Trainee Programme

We are a focused internal training organisation and pride ourselves on our comprehensive trainee programme for future leaders that has been operational for over 20 years.

A place in the programme gives you the opportunity to acquire the strategic and tactical knowledge essential to achieve success as a patent attorney. The trainee programme is for graduate engineers, PhD graduates and young professionals with a few years of work experience in technical disciplines, primarily within the fields of electrical engineering, computer technology, biotechnology, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, civil engineering, technical physics and industrial economics.


We are recruiting trainees to start in September 2020 at our offices in Malmö, Gothenburg, Helsingborg Jönköping, Linköping, Stockholm, Växjö and Östersund. We are collaborating with Academic Work for the recruitment process.
