Operational Engineering
United Kingdom - Malmesbury Office

About us

At Dyson we are obsessed with continuously making things better, pushing the boundaries of what others have defined as impossible.  We do this by making products that solve real-world problems using both novel and established technologies in new and innovative ways.

Our Verification and Test Team plays an integral part in determining how, when, and where we verify and validate innovative technologies and products to ensure designs are robust to real-world conditions and perform better than the competition. While our primary function is to verify requirements, at the early stages of a project we add value by characterising the performance of prototypes and feeding back data to drive good design.

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

We are seeking a highly skilled CNC Machinist to join our Malmesbury team. The role entails producing precision machined parts through CNC machine programming, setup, and operation, with a focus on maintaining quality and safety standards. This includes record-keeping, equipment maintenance, and inventory management.

In this position, you will meticulously plan machining operations by analysing work orders, engineering drawings, and material specifications, while also interpreting geometric dimensions and tolerances (GD&T). You will be responsible for organising material inventory, ensuring sufficient stock levels, and expediting orders when necessary.

Additionally, you will compile a comprehensive service history for each machine tool. Quality control is integral, with a requirement to document measurement data through inspection reports, collaborating with the Metrology department.

To stay at the forefront of CNC machining, you will actively engage in educational opportunities and training courses, continuously advancing your expertise and knowledge. This role demands precision, attention to detail, and a commitment to maintaining high-quality standards in CNC machining operations.
