‘For the profession of Senior Formalities Officer, your education is less relevant than your character traits and capacities’

Wietske Welten, Senior Formalities Officer and Process Officer

Wietske Welten BA

‘You may not expect to see me in this profession; after all, I studied at the Dutch Art Academy. But practice shows that your education is less relevant for this profession than your character traits and capacities. Fortunately, my creativity is put to good use when we must satisfy our clients’ wishes yet stay within the legal constraints.

We aim for a stable working environment where everything is under control. Yet, I also really enjoy exceptional situations with urgent deadlines, which we occasionally have.

One of my favourite times of the year is the annual Patentwerk Christmas lunch. And the drinks, dinners and outings are always enjoyable.’

The expertises of Wietske

‘I like to contribute to the improvement of daily processes, I identify problems which are inconspicuous but impactful, and I look for suitable solutions to those problems. That I am able to contribute to our company and our provision of service in this way motivates and energises me.’

As Senior Process Officer, Wietske is responsible for quality improvement, documentation and monitoring of the processes and procedures within the organisation and the systems for these.

As Senior Formalities Officer, she monitors the progress of patent proceedings in the Netherlands and abroad. In addition, she enjoys transferring knowledge and therefore enjoys being actively involved in the training of new colleagues.
