights and IP enforcement and good knowledge of opposition proceedings as well as trademark clearance searches. Experience of working with SAP Frontend and skills in the use of the IT system Ipendo Platform are advantageous. Good written and verbal communication skills in English are a prerequisite for this position.
We are sincerely interested in, and value your personal qualities. You have an organized, analytical and meticulous mind, pay close attention to details and easily prioritize your work. You take responsibility for your tasks, as you work independently, deliver on given deadlines and do not hesitate to suggest improvements. A true interest in brand related IP is highly valued by us. Excellent teamwork is very important to you, and you play an active role in enhancing the team spirit and bringing passion into your daily assignments.
We are a company with an open-minded culture, actively working to create a workplace that is characterized by diversity and inclusion.
