Ultimately this is a stepping stone to a communications focused role in our global team so we are looking for someone with plenty of ambition.

Market Overview

Home to our global Research, Design and Development centre and all of our Commercial functions, Dyson HQ is tucked away in the Wiltshire countryside. Our secluded location helps us to protect our ideas and stay independent-minded, yet nearby are the fashionable cities of Bristol and Bath.


The building is the heartbeat of Dyson. Over 1,500 people, including James himself, spend their days strategizing, inventing technology and telling the Dyson story to the world. In 2016, our HQ began doubling its footprint with an ambitious new expansion.

Function Overview

Working closely with our engineers, our press team lets the world's media know what's going on at Dyson; the technology we’re inventing, what goes on behind those secret research and development doors, where we’re expanding and what else is in store.

Skills

You’ll have relevant experience of providing secretarial and administrative support to a team, whilst establishing effective office systems and procedures.

You’ll have good IT skills, strong organisational experience with an ability to prioritise workloads whilst coping with a high pace working environment.
You’ll be a natural storyteller who is, confident and relaxed dealing with anyone. Interested in news and current affairs – able to discuss the latest events with Dyson’s most senior leaders. And you’ll also have a clean driving licence.
