Dyson

Electrical & Electronic Manufacturing

What we do:

We’re Dyson. A global technology enterprise.

We're about better ideas and better technologies. It's about finding better ways with the right people to work with us. Reinventing as we go.

The start-up mentality of our early days still runs through Dyson today, led by our Founder and Chief Engineer – James Dyson himself. We’re family owned, which means that, unlike our rivals, we still take chances. Not beholden to anonymous shareholders, a series of calculated risks has transformed Dyson from a single product company making vacuum cleaners to designers of revolutionary hand dryers, fans, lighting, hair care and the more recently announced battery electric vehicle.

Why we do it:

For some Dyson owners, our technology enriches their lives to the point that our machines become iconic. To them, we're not just a technology company; we’re a ‘movement’. One that stands for new thinking. One that's not afraid to take on bigger rivals. And one that can improve people's lives.

That can be a rewarding atmosphere to work in. Just as much as our owners fall in love with Dyson technology, our people fall in love with Dyson.

We don't always get things right. But fighting to do it our way is a matter of pride. And something that we’ll not give up lightly.

So instead of expecting consultants and external suppliers to feel the same burning ambition to improve and innovate that we do, we bring specialist talent into Dyson – then give them the world-class facilities the job requires. Because if a job's worth doing, we think it's worth doing ourselves.

The People who do it:

We are a young, dynamic team. The average age of engineers here is 26, and our youth is no accident.

If you're going to change the way things are made and innovate, you have to think in new refreshing ways.

 

"The enthusiasm and lack of fear is important," says James Dyson. "Not taking notice of experts and ploughing on because you believe in something is important. It's much easier to do when you're young."

Here’s what Laura, one of our engineers has to say -

“At Dyson, we're encouraged to find out more about ourselves.  Within our team we'll learn something new and share it, growing our knowledge together.  It's about mindset; we've got a problem that needs a solution.

There are good days and challenging days. Looking back over my last three years at Dyson, I'd have to say that launching the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer was pretty special.  And I remember being a bit scared when I first met James Dyson! Yet when you're in a review meeting with him, you're treated like an engineer, with the freedom to give your opinion and know that it matters. It's a great experience.

Like everyone at Dyson, I'm constantly learning, constantly improving.  There's a lot of potential here, and it's going to be a really exciting future.”

We are a team that works hard and plays hard too with lots of outside activities, clubs there is as a social life to suit all. And of course, there's the Dyson Christmas party. It’s unlike anything you’ve ever experienced – live music, street food, silent discos, unbelievable costumes, and thousands of Dyson people celebrating together.

 

Into the Future:

At Dyson, we believe everything could be better.

 

Fuelled by frustration with things that don’t work correctly and a relentless obsession with making them work better, we’ve spent the last 25 years pioneering inventions and continually improving.

And this will continue.

Our ambition is huge. But it’s not merely about more people and more profit. Dyson is all about better ideas and new technologies.

It’s about inventing the future.

In the Community:

We support engineering education, medical research and the community local to Dyson's HQ in Malmesbury, UK.

Our work encourages young minds to explore engineering and learn the importance of hands-on experimentation - and the benefits of failure.

We support research to advance medicine and science. Our donations have contributed to cutting-edge research and state-of-the-art healthcare facilities.

The James Dyson Foundation, Dyson's charitable arm, introduces young people to the exciting world of engineering, encouraging them to think differently, make mistakes and realise their engineering potential.

The Dyson Institute of Engineering and Technology is unlike any university. It’s for those with a passion for solving problems and a fascination for how things work; brave people who’d rather get hands-on with real engineering challenges.

The James Dyson Award is an international design award that celebrates, encourages and inspires the next generation of design engineers. It's open to current and recent design engineering students, as part of our mission to get young people excited about design engineering.

The Dyson School of Design Engineering is the newest engineering department at Imperial College London. It was formed in July 2014, building on the long-standing design and engineering expertise at Imperial as well as the world-renowned Innovation Design Engineering (IDE) programme run jointly by Imperial and the Royal College of Art.
