Security Day Officer


United Kingdom - Malmesbury Office

About us

Dyson is growing fast and our ambition is huge – more categories, more locations, and more people. Pioneering technology takes more than just inventive engineers. At Dyson, we take a problem-solving approach to everything we do.

Our Security team protects our unique technology, which is what sets us apart from the competition. It takes years to develop and is our most precious asset so it’s essential we keep it secret. The team provides a safe environment, safe communication, and safe travel for Dyson people as we continue to grow fast and become more global.

About the role

As a Security Officer, you will be working a Monday to Friday day shift pattern, doing 47.5 hours per week, across our three UK sites.

Your contributions will be essential to our security framework, as you collaborate closely with the day officer teams. You will take charge of comprehensive control and monitoring of physical access, along with executing thorough internal, external, perimeter, car park, and ad-hoc patrols. You will be operating and overseeing a fully functional Monitoring Centre and CCTV system, while also managing a card access control system. Swift and effective responses will define your approach to incidents, as you step into the role of Chief Fire Marshal at incident control points, especially during fire register consolidation. Beyond the confines of the site, you will serve as a responsive unit for off-site locations, extending our security presence.

You will be enhancing visitor and VIP experiences through dedicated support of front-of-house services, ensuring optimal efficiency. Furthermore, you will assume a vital position as Reception in specific high-security buildings during out-of-hours or as directed, bolstering site-wide security measures.

In addition to supporting investigations and ensuring the integrity of evidence chains, you will conduct thorough searches when required – covering employees, bags, vehicles, transit cases, and various containers. Your role extends to providing security assistance during events, functions, and gatherings, and you will be equipped to administer first aid or CPR as needed. Your proactive engagement will fortify our security structure and contribute to a secure operational environment.
