Malmesbury

Description

The Programme Manager plays a pivotal role in an established Dyson category ensuring that all of our campaigns are planned, governed, and resourced to meet business launch dates. You'll ensure our consumer experiences are consistently differentiated across all touch points. We need to be integrated, user centric and data driven. To achieve this we need to develop new capability, processes and tools so we can create uniquely Dyson owner experiences.


This role is an 8 month fixed term contract.

Market Overview

Three years ago 80% of Dyson’s business was full-sized vacuum cleaners. Today, its digital motor powered cordless vacuums, robots, Airblade hand dryers, bladeless fans, humidifiers, purifiers and heaters are powering its growth in 75 countries around the world. 2015 saw the addition of Jake Dyson Light to the portfolio, and in April 2016 Dyson took its biggest leap yet, revolutionising the world of health and personal care with the launch of the Dyson Supersonic™ Hairdryer.

Function Overview

Our aim is to create inspired and highly differentiated experiences that amplify the pioneering technology we make. In order to deliver on this vision and Dyson’s growth ambitions, we need to transform the way we work.


Whilst we have highly differentiated products, our consumer experiences are not consistently differentiated across all touch points. We need to be integrated, user centric and data driven. This means we need to develop new capability, processes and tools so we can create uniquely Dyson owner experiences.


Within this context we need to be fit for purpose and manage ourselves to be able to deliver these experiences in a more managed, professional and efficient manner.

Accountabilities

As a Programme Manager you'll ensure that all of our launches and campaigns are planned, governed, resourced and managed to meet business needs. You'll be aligned with a specific category and will work closely with the Category Director and commercial team to ensure the Category programme of work is visible, understood and tiered. As the gatekeeper for all projects in the Floorcare Full Size category, you'll represent the Category’s interests within the broader context of all the projects Group Commercial put resource against.


You'll deliver commercially critical projects to a Dyson level of quality in the most efficient manner. The core role is to enable the enterprise to make informed decisions on project choices, using clear and transparent information to enable these choices.

Skills

You'll have excellent project management and communication skills working in a collaborative, cross functional environment. You'll have used these to deliver milestone events on time; influence, negotiate and lead others whilst overseeing and driving through multiple projects. You'll be an experienced planner and have strong creative agency experience. To succeed you'll need a transparent approach, great senior stakeholder skills and speed when managing upwards whilst also having strong prioritising abilities.

Benefits Overview

Dyson monitors the market to ensure competitive salaries and pension contributions. Beyond that, you’ll also enjoy a profit-related bonus, generous leave and life insurance. But financial benefits are only the start of a Dyson career. Rapid professional growth, leadership development and new opportunities abound, driven by regular reviews and dynamic workshops. And with a vibrant culture and a relaxed dress code reflecting our engineering spirit, it’s an exciting team environment geared to creativity, innovation and ambition.
