Accountabilities

From day one you’ll work in a ‘real job’ in one of our Finance teams – understanding how our global business operates and the financial considerations that decisions are based upon behind the scenes. Over the course of the programme you’ll complete three placements, each one year in duration. And by the third year we expect you will be ready for an international assignment to gain market exposure to compliment your HQ knowledge.  Areas you could experience include: 
  • Research, Design & Development: Supporting investment decisions in the heart of the Research, Design and Development function. Helping to build the financial business cases for our future products and innovations, and supporting the financial control of our significant cost centres. 
  • Group Reporting: A great opportunity to experience and thoroughly understand how our Group Finance function interacts with our international teams. Here you’d take ownership of key aspects of the month-end reporting cycle as well as providing financial support to central and overseas marketing teams, and assisting with wider business projects. 
  • Market Reporting & Analysis: Meeting the reporting and analytical demands associated with our markets. At our Global Headquarters we house the Northern Europe market, our distributor market and our European central finance function. 
  • Financial Control: Working across functional teams driving process improvements, providing management reporting, forecasts and budgets, inventory analysis and reporting, and gaining exposure to intercompany processes and financial controls. 
  • Commercial Reporting & Analysis: Delivering data and strategy that supports and enables commercial business decision making. Working to support product categories and selling channels, as well as liaising directly with global markets to provide direct support to the Dyson Executive team.
And don’t forget alongside your role we will sponsor you to become a qualified ACCA accountant – providing study time and development support as well as paying for course fees. 

Skills

We’re looking for those who show commitment to learning about Finance; how our business operates and the financial considerations that decisions are based upon.  
You’ll need to have (or be expecting) a 2:1 or above in a relevant analytical degree, demonstrating strong numeracy skills. 
You'll need to have previous experience within the finance industry either from work experiences or a placement year. 
Expectations are high from day one as you will need to be able to manage both your work and studies; show your commitment, drive and resilience and we’ll show you the rest.
