Best known for its range of vacuum cleaners, Dyson aims to double its UK engineering team from 350 to 700. The new employees, who will include graduate design, mechanical and acoustic engineers, will be based at Dyson’s Wiltshire laboratories.
The recruitment drive will mean the number of people employed by Dyson in the UK will rise to 1600. The company employs 2500 people worldwide.
Dyson founder James Dyson says, ‘With excellent young aspiring scientists and engineers in our schools, it falls to companies such as Dyson to encourage this future generation. As our need for good design and technology increases, so does the need for creative and adventurous designers, engineers and scientists.’
