Graduate Mechanical and Design Engineers

£26,500 + £2,000 joining payment - benefits include 27 days holiday + free on-site gym + pension

Global HQ: Malmesbury, Wiltshire - South West UK


We’re looking for the next generation of creative problem-solvers; as a graduate engineer at Dyson you’ll be using your technical and creative skills from day one to help us develop revolutionary new technologies.

Market Overview

Home to our global Research, Design and Development 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

At Dyson we are encouraged to think differently, challenge convention and be unafraid to make mistakes. We’re creative, collaborative, practical and enthusiastic. But most of all we’re hugely passionate about what we do. At the heart of Dyson is Research, Design and Development (RDD) - Dyson's engine room. It’s where our engineers challenge convention, build, test, fail, refine, and then fail again - all to invent technology that solves problems that others ignore.


As a graduate engineer at Dyson you’ll be using your technical and creative skills from day one to help us develop revolutionary new technologies. That means working in our high security offices, alongside experts in your field, using cutting edge machinery. But innovation isn’t easy.

As a mechanical or design graduate engineer you could be supporting our New Product Innovation team, New Product Development team, Technical Development team, Test team or even one of our secret projects  - wherever you are you’ll be expected to explore solutions relentlessly, persevere through failure, and search for answers in unlikely places.

You’ll need to be thoroughly hands on, practically applying your technical knowledge with a creative flair to ensure that all engineering problems are resolved thoroughly. This means championing great design to produce products that meet all performance and functional criteria all whilst challenging and developing Dyson engineering practices to continuously improve.

You’ll be part of a 4,500-strong global team of engineers and scientists from a broad range of disciplines. It’s a place for inventors and creative minds who thrive on challenging convention. We’ll support you with a full induction, learning about Dyson's global business, meeting senior stakeholders and networking with your new colleagues. Technical induction follows to provide understanding of processes, technologies and safety; setting you up to contribute fully in your role.


Our engineers challenge convention, build, test, fail, refine, fail again. It’s an iterative process. But in this role you’ll see first-hand how your discipline feeds into each product lifecycle. So as well as a 2:1 or above in a relevant engineering degree, you’ll have the ability to combine creative thinking and technical expertise. 

Your own projects, work experience or university coursework will show your creative and considered approach to problem solving and demonstrate your understanding of practical and methodical design development, ideally from concept through to prototyping and testing.

Above all, you’ll want to play a key part in bringing the next generation of Dyson technology to the world.

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.
