Senior HR Business Partner


United Kingdom - Malmesbury Office

About Us

Our People team are responsible for activating our unique philosophy and values to deliver  a truly Dyson people experience. It’s essential that we attract and hire the best talent, and retain them to build a solid foundation for our future growth. And our rapid growth means the organisation feels fast-moving, constantly changing, so there’s opportunity to make a difference and influence the right change.

We are looking for Senior HR Business Partners for our UK Campus across Group Functions, RDD and Markets so do please register your interest!

About the Role

You will lead the talent agenda for your business area, understanding the key talent, their strengths and development needs and actively participate in talent management discussions with the business teams. Improve HR operational practices, spotting things to fix and be proactive about driving efficiencies.

You will need to challenge and influence key stakeholders, ensuring that the people agenda is at the heart of the business decision and anticipate the changing needs of the business and drive the active management and development of talent.

A professional and pragmatic approach to stakeholder management is key as you work with business leads to develop attraction and retention plans, support line managers with development of a high performance culture, and deliver expert generalist HR support in a collaborative manner.

Our Group Functions span Finance & Legal, Estates & Facilities, Supply Chain & Logistics, HR, Marketing & Commercial, Digital & E-Commerce. From an RDD perspective, our Research and Science teams - scientists, mechanical engineers and specialists across each product category - are the experimenters and risk-takers behind Dyson problem-solving. 

About You

We expect you to be highly credible and professional with senior stakeholders, with immediate positive impact. Intellectually agile, quick thinking and articulate. You'll possess strategic HR thinking: having clear business acumen and passion, able to develop and articulate an HR/OD agenda that’ll drive positive outcomes. At the same time you'll be open, practical and pragmatic. Able to balance a high volume of conflicting priorities and working with energy and pace.

It goes without saying that you'll be a great relationship builder: connecting effectively across a range of senior professional leaders and personalities, and can work effectively across boundaries and networks. A confident and shrewd influencer who reads when and how to gain commitment of others. Can stand own ground but also be flexible as needed to serve the ‘bigger picture’.
Tenacious, results-driven and resilient are key attributes that you'll also need to possess; getting things done in the face of ambiguity and even opposition while inspiring others to do the same.

At Dyson, it's about more than our machines. We recognise that our success comes from our inventive people. We believe in including everybody and supporting you on your journey with us
