Market Overview

Things move quickly at Dyson. In twenty years, what began with one man and one idea has grown into a global technology company, with 6,000 people and a presence in over 70 countries. From Malmesbury to Malaysia to the US to Australasia and many countries in between, we’ve sold over 80 million machines.

Function Overview

New ideas and technology are the lifeblood of Dyson. We started with vacuum cleaners but have since developed hand dryers, fans, motors and a hairdryer. With the ever growing expansion in our R&D department, the IP department are busier then ever....


This is a 6 month fixed term contract that will play a pivital part in helping us get on top of our administration in the Intellectual Property Team. Your work will mainly consist of scanning thousands of files, saving them on to a network drive and then destroying the files.

On top of this there will also be some basic admin duties that will include filing, copying, data entry and some data work.

Whilst the work will be repetitive it's an essential part to make our team a success. This role also provides a great opportunity to establish yourself within Dyson and if you are successful in this role, there may be other opportunities for you to explore once the contract ends.

We would ideally prefer a full time person (39 hours per week) but can accommodate hours no lower than 30 hours per week. Please make this clear on your application.


To be successful in this role, we would prefer if you had some administration experience, however if you can demonstrate that you are IT literate, quick to learn and have a strong attention to detail then we would like to hear from you.

Due to the nature of the department it's essential that you take pride in your work and can commit to be highly accurate in your duties. Whilst you will be working in a team, the ability to work on your own and using your initiative is essential. Lastly, the pace at Dyson is incredibly fast so therefore you must be able to work at pace and be comfortable working to deadlines.
