Malmesbury - United Kingdom


At Dyson we demand the highest standard of performance from the technologies we engineer. Our people expect the same from the technology that supports them. We are a community that appreciates and advocates better engineering. A community of pioneers.  

Our IT team’s aim is to create robust architecture, to manage data effectively and efficiently and to continue to grow our world-class team. Join us as a placement student and you’ll play an integral role in enabling business acceleration, growth and success. 


As an IT Placement student, you’ll work hand in hand with the business to understand technical requirements and implement new solutions. 

Over the course of your one year placement, depending on your interests, you’ll have the chance to develop your expertise across some of the following areas: 

Business Roles:
  • Business Partnering (portfolio management, service delivery management)
  • Business Analyst (owner experience analyst, finance business analyst)

Technical Roles:
  • Cyber security (security analyst, cyber security architect)
  • Application development (software developer, EDI developer)
  • PLM & Engineering (PLM support, CAD support)
  • Data services (data governance, data engineering)

In addition, you’ll be supported with a development framework designed to provide the technical and commercial know-how to help you drive your Dyson career. 

The work will be challenging and varied but you’ll be getting stuck in from day one, helping to influence the future of Dyson technology. 


Working at the forefront of technology is tough so standards and expectations are high. You’ll be contributing to live projects from the start so you’ll need to be curious, hungry to learn and ready to get stuck in. But it’s not just about technical expertise. You’ll need to:

  • Be due to graduate in 2021 and on track for a 2:1 or above, preferably in an IT or Business degree
  • Be able to evidence your passion for solving problems and delivering projects, either through your university course or as part of your extra-curricular activities.
  • Be able to thrive in Dyson’s fast-paced environment

Above all, you’ll want to play a key part in bringing the next generation of Dyson technology to the world.
