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.
Dyson offers a unique opportunity for talented individuals to invent, design and develop market leading products for the global market. By working in our world-class research, design and development (RDD) department, these individuals have the opportunity to work alongside leading technical specialists and highly motivated creative people to create products which fulfil our ambition of being truly different and better than our competitors.
After Sales & Support are a newly aligned global function that brings together Dyson’s expertise in product repair, refurbishment and spares management into a centralised organisation.
We are expanding the team in 2022 and driving a renewed focus to ensure we delight our customers at every touch point through a roadmap of projects and programmes of work.
To support the project roadmap and aspirations of the team, we are recruiting project managers to deliver key initiatives in this exciting area.
