Dyson begins its search for hundreds of the brightest minds in science, health, software, electronics and engineering. The new expansion – focused in UK and Singapore – is part of Dyson’s £2.75 billion global investment plan, first announced in November 2020, and builds on its commitment to deepen research into advanced robotics and AI with investment into new specialisms.
Alongside the expansion in Singapore, Dyson plans to hire 200 new science and research roles on its Malmesbury and Hullavington Innovation Campuses in the UK. The roles will be focused on fundamental scientific, mathematical and engineering breakthroughs across a range of fields including energy storage, AI, Machine Learning, high-speed digital motors, sensing technology, and material science.
With the new research-focused roles based on Dyson’s UK Innovation Campus, the site continues to grow as one of the largest R&D hubs in Britain. The site is home to one of the largest and most advanced energy storage labs in the UK as well as suites of scanning electron microscopes, electromagnetic compatibility chambers, semi-anechoic chambers, microbiology labs, hair-science labs, air filtration chambers, and advanced rapid prototyping facilities.
"We are growing our research and engineering teams to achieve radical leaps in the performance of our machines, underpinned by technologies such as solid-state batteries and robotics. The recruits will join a very broad team, from our Dyson Undergraduates at the Dyson Institute, to world-experts in their fields. Dyson is a very global business. Research and Development teams increasingly span UK, Singapore, Philippines, Malaysia and US, we sell in 83 markets globally, and our headquarters are in Singapore.” James Dyson, Founder & Chief Engineer
New research-focused roles will be added to Dyson’s two UK Campus’, which represent one of the largest R&D hubs in Britain, spanning over 800 acres. The Innovation Hub is a base for over 4,000 people, representing 59 nationalities, the majority of whom are engineers and scientists.
As well as research, the UK campus is home to the Dyson Institute of Engineering and Technology, where Dyson Undergraduates undertake their studies for their Engineering degree while working on real Dyson technologies, paying no tuition fees and earning a full salary. The Institute was the first education provider in the UK to be bestowed New Degree Awarding Powers meaning it will be able to award its own degrees. The first cohort of Dyson Undergraduates are set to graduate from the four-year degree programme later this year, though they are not required to, all plan to join Dyson.
