About us

Dyson is a pioneering global technology company. We are all about better ideas and new technologies. We believe everything could be better.

At Dyson we are encouraged to think differently, challenge convention and be unafraid to make mistakes. We’re creative, collaborative, practical and enthusiastic. But most of all we’re hugely passionate about what we do.

Our energy, determination and success mean that our business continues to grow at a remarkable pace. We explore new opportunities wherever we find them and we’re investing heavily in our products, our people and our infrastructure to ensure that we remain ahead of our competitors and deliver the quality that our customers have come to expect from Dyson.

About the role

We are looking for a Legal Counsel to join our Global Operations team to advise the business on commercial contracts and general commercial matters.

The Global Operations team is based in the UK and Singapore. We provide legal support in relation to Dyson’s global supplier relationships and manufacturing operations; helping to maintain effective relationships with our suppliers and manage any associated legal risk. We are trusted advisors who partner with the business to provide commercially orientated, solution-driven legal advice. Our work involves negotiating and advising on key commercial contracts across a broad range of subject matters (such as outsourcing, IT, manufacturing supply, R&D, marketing and customer experience) and resolving contractual disputes.

You’ll be based at our technology centre in Singapore and form part of a dynamic, ambitious and welcoming legal team committed to enabling Dyson’s continued success.

About you

This is what we will need you to do:

  • Provide expert advice on commercial and contractual issues across the business, helping the business navigate complex legal issues;
  • Draft, negotiate and advise on the terms of complex commercial contracts with Dyson’s suppliers;
  • Assist the business to resolve contract disputes with suppliers;
  • Build strong relationships with stakeholders in Dyson’s business, procurement, and the legal teams;
  • Work as part of a cross-functional team to provide commercial and contractual legal support on important projects within Dyson;
  • Help to deliver relevant legal training programmes;
  • Maintain an up to date knowledge of developments in relevant areas of law and contribute to the Legal team’s sharing of know-how; and
  • Help to maintain template documents and create appropriate guidance notes.

This is what you need to have:

  • Significant experience of providing legal advice on commercial contracts and a solid grasp of contract law. As a guide, we’d expect you to have at least 3 years of post-qualification experience in a role focussed on commercial contracts, obtained either in-house or in private practice;
  • A solid background in contract law and an ability to apply that knowledge in a pragmatic way;
  • Strong drafting skills and experience of leading the legal aspects of contract negotiations;
  • Commercial awareness and enthusiasm for actively contributing to business discussions;
  • Good communication skills and the ability to interact with stakeholders at all levels of the business;
  • The ability to work autonomously, with limited supervision, in an exciting, fast-paced, and constantly evolving environment; and
  • The confidence and gravitas to challenge decisions and actions when required.

Benefits
Dyson Singapore monitors the market to ensure competitive salaries and bonuses. Beyond that, you’ll enjoy a transport allowance and comprehensive medical care and insurance. But financial benefits are just the start of a Dyson career. Professional growth, leadership development and new opportunities abound, driven by regular reviews and dynamic workshops. And with a vibrant culture, the latest devices and a relaxed dress code reflecting our engineering spirit, it’s an exciting team environment geared to fuelling and realising ambition.
