Our process is backed up by extensive market knowledge and an objective, bespoke approach for every client. We achieve this through our experienced research team, an alliance network of patent attorneys and IP specialists in addition to our successful, expert process.

    Placing people with passion and purpose

    Our team brings a wealth of experience to MWA and the IP Recruitment industry, but beyond them, MWA engages with a network of industry professionals who support MWA and form part of the team on all search-driven campaigns. This is part of our unique offering.

    Your IP recruitment partner

    We work with private practice IP firms through to a broad range of corporations, ranging from start-up enterprises to Global Blue-Chip organisations, offering them an international search.

    Our in-house search team is in regular contact with the industry’s top attorneys, enabling us to source the right individuals for each role. We want to work closely with clients and candidates and be recognised as industry experts who are trusted, knowledgeable and genuine recruitment partners.

    Our chosen charity

    Our Chosen Charity

    At MWA we believe that running a business brings responsibility and should have a positive impact on our society.  Business is about more than just making profit and when we are doing well we want our chosen charity and community partners to benefit.

    Our nominated charity for this year is Candlelighters, an organisation close to our hearts and based near our Yorkshire office that supports and cares for children with cancer and their families. Candlelighters funds cancer research, family holidays, grants, essential additional services within hospital and provides vital support for families battling children’s cancer.

    Once a candidate has been successfully placed in a role we donate a proportion of the fee to Candlelighters. We have had an incredibly positive response to this initiative from both candidates and clients. We hope that our contribution will go some way to helping such a worthwhile cause. And as a people-centric business, it is an obvious choice to help such a commendable charity.
