Category Finance Manager, Floorcare


United Kingdom - Malmesbury Office

About us

Dyson is a global technology enterprise. We solve the problems others choose to ignore, with surprising new inventions that defy convention and simply work better. We’re growing fast and our ambition is huge – more categories, more locations, and more people.

To achieve pioneering technology, we rely not only on inventive engineers but also on the expertise of our Floorcare Category Finance team. As finance business partners to the Category leadership, our team plays a vital role in supporting the development and execution of Dyson's financial strategies throughout the entire product lifecycle: from design and development to launch, sales, and end-of-life. This entails comprehensive commercial financial planning and analysis, effective management of business cases for Research, Design & Development (RDD) projects, as well as meticulous planning and control of Category RDD & Operations budgets.

We excel at transforming intricate commercial objectives and engineering challenges into coherent business cases, considering all relevant information. The true magic happens when we skillfully communicate these often-complex models to the appropriate stakeholders in clear and understandable language. At Dyson, we approach every task with a problem-solving mindset, consistently striving for innovative solutions. Within our support teams, we take pride in embracing our uniqueness, and above all, we embrace change to sustain our remarkable growth.

We're committed to our campus culture and don’t look to offer a regular hybrid working arrangement. This helps us to achieve the spirit of Dyson – collaboration, creativity, and inventiveness – in our inspiring, social, and dynamic workspaces.

About the role

Reporting to the Global Head of Finance (Floorcare), you will play a crucial role in ensuring that our new product development resources are invested wisely in projects that will generate attractive returns on investment. As part of a collaborative effort with a diverse group of stakeholders worldwide, you will actively create, develop, and maintain financial business cases for multiple projects. Additionally, you will lead monthly Finance Health Checks, conducting in-depth reviews of business cases with senior leaders who hold key decision-making roles.

Working closely alongside the NPI, Head of Product & Ranges, RDD, Design Managers, Group Marketing, and Product Costing teams, your responsibilities will encompass the creation and maintenance of the Category 5-year plan. This entails forecasting future volumes and P&L based on the latest product range plans and business case development. Furthermore, you will consolidate vital insights to drive informed business decisions, update business cases accordingly, and provide insightful category performance analysis, leading monthly review meetings with the Commercial team. Your keen eye for detail will also be put to use as you maintain and analyse product profitability data, ensuring a thorough assessment of future product range profitability.

In addition to these core responsibilities, you will be actively engaged in managing the monthly Financial Health Check process for the category and participating in product development milestones sessions. You will play a key supporting role in the preparation for monthly Exec category reviews, sharing your extensive category knowledge, learnings, and insights with markets across the organization.

At Dyson, we never settle for the status quo. We encourage continuous improvement and actively seek out best practices within our daily operations. As part of this commitment, you will lead or assist in cross-category projects, always aiming to propose and implement more effective ways of working. It is crucial to us that financial information is effectively communicated throughout the wider business, and you will actively engage in business partnering with relevant teams to ensure that business cases remain up-to-date and that all teams have the necessary support and access to relevant information.
