Finance Graduate Programme - Cologne


Cologne - Germany

About us

At Dyson, we never stop transforming – our technologies and ourselves. We’re looking for emerging leaders in our finance team that are eager to learn by doing, not by watching. We pride ourselves at Dyson that graduates are given real responsibility to make a difference from day one.

Our Finance Graduates are ambitious, resilient and tenacious. Finance at Dyson supports the whole business from the creation of new products, investment in our marketing strategy, to capital expenditure. As a result no two career paths are the same with opportunities to have a very wide range of experiences.

Join us and you’ll be immersed in the heart of our commercial finance activities. A Finance career at Dyson is diverse, not just looking backwards at prior performance but many years into the future with new products. Not just working with other finance professionals, but with everyone in the business from engineers to the Board of Directors.

About the role

Across the graduate programme Dyson will train you in everything finance. You will rotate through placements in different areas of finance and across the business – supporting our markets, engineers, and commercial strategies. Starting in Cologne, placements could be across continental Europe as well as the UK depending on business need. You’ll need to be flexible to undertake whatever comes your way.

In all of the placements, you’ll need to demonstrate quick learning and adaptability. You can expect big responsibility and plenty of autonomy. It’s not easy but over the course of the graduate programme you’ll be supported with a development framework, enabling professional growth, training and opportunities to hone your skills and evolve your knowledge.

At the end of the programme you will have gained a wide range of experience across our finance functions and be ready to continue to drive your career at Dyson forwards at pace; taking ownership and responsibility to forge the direction of your Dyson career – you could move to any one of our offices across the globe where opportunities are open.

About you

We are looking for applications from a finance or accounting related degree background. You’ll need to have (or be expecting) a 2.1 or European equivalent award. But it is not just about education, we really need to see what you’ve achieved.

Whether it’s through internships, work experience or extra-curricular activities, you’ll be expected to evidence working in high performing teams but stand out as an impressive individual contributor. You’ll also need to demonstrate a commitment to a career in finance.

To succeed on this programme you’ll need to thrive in a fast-paced and ambiguous environment, be able to think on your feet and deliver exceptional results. You should be able to bring the best out of a team that are interested in numbers, think commercially and communicate insight that influences how Dyson does business whilst also balancing the need for appropriate control and continuous process improvement.

Show us when you’ve overcome the impossible and delivered exceptional results; put yourself out there rather than wait for things to happen. You must be comfortable taking the lead, making a stand, driving initiatives and influencing others along the way.

Above all, we’ll need to see your passion for Dyson and our Technology.

All applications will be reviewed however, we advise on applying as soon as possible in order to participate in our first round of virtual assessment centres.

Beyond that, you’ll also be invited to join a company bonus scheme, enjoy a Dyson pension, healthcare and a competitive amount of annual leave.
