Dyson Commercial Graduates
You will experience a diverse and challenging range of strategic Marketing, Sales, Digital and Communications opportunities. The role is based in our German office in Cologne and offers a fantastic grounding to the commercial side of our business.
Dyson is a global technology company founded in 1993 in Malmesbury, UK. Over 8,500 people, including James Dyson himself, spend their days strategizing, inventing technology and telling the Dyson story to the world. Since 1998 Dyson can be found on the German market. About 120 people are responsible for Marketing and Selling out all our Dyson products.
We transform every category we enter with radical and iconic reinventions that work, perform and look very different. We're growing - fast. Our ambition is huge. We're about better ideas and better technologies. It's about finding better ways to work in more new markets and bright new categories. Dyson is different. Our culture is unique. It's not easy or comfortable. It's certainly not for everyone. But if you thrive on a challenge and are excited by change – it could be for you.
Our Marketing, Communications and Sales teams launch our latest machines to the world, bringing our problem-solving technology to life in engaging ways. Thankfully, we don’t need marketing gimmicks or clichés because we have fact and engineering superiority on our side. Our in-house agency ensures consistency in brand, advertising, packaging, retail, events and digital across our global markets. As a recent graduate, you’ll be right in the mix, working with specialists in all areas and just like our engineers, you’ll be challenging convention to turn great ideas into reality.
In your role you’ll be assigned to specific projects which we call ‘Missions’. The variety of ‘Missions’ means that no two roles will be alike, they are dynamic; defined by the business need as they arise. You could expect some of the following responsibilities:
Marketing and Communications
Support Marketing and PR Managers with launching our new technology and building our brand and category understanding. You will also be involved in the evaluation of projects and campaigns, organising communication audits at first execution stage and post launch issuing details of ways to align with campaign kit and improve integration.
Retail Activation and Sales
Drive our retail presence in all channels, ensure premium and brand compliant presentation and communication through retail fixtures. Develop activation methods how to engage best with our consumers to make them experience and understand our products.
One of the fastest growing commercial functions at the very heart of understanding how well social marketing performs and its contribution to the business. Working cross functionally, use cutting edge analytical tools to provide reporting and insights to shape future strategy.
Each ‘Mission’ will have clear objectives for delivery in a given time period – becoming a product expert, gaining in depth understanding of Dyson technology and bring this to life for consumers as required.
Expectations are high from day one so you will need to be able to network, work autonomously and show resilience. You’ll need to have or be expecting a degree in any subject discipline. Some experience of a busy, deadline-driven environment would be great. But it’s not vital – we’ll teach you everything you need to know. It’s all about showing a passion for marketing and sales and the Dyson brand. You need fluent German and English language skills and you are raring to participate and own various projects. We’ll expect a lot from you. And no day will be the same as the last.
