Our on line presence is much more than just a jobs board. We want to cater to our target audience both when they are actively, and not actively, present in the job market and so regularly update the website with a variety of content.

Fellows and Associates continue their multifaceted approach to business with a quirky alternative to the ‘top ten tips’ article commonly found in business literature. The team are known for offering their clients and candidates a bespoke service tailored to each individual brief, as well as an array of diverse content on their website, and their latest article giving some somewhat unconventional advice for use at a networking event is no different.

“Our on line presence is much more than just a jobs board,” explains recruitment consultant Phillipa Field. “We want to cater to our target audience both when they are actively, and not actively, present in the job market and so regularly update the website with a variety of content such as articles, videos and polls that we think will be of interest. It not only generates a constant flow of traffic, increasing the chances of candidates potentially seeing a suitable job opportunity during a passive visit or sparking interest from a new client both here in the UK or abroad, but also helps to strengthen our personable approach to business.”

The article in question highlights the team’s top ten words of advice when attending a networking event and offers a refreshing take on a format that some may regard as being overused and tired.

“In the run up to a large industry conference such as the INTA Annual Meeting, it can be quite common to see an increase in these types of articles,” says Phillipa. “We wanted to offer something different to what is normally expected and hopefully give our fellow networkers something that they can relate to and find useful, as well as providing them with an interesting read!”

Another way in which Fellows and Associates continue to provide a valued service that goes above and beyond the normal realms of an Intellectual Property recruiter is through their annual salary survey, which is now in its fourth year. The survey was made available through an on line platform and encourages IP professionals at all levels across the world to take part.

“The survey collects data directly from professionals working in the sector, rather than using summarised information provided by internal HR departments of IP firms,” says Michele Fellows, Fellows and Associates director and driver behind the annual salary survey. “This approach ensures that the results are as accurate as they can be and reflective of true market averages."

Michele is currently finalising the results ahead of their publication in the CIPA Journal, the ITMA Review and their inclusion on the Fellows and Associates website. Hard copies of the survey will also be made available.

“We have had an overwhelming response to the survey this year with a significant number of IP professionals taking part. The high volume of participants, as well as the continued support from leading industry publications, will definitely encourage us to continue with the survey for many years to come,” Michele enthused.
