Dyson recruits 100 engineers at Malmesbury facility

Dyson has recruited 100 new engineers this year to work on upcoming inventions at its laboratories in Malmesbury, Wiltshire.

The company says it aims to double the number of engineers from 350 to 700 as it continues to spend £1m a week on research and development (R and D) to develop new technology.

As well as graduates, Dyson is looking to hire experienced engineers with expertise in areas including microbiology, fluid, mechanical, electrical, electromagnetic compatibility, thermal, acoustic and software engineering.

‘We are looking for bright minds to help us develop future Dyson technology,’ said Stephen Courtney, head of new ideas. ‘People who are unafraid of experimenting, tackling every stage of the design process and eager to prove their potential.’

In 2009, Dyson launched nine new machines and doubled its profits to £190m. Launches this year have included two new Dyson Air Multiplier fans: the AM02 Tower and the AM03 Pedestal.
