Market Overview

Home to our global Research, Design and Development centre and all of our Commercial functions, Dyson HQ is tucked away in countryside famous for the railway tunnels and bridges of Isambard Brunel, who revolutionised modern engineering. Our secluded location helps us to protect our ideas and stay independent-minded. Yet nearby are the fashionable cities of Bristol and Bath (where a young James Dyson invented cyclone technology). 

The building is the heartbeat of Dyson. Nearly 2,000 people, including James himself, spend their days strategizing, inventing technology and telling the Dyson story to the world. Last year our HQ doubled its footprint with an ambitious new expansion and phase 1 of the Hullavington development is nearing completion...

Function Overview

Group Security’s mission is to safeguard the integrity of people (employees, visitors and contractors), assets (intellectual and physical) and our reputation, whilst acting in a manner consistent with the demands of the laws and standards of the countries in which we operate. To do this we centre and export our best practice operations from the Security Centre of Excellence on the Malmesbury Campus.  Our objectives are to enable Dyson to reimagine the future in a safe and secure environment and to support the company with its growth ambitions.  To that end, in the UK, we are simultaneously developing and securing a second campus environment at Hullavington and opening offices in Bristol.
