Volvo Group Intellectual Property (VGIP) – who are we?
We are responsible for managing IP for the entire Volvo Group. As such we help to drive the technology transformation with creation and use of patents, trademarks, and designs to support profitability, competitiveness and growth across products, supply chain and R&D.

As an IP Paralegal, you will be essential to the efficient operation of VGIP, working in close connection with the other teams of the department in all aspects of intellectual property law, including patent, trademark, and design matters. You will enable end-to-end IP process efficiency, from case creation through renewals and annuities to end-of-life (abandonment, pruning, expiration).

You enjoy managing and organizing data, taking responsibility for its quality, and using it to present insights. You like to solve problems (even before they arise) and drive continuous improvements. You have an avid interest in intellectual property and technology and take responsibility for operational efficiency and accuracy.
