New ideas are the lifeblood of Dyson. We started with the first vacuum with no loss of suction. Now we’re a global business with over 3,000 people, creating new technology to solve everyday problems. And it’s not just vacuum cleaners, we also develop hand dryers, fans and motors, all of which solve a problem long-forgotten (or long-ignored) by other manufacturers. But this is only the start.
Every year, we invest half our profits back into our research and development laboratory in Wiltshire. A third of the people at Dyson are engineers or scientists – always thinking, testing, breaking and questioning.
They’re a varied bunch, too. Many are design engineers developing new ideas and technology. Then there are specialists who test and improve different aspects of each machine, from the way they sound to what they pick up. Some will have years of experience. Many are fresh out of university.
Working at Dyson
What really sets the graduate experience at Dyson apart is the level of responsibility given. Dyson graduates hit the ground running. They are integrated quickly into their individual teams, and given responsibility from day one. This sense of immediate ownership is exciting, motivating and rewarding. Dyson graduates enjoy learning – and working hard.
At Dyson, we firmly believe in nurturing talent and challenging people to get the best from them - how far you go at Dyson is up to you. What we will offer is the support and mentoring you need to succeed. The path of progression here is pretty linear, and exceptional people do well and move up quickly. But we're not blinkered. If you want to get involved somewhere else (a new team or country), there are opportunities.
Dyson offer an ACCA training programme for finance roles.
Dyson offer internships in Communications and PR and in Finance. There are no internships in Research, Design and Development.
