Northern European HQ, Malmesbury - South Cotswolds, 45mins from Bath/Bristol area - with travel + rotations in territories
Home to our global Research, Design and Development (RDD) 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.
Over the two year programme you’ll complete a number of key roles across the Northern Europe market. Your first 6 to 12 months will be working with our Field Sales team, business-to-business (B2B) or National Accounts team to develop and widen your business acumen.

Exposure to the different ways of working and the different challenges faced within these business areas
We're growing, we're expanding and we need strong, natural leaders to be the catalyst for change. Don't expect this to be the easy option - you must thrive in a fast- paced sales environment. Previous experience of working in a commercial environment would be advantageous. You’ll need to have (or be expecting) a degree in any subject discipline. And being geographically mobile across the UK and Northern Europe.
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.
