Automotive Graduate Programme 2019 - UK


£29,000 + £2,000 joining bonus
Hullavington - United Kingdom


At Dyson our uniquely diverse technology portfolio is being brought together into a single, exciting and different product, the Dyson electric vehicle. The next phase in Dyson’s pioneering technology journey. We enjoy pushing the boundaries of what others have defined as ‘impossible’ and our rapidly growing Automotive team is a blend of both Dyson engineers and fresh talent from a range of industries. With a track record of disrupting every product category we enter and a commitment to investing £2 billion towards this endeavour, this is an exciting time to join our multi-disciplinary team. 

Join us as a graduate and from day one you’ll have the chance to have a meaningful impact on the evolution of Dyson technology.


Working at our state-of-the-art Hullavington Technology Campus, over the course of our 2-year Automotive Graduate Programme, you’ll have the chance to rotate around 3 of our core engineering teams. This will give you the chance to gain a breadth of experience, before specialising in any particular area. During the programme, you will also have the chance to gain exposure to some of the non-engineering teams to help give you a better understanding and appreciation of the electric vehicle business as a whole.

We're looking for high-performing individuals who have a specific desire to work in the automotive industry and who have the drive to deliver on Dyson's most high-profile and fast-paced project to date. The work will be challenging, you’ll have ownership and autonomy over your day to day responsibilities. 

Over the course of your 2-year programme, you will complete 6-9-month rotations in 3 of the following teams:
  • Vehicle Integration
  • Safety
  • Chassis
  • Electronics
  • Interiors
  • Body
  • Powertrain
You will also have the opportunity to complete a shorter rotation in a non-engineering area such as Commercial or Procurement.

Our Graduate programme is designed to give you real responsibility from day one, enabling you to add value and make a real difference. Over the two years you will also be supported with a development programme to hone your skills, evolve your knowledge, and help you take your first steps towards becoming a future leader within our business. 


Our Graduate opportunities 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 a Mechanical, Electrical, Systems or Automotive discipline, and with a keen interest in the automotive sector
  • Able to evidence how you have applied your technical knowledge to solve problems, either through your university projects or as part of your extra-curricular activities.
  • Creative in your approach to problem solving to ensure our solutions are both different and better.
  • Passionate about Dyson and our ambitious future plans in the industry.
Above all, you’ll want to play a key part in bringing the next generation of Dyson technology to the world.
