Communications Executive

Competitive + Bonus + 27 days holiday

London

Description

We are looking for a Communications Executive to support two key category areas. The role is instrumental in sharing stories that bring to life our culture and communicating news.

We would like a natural storyteller, excited by our technology that will relish the opportunity to explain it to anyone and everyone. You have energy and enthusiasm for a fast-paced, results-focused culture, and live Dyson’s problem-solving approach.

Ideally someone who is interested in technology and as a personal care/health background would be preferred. 

Market Overview

Home to our global Research, Design and Development centre and all of our Commercial functions, Dyson HQ is tucked away in the Wiltshire countryside. Our secluded location helps us to protect our ideas and stay independent-minded, yet nearby are the fashionable cities of Bristol and Bath.


The building is the heartbeat of Dyson. Over 1,500 people, including James himself, spend their days strategizing, inventing technology and telling the Dyson story to the world. In 2016, our HQ began doubling its footprint with an ambitious new expansion.

Function Overview

Working closely with our engineers, our press team lets the world's media know what's going on at Dyson; the technology we’re inventing, what goes on behind those secret research and development doors, where we’re expanding and what else is in store. In short, it keeps people talking about Dyson. Through traditional media, cutting-edge events, retail experiences, social media and PR, it seizes every chance to tell the Dyson story.

Accountabilities

  • You’ll need to build relationships quickly and be able to influence multiple stakeholders to achieve your objectives.
  • You’ll have the utmost discretion and be calm, logical, and confident – comfortable communicating with all levels and able to instil confidence.
  • You will be self-motivated, able to work autonomously: a do-er, reliable, and with excellent writing and presentation skills.

Skills


We cherish the culture and philosophy instilled by James Dyson and our inventive engineers, while constantly tuning our approach for the reality of a complex, rapidly growing, global business.  We need someone who is not afraid to challenge the norm, who can distil a message, and who pulls off the odd magic trick.  You will need to be confident and quick thinking, guiding our most senior leaders and our people through the daily challenges, while planning for the future.

You should be excited by our technology and relish the opportunity to explain it to anyone and everyone. You have energy and enthusiasm for a fast-paced, results-focused culture, and live Dyson’s problem-solving approach.  
 
You will have an outstanding understanding of communications channels, the media landscape and the ability to tell inspiring stories is a given.

 

In addition you will have: 
• A Bachelor’s degree of 2.1or above.
• Perfect written and verbal English and preferably a second language.
• Evidence of previously engaging stakeholders and building lasting relationships
• Proven experience in engaging people up, down, and across the organization through verbal and written communication.


Benefits Overview

Dyson monitors the market to ensure competitive salaries and pension contributions. Beyond that, you’ll also enjoy a profit-related bonus, generous leave and life insurance. But financial benefits are only the start of a Dyson career. Rapid professional growth, leadership development and new opportunities abound, driven by regular reviews and dynamic workshops. And with a vibrant culture, flexible working hours, the latest devices and a relaxed dress code reflecting our engineering spirit, it’s an exciting team environment geared to creativity, innovation and am
