Malmesbury, Wiltshire, United Kingdom

Description

For a Dyson machine to be successful, it requires rigorous commercial consideration. From the first prototype, to beyond its unboxing. Our strong financial planning and operations are what take Dyson ideas beyond the labs of RDD, onto shelves, and into the homes of our owners across the world.


We now have a new opportunity for a Finance Business Analyst to join our GBI&N team and help in delivering robust and insightful analysis of performance. This will involve working closely with the Market Managers and their teams to identify opportunities to improve delivery of key KPIs.

Market Overview

Home to our global Research, Design and Development centre and all of our Commercial functions, Dyson HQ is tucked away in countryside famous for the railway tunnels and bridges of Isambard Brunel, who revolutionised modern engineering. Our secluded location helps us to protect our ideas and stay independent-minded. Yet nearby are the fashionable cities of Bristol and Bath (where a young James Dyson invented cyclone technology).

Function Overview

As Dyson’s most established market, GB&I&N provides unique challenges to our growth. We thrive on confronting these head on: developing new categories, stronger claims, more targeted marketing and more engaging retail environments to fight off tough competition. It builds great camaraderie and cross-team support – and motivates us to set increasingly ambitious targets.

  • Educated to Degree level or equivalent
  • Strong analytical skills, conversant with market research and data sources
  • Good presentation and persuasive skills

And with a vibrant culture, flexible working hours, the latest devices and a relaxed dress code reflecting our engineering spirit, it’s an exciting team environment geared to creativity, innovation and ambition.
