Description

As a global technology enterprise, we recognise that our actions have far-reaching consequences. We have a responsibility to proactively behave in a sustainable way. At Dyson we strive to make a positive difference. We are rising to the challenge of creating disruptive technology in a socially responsible way. We apply the same principles of innovation, collaboration and resourcefulness that our engineers use for product design to ensure we maintain a sustainable business. The challenge is great and are our aspirations are large. Together we are working to solve important problems, such as reducing our environmental footprint, contributing to the communities we operate in and ensuring our supply chain meets our high standards. It started with the vacuum bag or, more specifically eliminating it. Now, we're constantly looking at ways to do more, with less. 

In order to achieve this, we need to grow our CSER team

Accountabilities

Here are some of the activities you may be involved in:
To define and implement overarching company sustainability strategies, objectives and targets looking 5+ years out, utilising subject matter expertise and environmental affairs experience.
Working alongside the CSI team (Claims, Standards and Insights) and RDD functions, supporting and feeding into the near future product sustainability roadmaps.
Monitor and report on emerging global environmental trends and regulation directions to feed into future Dyson product development policies and directions, be it materials of potential concern, eco-design and the circular economy. Work with CSI, RDD and other internal teams to develop Dyson’s position, prepare for potential impact and articulate strategy internally and externally.
Monitor and report on potential governmental incentive and penalties schemes for environmental and social activity. Develop strategies to maximise opportunities and minimise risk to the business. 
Oversee processes for assessing environmental impacts of products and operations, ensuring good quality data which will be used for a number of purposes including reporting, legislation and marketing claims.
Build and manage relations with external regulators, industrial bodies and government agencies. Represent Dyson in relation to environmental affairs with Trade Associations, Standards committees and NGOs.

Skills

We require our Sustainability Engineers and Project Managers to have proven experience in the field of environmental engineering or sustainability and ideally, in an industry that has exposed you to product development. You'd be involved in many different activities but an understanding of standards and legislation would be incredibly beneficial.
