Pension and Benefits Specialist


Malmesbury, Wiltshire


As the Pensions and Benefits Specialist you will be responsible for the management and communication of all UK benefits. You will support the broader Reward team with benefits analysis and benchmarking outside the UK as needed, predominately Europe. You will also monitor developments in UK regulatory and market trends which might be of interest to Dyson in the future.

Market Overview

Dyson’s culture is unique; dynamic, inventive, technology-obsessed and decidedly un-corporate. The mindset is geared to constant change and Dyson’s pace brings constant challenge. It’s not easy or comfortable, but it’s this way of working that drives performance. Dyson suits people with the courage and resilience to find their own way, spotting opportunities where others don’t, and having the self-belief to persevere where others give up. “Good enough” isn’t good enough. Experiences are more important than experience. And attitude counts as much as aptitude.
