After this, it’s expected you’ll take your skills and experience to a different European office like Milan, Madrid, Vienna or Zurich to drive commercial performance further afield. This is not like any other programme; it will flex with the business need, keeping you challenged and accelerating your marketing career.

Our Marketing, Communications and Sales teams launch our latest machines to the world, bringing our problem-solving technology to life in engaging ways.

As a recent graduate, you’ll be right in the mix, working with specialists in all areas and just like our engineers, you’ll be challenging convention to turn great ideas into reality; innovating across our markets.

Accountabilities

Starting in one country you can expect to achieve 1 to 2 missions in the first 12 months. As you learn more about us, and we about you, you should expect movement during your second year to do brilliant things in another European market.

In your role you’ll be assigned to specific projects which we call ‘missions’. Defined by business needs as they arise, no two ‘missions’ will be the same, but they will all be dynamic, broad and demanding. It is this flexible approach that enables us to grow our business, and accelerate the development of our most talented people. Whilst we cannot prescribe here exactly what you will be doing, you could expect to work in these teams:

Branding and Marketing

Support Marketing Managers with launching our new technology and building our brand and category understanding. You will also be involved in the evaluation of projects and campaigns, organising communication audits at first execution stage and post launch issuing details of ways to align with campaign kit and improve integration.

Retail Activation and Sales

Develop activation methods how to engage best with our consumers to make them experience and understand our products. Work with our Field Sales team or National Accounts team to develop and widen your business acumen.

Digital Analytics

One of the fastest growing commercial functions at the very heart of understanding how well social marketing performs and its contribution to the business. Working cross functionally, use cutting edge analytical tools to provide reporting and insights to shape future strategy. 

Skills

Expectations are high from day one so you will need to be able to network, work autonomously and show resilience.

You’ll need to have or be expecting a degree in any subject discipline, graduating in 2019 or graduated in the last couple of years.

Some experience of a busy, deadline-driven environment would be great. But it’s not vital – we’ll teach you everything you need to know.

It’s all about showing a passion for marketing, sales and digital and the Dyson reputation.

You will however need to be fluent in English and at least one other European language. We’ll expect a lot from you. And no day will be the same as the last.

Benefits

Dyson monitors the market to ensure competitive salaries and pension contributions. Beyond that, you’ll also be invited to join a company bonus scheme, enjoy a Dyson pension, healthcare and a competitive amount of 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.
