Welcome from Fran Gillon – Chief Executive

Dear Candidate,

I am delighted that you are interested in applying to be the Education and Diversity Policy Officer at IPReg. I hope you find the information within this candidate back 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.  The Education and Diversity Officer post is a new role, and its creation reflects the importance that the IPReg Board places on education policy and improving diversity and inclusion in the IP sector. 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
