Our aim is to be on hand to all professionals in the IP industry, not just those who are actively seeking a new role
London, United Kingdom (PRWEB) November 20, 2014
Fellows and Associates are known to the Intellectual Property sector for having a less than conventional business model, a strategy that has been working extremely well for them since their launch in 2009. “Our aim is to be on hand to all professionals in the IP industry, not just those who are actively seeking a new role” explains consultant Phillipa Field. “We provide a multi-dimensional service with articles, news releases, polls and video updates available, alongside the job postings you would normally expect to see. We try to be a support structure to the IP industry on the whole; helping both active candidates and clients, as well as acting as a sounding board for those who simply need advice or want clarity on current market conditions.”
The multitude of content on the Fellows and Associates’ site is supported by a collection of well-maintained social media platforms, such as Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ and Facebook. The team has invested heavily in ensuring their website content is widely publicised across their social networks, as well as providing additional links to points of interest on their individual platforms. “The Intellectual Property profession is international in nature and so it is important from a networking and business point of view for us to attract as wider readership as possible” says Fellows Founder and Managing Director Pete Fellows. “Mediums such as Twitter and LinkedIn help us achieve this as we have access to an on line IP community spanning the entire globe.”
One such service that has been recently advertised across their social media is the FellowsTV Intellectual Property Roundup. The roundup features the ‘face of Fellows’, consultant Phillipa Field, and features a breakdown of what has been keeping the team busy over recent months. The video is hoped to bridge the gap between the recruiters and their audience, giving would be candidates and clients an insight into the personality of Fellows and Associates.
“We want people to feel they are able to call us irrespective of whether they are looking for a job or have an active requirement. We are very much of the belief that the long term game is far more rewarding than a quick sale and so much prefer to spend time giving frank advice than trying to push a job (or a candidate) onto someone. Hopefully our videos will encourage this type of contact which may consequently end up in more successful business relationship than just a voice on the end of the telephone or an outstretched arm at a business meeting.”
This month’s roundup includes the Fellows and Associates’ recent trip to the AIPPI World Intellectual Property Congress in Toronto which has resulted in the expansion of the team’s international remit and active vacancies available in Germany and Mexico. Keeping true to their commitment to new media, they also discuss marking their fifth birthday with an animated video on their YouTube channel. The final segment of the video is dedicated to the team’s current requirements, noting an increase in activity for patent attorneys with a chemical background as well as trade mark attorneys. All of the Fellows and Associates’ opportunities can be found in the ‘jobs’ section of their website.
