Concept Designer

£Competitive, benefits include - 27 Days Holiday + Bonus + Pension

Malmesbury, Wiltshire

Description

This role sits within the Design team of our automotive function.

Market Overview

Malmesbury is tucked away in countryside famous for the landmarks of Isambard Brunel, who revolutionised modern engineering. A charming Wiltshire market town doesn’t sound like the place to develop world leading technology, but it’s just right for us. Our secluded location helps us to protect our ideas and stay independent–minded.

As part of the £2.5 billion investment, Dyson acquired a 650 acre plot in Hullavington. This former Royal Air Force base, just five miles from Dyson HQ, will increase our UK footprint tenfold. We’ll be turning old hangars into futuristic labs and workspaces – creating a campus to rival those in Silicon Valley.

Function Overview

We’ve begun work on a battery electric vehicle – that’s no secret. It has remained our ambition to solve the worldwide problem of air pollution for nearly 30 years. Now that we have the ability to bring all our technologies together into a single product, we’re able to solve this problem at the source. For now, it’s all about finding the right people to make it all happen for 2020.

Accountabilities

As part of a flexible, fast paced design environment, your primary responsibility will be to create eye catching design concepts that can be reviewed and progressed to the next stage of design as required.

 

In addition, it will be necessary for you to support the studio in engineering meetings, ensuring that the work of the design team is compatible with engineering requirements and targets.

 

As a Senior Designer, you will be expected to liaise with senior management to present your designs. You will also be responsible for leading the work of Designers on the project.

 

As part of a small, flexible design studio, you will be required to lead design activities across both interior and exterior spaces.

Skills

As a creative design position, we expect you to have a recognized product design qualification (degree level or equivalent), along with an impressive portfolio of conceptual designs. You will have a high level of capability in Adobe Creative Suite, as well as exposure to surface design using Alias and visualization of those designs with VRED.

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 ambition.
