Global Head of Reward (Interim)




As Global Head of Reward (Interim) you will be responsible for leading and developing a world-class reward function, shaping Dyson’s future reward strategy. 

Market Overview

Dyson’s global HQ is tucked away in the picturesque setting of the Cotswolds, in Malmesbury, England. 

All on one campus we have – RDD, graphics, marketing, group functions and contact centre.  But it’s not all work and no play – in 2015 the campus expanded to include The Lightning Café, where a 19-tonne English Electric Lightning Jet hangs from the ceiling, the Concorde Café, where an Olympus 593 Concorde engine sits around the corner and The Hangar – a multi-purpose sports facility. The building was designed by Wilkinson Eyre and has won several awards. 

And the Dyson world is ever developing. Our home in Malmesbury is where it all began, but since then we have expanded into 75 countries worldwide, and the list is growing. We have world class design, innovation and manufacturing centres, along with spaces in global regions; Europe, Asia and the US to name a few. In 2017 we opened our newest engineering space, The Singapore Technology Centre, to help propel Dyson forward in the AI and software arena.
