Malmesbury, UK


Reporting to the Head of International Talent Acquisition in the UK, the Talent Acquisition Lead (RDD) will provide functional leadership for the research, design and development (RDD) recruitment team in the UK.

Market Overview

Home to our global Research, Design and Development centre and all of our Commercial functions, Dyson HQ is the heartbeat of Dyson. Over 2,000 people, including James himself, spend their days strategizing, inventing technology and telling the Dyson story to the world.

Function Overview

Dyson’s success is all about its people. As we head into unknown global and technical territories, new challenges await. And each recruitment experience must put Dyson ahead of the competition.


Working proactively, you will develop innovative sourcing strategies to deliver on the RDD manpower requirements within budget. And we are growing at pace, so this manpower requirement is ambitious, challenging and impressive. Utilising innovative sourcing channels and a newly established employer brand, we need to build upon Dyson as an employer of choice for future skills within the global technology market. You will act as a knowledgeable and credible interface for all RDD recruitment matters, working closely with HR partners, hiring managers, and external vendors to build strategic relationships to ensure that the highest hiring standards are met and the greatest talent is found to help achieve our business goals; more people, more markets, more machines. Recruitment processes, policies and toolkits need to be constantly reviewed to ensure that our talent acquisition approach is keeping up with the dynamic world of technology. Alongside this, the creation of robust and diverse talent pipelines to support our current and future hiring needs.


First you will have a strong track record of success in a fast moving in-house recruitment function within an transformational engineering / technology organisation, growing at pace. You will know how to connect with, attract and engage talented individuals who are challenging the boundaries of technology. They will be smart. Dyson people are smart. And you will need to be as well. Things get done at Dyson through relationships and team work. You will need to be a passionate self-starter, driven to make things happen across borders within a complex matrix organisation. You will have an ability to influence at the highest levels through clear, informed and logical argument and discussion (tempered by a sense of humour). Dyson is a fast paced and often ambiguous environment. You need to be able to build and effect change - at both a people and process level - so if what you aspire to is sitting on top of a large team supported by streamlined processes, this might not be for you. But if you want to be part of an exciting journey, speaking to talented people daily, then this might be for you.

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, 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.
