Global HQ, Malmesbury, Wiltshire - South West UK


Join us as a Finance Graduate and over the course of this three year programme you’ll understand how our global business operates and the financial considerations that decisions are based upon behind the scenes.  

Market Overview

Home to our global Research, Design and Development (RDD) centre and all of our Commercial functions, the Dyson HQ campus can be found in secluded countryside that helps keep our secrets secret. Having doubled in size in 2016, the campus is now home to new research and development facilities, a new restaurant (home to an English Electric Lightning jet) and a sports facility catering to all Dyson people. Nearby are the fashionable cities of Bristol and Bath (where a young James Dyson invented cyclone technology).


The building is the heartbeat of Dyson. Over 2,500 people, including James himself, spend their days there strategizing, inventing technology and telling the Dyson story to the world.

Function Overview

Dyson finance teams engineer our financial success. From commercial forecasting and planning, to supporting investment in Research, Design and Development, we help the global business perform as well as our technology.

As a graduate you’ll be thrown into the real world with broad and varied roles. Three year-long placements let you experience areas such as financial control, reporting, management accounting and internal audit. Alongside this you’ll also study to become a qualified ACCA accountant - we’ll pay your tuition and exam fees. All you’ll need is the ambition, skills and ideas to excel.


From day one you’ll work in a ‘real job’ in one of our Finance teams – understanding how our global business operates and the financial considerations that decisions are based upon behind the scenes. Over the course of the programme you’ll complete three placements, each one year in duration. And by the third year we expect you will be ready for an international assignment to gain market exposure to compliment your HQ knowledge.  Areas you could experience include:

• Research, Design & Development: Supporting investment decisions in the heart of the Research, Design and Development function. Helping to build the financial business cases for our future products and innovations, and supporting the financial control of our significant cost centres.

• Group Reporting: A great opportunity to experience and thoroughly understand how our Group Finance function interacts with our international teams. Here you’d take ownership of key aspects of the month-end reporting cycle as well as providing financial support to central and overseas marketing teams, and assisting with wider business projects.

• Market Reporting & Analysis: Meeting the reporting and analytical demands associated with our markets. At our Global Headquarters we house the Northern Europe market, our distributor market and our European central finance function.

• Financial Control: Working across functional teams driving process improvements, providing management reporting, forecasts and budgets, inventory analysis and reporting, and gaining exposure to intercompany processes and financial controls.

• Commercial Reporting & Analysis: Delivering data and strategy that supports and enables commercial business decision making. Working to support product categories and selling channels, as well as liaising directly with global markets to provide direct support to the Dyson Executive team.

And don’t forget alongside your role we will sponsor you to become a qualified ACCA accountant – providing study time and development support as well as paying for course fees.


We’re looking for those who show commitment to learning about Finance; how our business operates and the financial considerations that decisions are based upon. 

You’ll need to have (or be expecting) a relevant analytical degree, demonstrating strong numeracy skills. Expectations are high from day one as you will need to able to manage both your work and studies; show your commitment, drive and resilience and we’ll show you the rest.

Benefits Overview

Do all this and in return you’ll get a competitive salary and pension, profit-related bonus, generous leave and life insurance. But financial benefits are only the start of a Dyson career. 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.
