About Us

Our scale and rapid growth make Dyson rich in new opportunities. We value new ideas and diverse perspectives, so our people are trusted with real work and responsibility from the outset.

And you’ll be part of a global network of like-minded people – a community that supports and learns from each other.

The Global Aftersales team is integral to the set up, coordination and implementation of a complex Supply Chain Refurbishment operation. They plan, implement and control efficient flow of returns and storage of goods, producing high quality and optimal output of refurbishment, and related activities between the point of returns and the point of refurbishments ready for sale to meet sales requirements. Join us as an intern and from day one, you’ll be tasked with projects to enhance your existing skills and stretch you out of your comfort zone.

At our UK Technology Campus, we have an opportunity for a 12-month year in industry (starting in August 2022), for penultimate year students who are eager to play a key part in bringing the next generation of Dyson technology to the world.

About the role

Reporting to the Europe Refurbishment Planning/Global Transformation Lead, the Global Aftersales Placement Intern will oversee a supply chain aftermarket project that looks into improving refurbishment goods available for sale, thus its processes through the development and analytics of standard KPIs for refurbishment.  This role will work closely with Dyson Global Supply Chain Planning, Dyson Inventory Managers and Local Markets, and Operations and Partner Vendors team and operations functions globally. You will actively carry out the following activities whilst working towards greater independence over the course of your internship.

  • Support the development of standard KPIs for refurbishment and their integration with an aftersales balanced scorecard, beginning with operations in Europe and the Americas.

  • Analytics for improvement on returns projection (Finished Goods).

For the duration of your internship, you will have regular performance conversations as well as opportunities for development to enable you to build your reputation within the team, and this could be just the start. We’ll be looking to offer our high performing interns to return on one of our graduate programs.
