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.  Identifying a problem is the easy part. The clever bit is building the core technologies to solve it.

At our UK Technology Campus we have opportunities for 3, 6 and 12-month internships starting in the summer of 2020, for penultimate year students who are eager to play a key part in bringing the next generation of Dyson technology to the world.

Accountabilities

Join us as an intern and from day one you’ll be expected to hit the ground running on one of Dyson’s many live projects, and the chance to have a meaningful impact on the evolution of Dyson technology. You’ll be working as part of a larger project team and have your own set of project deliverables and the chance to take ownership of how these are achieved.

In a team who are always seeking new technologies and methods to make future Dyson technology possible, you’ll need to be highly motivated, creative, methodical and flexible in order to take on challenges with a pragmatic approach and inquisitive scientific mind.

Some of your tasks could include:

  • Designing and building experimental rigs to investigate new technologies
  • Analysis and interpretation of experimental data
  • Collaborating with technology suppliers
  • Combining experimental testing with analytical modelling to produce a design guides for a new technologies
  • Representing the Research team when presenting your work to Directors for review

Working with engineers, scientists and technical experts across a broad range of disciplines, you’ll be comfortable learning from others, but also sharing your own knowledge, ideas and opinions. In fact, we encourage this.

For the duration of your internship or placement, you will have regular performance conversations as well as opportunities for development to enable you to build your reputation within the team, and this could be just the start. We’ll be looking to offer our high performing interns to return on our graduate programme.

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 a relevant Engineering or Science discipline, but with an interest in technical science, engineering or product development.
  • 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.
  • Happy to build your own networks to learn from the technical expertise around you.
  • Creative in your approach to problem solving to ensure our machines are better.
All be reviewed however, we advise on applying as soon as possible in order to participate in our first round of assessment centres.
