Welcome from Fran Gillon – Chief Executive

Dear Candidate,

I am delighted that you are interested in applying to be the Compliance and Authorisations Officer at IPReg. I hope you find the information within this candidate pack useful, there is also information about us on our website: https://ipreg.org.uk/.

Our website includes our Business Plan; this sets out our strategic priorities and the work we plan to do. We have recently consulted on our Business Plan for 2023/24.  

The Executive Team is small – this post will be one of 7 employees most of whom work part time.  This is a new role. It combines the important regulatory activities of authorising firms to be admitted to the registers with ensuring that those on the registers comply with IPReg’s Code of Conduct and other regulations.  It is a full-time permanent role with some attendance at the IPReg office in central London each week. You can find full details later on in this pack.

I hope you do decide to put yourself forward for the role. 

For a confidential conversation with Thewlis Graham Associates, who are supporting us with this recruitment, please contact Sarah Thewlis, Managing Director at: applications@thewlisgraham.com. Sarah will be happy to discuss this opportunity with you.

Yours faithfully


Fran Gillon

Chief Executive
