Lesley is Sustainability Manager for the Intellectual Property Office. The Intellectual Property Office, based in Newport, is the official UK government body responsible for intellectual property (IP) rights including patents, designs, trade marks and copyright. Lesley joined the office as a trade mark examiner when it first moved to South Wales from London. Her current role covers a number of areas including environmental management, corporate social responsibility and health & wellbeing.
The Intellectual Property Office has had an active employee volunteering programme for a number of years which Lesley has been responsible for driving forward. The office has recently joined the Business Class programme and Lesley is looking forward to the new opportunities that this will bring.
