Description

Research, Design and Development (RDD) is Dyson's engine room. It’s where our engineers challenge convention, build, test, fail, refine, and then fail again - all to invent technology that solves problems that others ignore. 
Join us as an intern and from day one you’ll be assigned to a live project with the chance to have a meaningful impact on the evolution of Dyson technology. 

Accountabilities

Dyson’s Project Managers play a critical role in delivering Dyson’s future technology. Coordinating and communicating across all disciplines of design, procurement, manufacturing, commercial and marketing, they ensure the effective and timely delivery of projects, against defined boundaries of time, specification and cost.
During this internship, you’ll be working on reputation-defining projects from day one as part of a global team of Project & Programme Managers. You’ll play a critical role in the development of new Dyson technology ensuring deliverables are met in a timely manner.
This is a broad and varied role, meaning no two days are the same. Some of your responsibilities could include:
  • Coordinating and communicating project status cross-functionally to ensure effective and timely input
  • Taking an active, hands-on role to understand how engineering problems are resolved thoroughly and helping to support that resolution
  • Utilising established Dyson development processes, good engineering practice and discipline to deliver solutions
  • Governance and organisation of project related information
  • Supporting resource allocation against time plans and supporting overall project cost management
  • Working with development teams to ensure new technologies maximise the performance of new products

Skills

Our internships are competitive and delivering the next generation of Dyson technology is tough, so you’ll need to be:
  • On track for a 2:1 or above in an Engineering discipline, graduating in 2020, with an active interest in business. This could be demonstrated through your modules or extra—curricular activities.
  • Able to show outstanding communication and interpersonal skills with the confidence to negotiate with and influence a range of stakeholders across the business, from engineers to marketers.
  • Able to demonstrate how you manage your time effectively and multi-task so experience of a high-pressure, competitive environment would be beneficial.
We like people who show some get-up-and-go and passion for what they do. We’ll expect a lot from you. And no day will be the same as the last.

Benefits

Professional growth, leadership development and new opportunities abound, driven by regular reviews and dynamic workshops. And with a vibrant culture, the latest devices and a relaxed dress code reflecting our engineering spirit, it’s an exciting team environment geared to fuelling and realising ambition.
