As a senior consultant, you’ll be providing guidance and thought leadership to the business and IT teams, as well as communicating design decisions and managing the expectations of key stakeholders across the business. You’ll be expected to interpret requirements, identify capability gaps and produce design documents including logical design, capability maps, integration and data views, ensuring the smooth implementation of projects into business-as-usual support.

We have a very ambitious roadmap of technology changes to support our expanding product catalogue, so it’s a very exciting time to joining Dyson!

This role will be based on-site at our offices in Bristol City Centre.
