Market Overview

Nestled in the Cotswolds close to landmarks of the revolutionary Victorian engineer Brunel, Dyson Northern Europe shares offices and has close links with Dyson HQ. In fact, many of our people progress into roles within the global team.
 
As Dyson’s most established market, Northern Europe provides unique challenges to our growth. We thrive on confronting these head on: developing new categories, stronger claims, more targeted marketing and more engaging retail environments to fight off tough competition. It builds great camaraderie and cross-team support – and motivates us to set increasingly ambitious targets.

Function Overview

Dyson machines work differently to others. So those who sell them need to think differently and understand complex engineering. Our Retail Sales teams are experts who bring the retail world up to speed. Training. Introducing our new technology. And ensuring the Dyson brand stands out. We gain deep insights into competitors and customers alike, driving national sales strategies to bring Dyson technology into more stores and homes. It’s an energetic team in a fast-paced retail environment. And like everyone at Dyson, we constantly challenge how to make future technology even more successful.

Accountabilities

The successful person will be responsible for driving sales value growth and brand awareness in the Central England and East Anglia regions, by building brand advocacy and strong relationships with our retailer colleagues in store.


Where we demonstrate, we win. You will lead a team of Dyson Demonstrators in-store, motivating, coaching and ensuring the compliance strategy is executed. There is a requirement to work at least two weekends in any four-week period.


This area will look after postcodes:  CB, CM, IP, NR, PE, SS and CO


The successful person will report into the South East Divisional Sales Manager, who reports into the GB National Field Sales Manager.

Skills

Proven sales background within a Retail or B2C environment. Experience of working to and exceeding targets. A skilled negotiator with brilliant presentation skills. You'll thrive in a fast-paced environment, leading others, building relationships and solving problems. Commercially-minded, you'll enjoy having big strategic conversations as well as getting stuck in to make things happen, and you'll be comfortable thinking on your feet and finding your own path. Previous experience of managing or leading a team would be advantageous.

Benefits Overview

Dyson monitors the market to ensure competitive salaries and pension contributions. Beyond that, you’ll also enjoy a 20% bonus, fully-expensed company car and fuel card, lunch allowance and 27 days annual leave.

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, 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.
