The Opportunity

Höganäs is the world leader for iron and metal powders. The company employs 2400 people, has more than 3500 products and in 2019, generated a turnover of 10,343 MSEK. Today, Höganäs’ metal powders are used in a wide range of industries and applications, where they offer entirely new possibilities to create more effective, lighter products with a reduced environmental impact.

Höganäs is enjoying strong growth in new markets and with this evolution towards sustainable and renewable industries, the IP function needs to take a more pro-active stance in providing business-relevant IP advice. You will play a key role in achieving this and in building a legacy for the organisation, in how IP can be used as a commercial tool.

The Role

  • You will be located at the headquarters in Höganäs, Sweden, reporting to the Head of IP.
  • You will be developing relationships with the internal stakeholders including the inventors, R&D managers, senior commercial managers, product development and legal teams,
  • You will engage with suppliers, third-party partners and external patent counsels,
  • You will maintain and develop an appropriate network inside Höganäs to identify and exploit new developments in IP and related areas.

Professional Qualities

Your academic qualification will ideally be within chemical engineering or a related degree. Your academic experience will have provided you with a broad base of scientific knowledge on which you have built your patent skills.

As a qualified European Patent Attorney, you will come to the position

with a background of working in-house or private practice – if the latter, then you would need to demonstrate experience of managing direct clients. Your experience of IP will be equally broad and will have touched most aspects of the patent life cycle. This will help better position you as the partner, concerning not only external stakeholder expectation but also internal customers.

In summary, Höganäs is looking to you to raise the awareness of IP across the organization and to help build a strategically relevant patent portfolio which provides value to the organisation, as it progresses towards new sustainable technologies.
